Walton-Moss shines at Cabrini while improving as student, father

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Three years ago, Aaron Walton-Moss’ future in basketball had all but flatlined. His play at Camden (N.J.) High School had turned heads, but his grades turned away Division I coaches and scholarship offers.All he wanted was another chance.“Camden is known for bad stuff that goes on, but there’s also a lot of people that made it out and did great things,” Walton-Moss said. “It’s an opportunity to do something positive with yourself.”Now, he’s doing exactly that at Division III Cabrini College.The 6-foot-1 guard has been the centerpiece for the No. 6 Cavaliers (21-1), who currently sit atop the Colonial States Athletic Conference standings. He ranks fifth in the country with 24.7 points per game and has also hauled in 10.7 rebounds per contest.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut more impressive than his performance on the court has been his turnaround in the classroom and at home. Now the father of a 3-year-old daughter, Walton-Moss is committed to ensuring his own well-being and her long-term success.“I don’t want to sit here and do good for one semester, then fall off for nothing,” he said. “Now, I’ve just got to make sure I stay on that right track“For a long time, getting there wasn’t easy.Growing up in Camden posed its own set of challenges. Hearing the periodic interlude of gunshots was commonplace and many kids struggled to escape life on the streets.When his older brother passed away from cancer, Walton-Moss was actually thankful that his brother didn’t meet a more violent fate.“I rather it be him dying from that than getting gunned down in the street,” he said. “We knew it was coming.”Walton-Moss knew that life wasn’t for him, and basketball could be his ticket to something better.In terms of talent, he was set. He earned second-team all-state honors as a senior in 2009 and averaged a double-double. Cabrini guard Vinny Walls, who played with Walton-Moss at Camden, said his in-game mental awareness was nearly flawless.“His I.Q. was very high on the court,” Walls said. “Nobody’s perfect, but in that sense, he always tries to make the right choice in game situations.”But the classroom was a different story.Coming out of middle school, Walton-Moss said he focused solely on basketball. He finally realized by his junior year that he couldn’t play without the grades, so he tried to pick up the slack.By that point, it was too late. Temple and other schools stopped pursuing him. He didn’t play at all during the next two years.Instead, he had a daughter to worry about.Ariyiania was born in 2010 and his focus immediately shifted to her. He took jobs at Wal-Mart and the Camden Bureau of Recreation for financial stability before the Cabrini opportunity presented itself.It started in 2011, thanks to the NBA lockout. Walton-Moss was working-out with Sacramento Kings forward Jason Thompson when he was introduced to Marcus Kahn, Cabrini’s head coach. Kahn talked to him about his situation and the possibility of playing in Radnor (Pa.), but he never expected the skilled Walton-Moss to even apply.He did, and then Kahn received another surprise.“Two weeks later, he’s coming in with an acceptance letter,” Kahn said. “I thought, ‘OK, well I guess this is getting real now.’”Once on the team, Walton-Moss accepted the role of sixth man and made his presence known immediately. He averaged 11.5 points in 19 games and proved to Kahn he was serious about rebuilding his basketball career.He then needed to overcome one final academic hurdle, as he missed the first semester of the 2012-2013 season due to poor grades. Since that point, though, Walton-Moss said his GPA has progressively risen.That doesn’t surprise Kahn, who said his work ethic is second to none.“He’s taken that same mindset over this last year off the floor,” Kahn said. “Basketball can go away, so he’s gotta learn to have a backup plan.”In an ideal situation, Walton-Moss said he would like a chance to play professionally. He wants to pay for Ariyiania’s college tuition well ahead of time. Now that she can understand the sport, she’s arguably Walton-Moss’ biggest fan. She attends Cabrini home games and often brings a smile to his face with her candid commentary.“The TV can come on, and she points at it and says, ‘That’s my dad playing,’” he said. “I would love to try to get my foot in the door of the NBA or the D-League so she can really see it up close.”If playing basketball won’t accomplish that task, he is hoping to either coach or break into sports radio.After all that he’s been through, his future is bright. He was given the chance he so desperately wanted, and now he isn’t looking back.“It doesn’t matter because talent is going to show wherever you’re at,” Walton-Moss said. “As long as you do what you’re going to do and handle your business…that’s all that really matters.” Comments Published on February 19, 2014 at 12:16 am Contact Tyler: tfpiccot@syr.edulast_img read more

MLB trade deadline: With Yankees’ recent pitching woes, where do they go for help?

