OTE ALUMS EXCEL

As we enter 2018, we celebrate the third basketball season in a row that every OTE 8th grade alum made their freshman, JV or varsity teams at high school tryouts. This season it was 34 out of 34 8th graders that made the jump into high school programs, including Loyola, Whitney Young, Ignatius, Payton, Jones Prep, Resurrection, Notre Dame, Taft and more. Since 2003, more than 90 percent of OTE alums have gone on to play high school basketball. OTE is proud of all of our alums.
