The MOB are one of SlamBall’s most successful and storied teams. Continuing to be led by Head Coach Brendan Kirsch, the squad looks to extend their winning culture into SlamBall Summer: Series 6. For Coach Kirsch and his Assistant Coach, Noah Ballou, the first step to achieving this was drafting handler Cameron Horton with the fourth overall pick in the 2023 draft.
“He can handle the rock. He can get to the rim. He can distribute the ball. He looks to pass first,” said Coach Kirsch. “We needed a guy like that to run our offense.”
Not only a fan of Horton’s ability on the court, Coach Kirsch stated his admiration for how he handles himself off the floor.
“Off the court, great kid,” added Coach Kirsch. “Yes sir, no sir kid. Makes everyone around him better and has high character. When you put all of that together we knew he was going to be the number four overall pick as long as no one took him ahead of us, and we were worried about that.”
While both Coaches Kirsch and Ballou are excited to have selected Horton with their number four overall selection, the Alabama native recognizes the success that both coaches have seen on the coaching and playing sides of SlamBall.
“The MOB have a historical background of winning. So what I’m learning from Coach Kirsch and Ballou are the x’s and o’s about SlamBall,” stated Horton. “With Coach Ballou, he is one of the greatest ever at my position and he’s just teaching me the little in’s and out’s. By doing that, they are going to make me a complete SlamBall player.”
As Coach Kirsch and Horton continue to work together, the two look forward to showing the world another winning MOB team as the season is just weeks away.
