James Fives signs NLOI with Loyola

Just before their season even started the Loyola men’s basketball team has 6-foot-6 wing James Fives sign a National Letter of Intent to join the team next season. Fives, of the Hill School in Pottstown, PA, averaged 13 points and eight rebounds per game as a senior and helped his team fin their first-ever Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association championship with a 20-3 record.

“James is a very versatile player who is going to be a tremendous fit into our program next year,” Loyola Head Coach G.G. Smith said in a press release from the school. “He plays with a great amount of energy and is someone who will hit shots for us out of set pieces, as well as pulling up and creating for himself.”

Prior to playing at the Hill School, Fives played three seasons at Scranton Preparatory School in his home town of Scranton, Pa. There he averaged 17 points and six rebounds per game in 2011-12 and 15 points and eight rebounds per game the following year.

ESPN.com describes Fives as “a skilled perimeter forward with a strong body” who “lacks ideal lateral quickness” but says he can be “an ideal complimenting piece…and consistent shot-maker on the perimeter.”

You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
