    I see two kids from NorCal, but would like to add a couple more for consideration. I centered a match yesterday featuring some really good talent that should get a chance to show what they've got. Lepore should check out these kids on Viking Hook: Simmons (9), Driver (18), Almendares (31), plus a couple others. It's hard to tell what the kids will be like when they come out the other side of 17, so I'd think it would be wise to track as many promising players as possible.
