Bob Renwick, and Gary Wilfong Sr. started the basketball program 25 years ago with AYBT and then partnered with the Meijer State Games of Michigan. After over two decades of building the program, the pair retired, leaving big footsteps for whoever came next.
Gary Wilfong Jr, stepped in following in the footsteps of his friend and his father to direct the Meijer State Games of Michigan basketball tournaments. Gary will be coordinating over 700 youth basketball players for the Summer Games.
Gary currently organizes 12 tournaments a year, 2 of which are with the Meijer State Games of Michigan. This year alone the tournament has gotten upwards of fifteen teams from the east side of the state to register. The Meijer State Games take place on the west side of the state, but Gary says the east side is just as excited to get involved and playing.
One of the overarching goals of Gary's is to keep working on getting teams from all over the state and build off the participation of west Michigan teams, so all areas of Michigan are represented making the tournament a true statewide tournament..
Gary humbly attributes much of his success to his father, Wilfong Sr., and his friend, Renwick:
