Basketballghana.com can confirm Pope John High School and Junior Seminary has officially offered scholarships to students picked by the institution in the 2016 High School and College Draft.

The students, Jonathan Teye and Casburg Kobina Mensah have been admitted to the prestigious Catholic high school after impressing in multiple basketball drills run during the four day session at the University of Ghana earlier this year.

Team Coach James Okine was present to see both players registered in the presence of the Head of Sports for the institution, Fred Dwamena.

Center Teye and Guard Mensah will team up with members of the school’s basketball team to compete in various high school competitions prominent among them the Sprite Ball Championship which is set to take place in January 2017.

After placing third to clinch the school’s first ever medal at the highly rated event, the team was in need of additions to replace talented players like Emmanuel Dery who have since graduated after excelling in the 2016 edition.

Pope John’s beat Opoku Ware School 26-19 to win the bronze medal after falling 22-24 to eventual champions St. Augustine’s College in the semi final.

The High School and College Draft is a Rite Sports Limited initiative that aims at securing scholarships for talented individuals to top rated high schools and colleges in Ghana.
