By D1 Circuit Staff, 07/06/18, 6:00PM EDT


Al-Amir Dawes earned 3rd-Team All-EYBL honors this regular season, helping guide the Playaz to yet another Peach Jam berth.

We caught up with the high-major point guard:

Allie Krings: You had a great season and we’re named to numerous All-Session teams. Tell us about those accomplishments.

Al-Amir Dawes: It was a lot of hard work. When you’re in the gym every single day, putting the work in, everything will work itself out.

Q: Is there anything you’re working on in particular?

AD: I’m working on everything. How to be a leader, make sure my shot is good, my dribble-drive, basic stuff.

Q: Do you have a teammate that makes you better?

AD: Yeah, Khalif Battle. He’s great off the ball. He can catch, drive, he’s been shooting the ball well for us.

Q: What’s your ultimate personal goal in the EYBL?

AD: Making it to Peach Jam. I’ve played 17s twice, and made it last year, so making it to Peach Jam is an honor.

Q: What’s it like playing for the Playaz?

AD: I’ve loved my experience. My team is like my family.
