‘Last Chance U’ earns Emmy nomination

By Brenda De La Cruz

The second season of Netflix’s “Last Chance U: Basketball”, featuring the men’s basketball team, was nominated for a Sports Emmy. 

This is the second time they have been nominated for Outstanding Serialized Sports Documentary Series.

Head Coach John Mosley was notified of the nomination, but due to the award show being held at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York, neither the team nor Mosley were able to attend. 

Mosley said he feels great that his players get to see and be a part of this, but ultimately says they will go on as athletes, whether they are nominated or not. 

They were nominated along with four other TV show series in the same section.

Although the season is currently over, Mosley still welcomes potential or aspiring athletes to reach out for a chance to try out for the team. 

Interested athletes who would like to join the team can complete a form at https://www.elacathletics.com/recruits/Recruits. 

Mosely has become very popular due to the Netflix series, gaining a good following of fans.

Anyone wanting to reach out for things such as speaking engagements, basketball camp or general inquiries can do so via his website coachjohnmosley.com. 

Mosley is often asked to speak at events, and although he says yes to some, his focus is on coaching and mentoring his team. 

“Anything that’s in line, yes, but something other than coaching, no,” Mosley said.

The next event hosted by the men’s basketball team is the ELAC Summer Night Youth Basketball Camp. 

The camp is open to girls and boys between the ages of 7-14 and will be held from June 19-22 at the men’s basketball gym from 5-9 p.m. 

In the past, this youth camp has  seen 50-100 kids participate.

The Sports Emmy Awards were held live Monday via https://watch.theemmys.tv/.
