Pembroke's Vasquez Moves to Virginia

11/10/09
Taylor Vasquez, a guard on the Pembroke Academy boy's basketball team, is moving to Virginia. This is according to Pembroke Athletic Director Suzanne Klink, who sent me the following e-mail this morning: "In speaking with Taylor's parents, they have told me that it is ok to tell folks that this information is correct."

Vasquez was one of two returning starters for the Spartans. He was one of Class I's better shooters, and the loss will certainly hurt Pembroke's chances over the next two seasons.

  1. Vasquez leaving will open up Coleton Neely's game and allow him to show off his outside shooting abilities. Too bad, because of Neely's court visibility, he would have set up Vasquez for numerous 3 pt. attempts.

  8. Somehow it always ends up being about either Milford or BG. I guess their fans are just more vocal...or their fans know about this site, and not as many fans of the other schools do...

    Best of Luck Taylor

  11. Its funny Milford is being dogged cause they started discussing themselves on here but it was Pembroke who asked Jeremy for a comparison of Neely and Mitchell. By the way that turned out bad for you.

    As for Taylor it is quite obvious that the assistant coach for Pembroke is going to miss him badly. He was very upset with him leaving over the weekend. I witnessed it myself first hand.

    Taylor was a class act and a good kid. Some of the Milford kids were friends with him as well. I feel bad that the kid is being taken out of his high school and moved to a new place. That can be tough on a kid. I wish him the best and hope the move works out for him and his family on the court as well as off.

  13. Milford isn't mad, Taylor is. The kid had to move and the first thing you guys did was celebrate him leaving by saying Neelly would be a better player cause he wouldn't have to pass to Taylor.
    Talk about throwing your boy under the bus. I guess that is what you get when you bring in a new roster just so you can be competitive. If your a freshmen or soph on Pembroke I would worry if more players transfer next year from say Brady or MV. Your spot could be the next one taken and then you will be looking for a house in Concord!

  14. Sour grapes Milford fan!!!! Sorry to see Taylor leave, but Pembroke will will adapt to his absence I'm sure!!! Of course we hate to see him leave and I'm sure you are happy to see that he's gone. But, words are cheap and Milford will have to prove themselves on the court!! Up to now they haven't done that!!! Sorry!!!!

  15. Sour Grapes? Proven anything? Did Pembroke prove something last year?
    I think Portsmouth did....
