"Did you know they now make GPS units that can get you to Mars and back? Yep. Some major-college basketball coaches are using them.
In the past few months, coaches from Duquesne, West Virginia, Penn State, Dayton, Ohio State, Virginia, Purdue and Northwestern have all landed on Mars. They've found basketball life in the form of Robby Carmody.
Carmody is a sophomore basketball player at Mars High School. He's a 6-foot-4, 190-pound guard who has loads of athletic ability and talent, and is having a sensational season, averaging 20 points a game and shooting an astonishing 71 percent from the field.
And it's not an overstatement to say Carmody is likely one of the most heavily recruited sophomores ever in the WPIAL."
