Melrose Basketball Team To Be Featured On MTV Show

Via Twitter, Melrose High School Head Basketball Coach Jermaine Johnson announced that MTV/ Red Line Films has decided to feature Melrose Varsity Basketball Team and some of its players this year on an unnamed reality television show. According to Coach Johnson, Melrose was selected, following a Nationwide Search, to partake in this opportunity to highlight the highly respected High School Basketball Program. Why Melrose? Well the South Memphis High School has a rich basketball tradition that dates back over 2 decades, their star player Adonis Thomas is one of the top recruits in the Class of 2011 and could end up being the valedictorian of his class, they have 4 players that will likely receive Division 1 scholarships, and they will attempt to defend their 2010 State Basketball Championship. Though many details were not available on the show at this time, Melrose High School and Coach Johnson are expecting filming to start next week.