first_imgNoah Syndergaard, MetsWhy him: Who knows what the Mets are doing? Not me. The Mets and Yankees haven’t completed a significant deal in more than a decade, but Syndergaard is the type of pitcher worth chasing, even if it means paying a tiny bit more than the Yankees would like. His issues this year seem more like an aberration than his new normal. Robbie Ray, DiamondbacksWhy him: Ray would be a bit of a gamble, no doubt. He’s a lefty who can rack up the strikeouts — he’s averaged at least 12.0 per nine each of the past three seasons — but his inability to find the plate at times is a bit disconcerting; he’s averaged 4.3 walks per nine those three years. He’s lasted at least six full innings in 10 of his past 11 starts, which is big. Ray has one year of arbitration remaining, and the Diamondbacks would be willing to move him in the right deal. Trevor Bauer, IndiansWhy him: Because the incident in Kansas City doesn’t mean Bauer will melt down in the pressure of a New York postseason. And like the Giants, the Indians could use a promising outfielder (and, yeah, they’re pretty familiar with Frazier). Here’s the thing though: Even though every single Cleveland fan should be upset that Bauer is reportedly available despite the team holding a playoff spot and a legit shot of advancing in October, would the front office really trade Bauer to a team they could very well face in the postseason? No way, right? Right? And now, suddenly, the pitching staff can’t stop teams from scoring. MORE: Watch live MLB games all season long on fuboTV (7-day free trial)In their past eight games — three wins, five losses — Yankees pitchers have allowed 79 runs, easily the most in the majors. The next-worst team in that stretch? Oakland, at 50 runs allowed. Heck, the Mariners, Indians and Astros combined to allow just 74 runs, total, for 23 games, in that same span. And, yes — small sample size alert, of course. But if there are certain times in a baseball season when small sample sizes are more impactful in a team’s decision-making process, the two weeks leading up to the only trade deadline of the 2019 season probably sit atop that list. The pitching woes spread all through the staff, but have been especially pointed in the rotation. Masahiro Tanaka made one start in the stretch, allowing 12 runs in 3 1/3 innings. J.A. Happ made one start, too, and lasted just 3 1/3 innings, too, giving up six runs. The other three guys in the rotation each made two starts, and here are their ERAs in those games: Domingo German (11.00), CC Sabathia (11.88) and James Paxton (13.50). Yikes. Heck, even the two guys at the back end of the bullpen, Zack Britton and Aroldis Chapman, combined to allow eight walks, five hits and four earned runs in five innings. The Rays are now just 8.5 back and the Red Sox — who scored 44 runs in taking three of four from the Yankees in Fenway Park — are nine back. So what should the Yankees do? They’re not going to panic like the playoffs are in danger, of course. They’re still pretty safe (the Rays own the second wild card spot at the moment). But this isn’t a year the Yankees will be satisfied with just reaching October. Nine full seasons have passed since the last time the Yankees reached the World Series, and while that might not seem like a lot for most franchises, it’s the third-longest drought since Babe Ruth joined the team. Yeah. And this is a team with otherwise legitimate World Series aspirations, but it’s hard to imagine a rotation that just went through that disaster rolling through the American League playoffs, right? Trading for a fourth or fifth starter probably isn’t going to cut it if they want to improve their playoff prospects. Sabathia, in his final year in the bigs, just went on the IL for the second time this year. He’ll be back at some point, but GM Brian Cashman is a big fan of building quality depth, as he’s shown many times through the years and even earlier this season when he traded for Edwin Encarnacion without a permanent lineup spot to give him.With Marcus Stroman — an All-Star this year — off the trade block, having moved from the Blue Jays to the Mets, let’s look at the four starters the Yankees should pursue. Madison Bumgarner, GiantsWhy him: Because the goal is to win in October, right? Bumgarner, who is a free agent after the season, is one of the best ever in October, and though it feels like he’s been around forever, he only turns 30 on his next birthday, which just happens to be the day after the trade deadline. And, yes, the Giants’ recent surge has them back in the NL wild card picture, but they’re a couple of games back with the Phillies, Brewers, Nationals, Cubs and Cardinals ahead of them in the wild card race. Build a package around Clint Frazier — the Giants have needed an outfielder with a bit of pop for years — and make it happen.  The Yankees opened the second half of their season by winning seven of their first nine games and stretched their AL East lead to double-digits, with the Rays (10 back) and the Red Sox (11 back) as the only teams within dreaming distance. Life in the Bronx was good. The seemingly charmed season was writing another chapter en route to a destiny-laden October. Sure, the team had been forced to deal with a cavalcade of injuries most of the year, but day after day the replacements stepped up and performed as well or better than the regulars on the injured list. There were no excuses, only winning for a team a very impressive 31 games over the .500 mark. last_img read more
