Susan McKinney High 2019-20 Season Preview
Dr. Susan S. McKinney Secondary School of the Arts is nestled in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, just steps from the historic Brooklyn Navy Yards and scenic Fort Greene Park. It also happens to be one of the smallest schools in PSAL Division A, with only 200 high school students. Despite that very significant handicap, Coach Fady Musa and Asst Coach Clifford Smith have a tremendous job of building the proigram into a contender. They won one game in their first year, five games in year two and then followed that with 12, 14 and 14 win seasons. Coming off a 14-3 season, Coach Musa thinks they are poised for a title run in 2019-20. His philosophy is all about getting his guys to make a collective team effort in achieving a common goal.
Here are McKinney’s key players for this season:
Daven Floyd Fulmore (2020) 6’1 guard - Fulmore is a long and athletic lights-out shooter. Fulmore’s coming out party was as a sophomore vs. Brooklyn Colligate in the first round of Boroughs, knocking down nine 3’s and a total of 29pts.

Joel Koryor (2021) 6’3 guard - Koryor is one of the top perimeter defenders in the city. He is also a great ball handler, a solid shooter who finishes above the rim. This season, Koryor looks to take his game to the next level as one of the leaders on the team.
