Westchester basketball grows, wins national title
WESTCHESTER – Roy Ramos’ first call after deciding he would quit playing basketball after his freshman season of college was to his dad.
Roy Ramos Sr., knowing that basketball and his son were inseparable, told him that they should start a youth basketball program together. Roy agreed, and the two took a trip to the park district gym, where they picked out 10 kids to start the Buckeyes Basketball program.
That was 2006. This year, the Buckeyes’ eighth-grade team – one of the program’s seven squads of players ranging from third grade to high school – won the eighth-grade AAU Division II national championship in Orlando. The Amateur Athletic Union’s highly competitive traveling basketball program is regarded as the top showcase of pre-college basketball players.
