It’s the usual for a kid to move on to college and move away from his family and friends. It’s even harder for a teenager who has spent his high school years miles away from his home to pick up and move. When making this decision one knows that it’s for the best for the prospective student / athletes, take Isaac Copeland hailing from Raleigh North Carolina Copeland attended Miller High School last season and decided to transfer to Brewster Academy (NH).
Brewster Academy (NH) has been a frequent rest stop for future collegiate and NBA stars, such as Thomas Robinson, T.J. Warren, Semaj Christon and Mitch McGary to name a few. Copeland was looking to prepare for his future as he is committed to Georgetown University and decided that Brewster would be the best place to prepare him. “Brewster is known for getting people ready to play in college so it was just the place I needed to go to” says Copeland.
Brewster went on to win the NEPSAC AAA championship along with the National Prep School Championship, pretty impressive to say the least. The NEPSAC is by far the best league in the country hands down, each day you are practicing against division one players as well as playing against them each time you play a contest. “It feels great. Winning the NEPSAC and National tournament was our goal coming into the year so feels great to get it done”
Copeland will be heading to Georgetown next season and has designed a blueprint to prepare for the future ” I plan to just get in the weight-room a lot over the spring and work on my perimeter skills since I’ll be playing mainly the SF position in college”
We have seen Isaac play in style all year and asked him what was his favorite sneaker to play in ” My favorite sneakers to play in are the Chicago 10s. They feel good and are one of my favorite pair of retro Jordan’s”.
