|Bed Lori-2023 WF-Caldwell|
It can sometimes be rare for young players to exhibit leadership traits; however, Bedi Lori (5’8/WF/2023/Caldwell) is doing just for Scott Bradley’s 2023 New Birth Warriors squad. Lori, according to Coach Bradley, leads the Warriors, one of the most talented 6th grade teams in the state. “Bedi is the leading score on my team and one of my leaders,” said Bradley. He’s not just a leader; Lori is skilled; is an excellent shooter; and attacks the glass with true conviction. “He [Lori] works the glass well; plays hard; has a good attitude, and can run the point when we need him to,” continued Bradley. Lori has recently experienced a growth spurt, and at his size and skill set, he’s versatile and able him to play multiple positions.
During the spring and summer AAU season, Lori is a key piece on Drew Lavender’s All-Ohio Red squad, where he’s surrounded by even more talent, but still manages to stand out. Of course we are very familiar with Lori’s talent, as we’ve seen him ball on several occasions, both on the summer circuit as well as at our Buckeye Prep Elite Showcases. In fact, we think so highly of Lori that we invited him to participate in the prestigious Ohio North vs South All-Star game in September, and selected him as Third Team All-Ohio last season. Moreover, we have Lori listed among our top 10-15 plauers in the state in his class.
Lori is already preparing himself for future success, as he currently practices with players from his local high school near Caldwell. In addition, Lori is projected to skip 7th grade middle school ball all together next year and go directly to the 8th grade team. Speaking of middle school, Lori has already demonstrated that he takes his education seriously, as he’s packing an impressive 4.0 GPA, and was selected to Buckeye Prep’s All-Academic Team last season. You can catch Lori in action at our March 4th elite showcase.
