"The Gun we bought several years ago has helped our team average 27 wins per season over the past 5 years. This includes the 2012 NCISAA 3A State Championship. The number of players that have benefitted from Gun include these Atlantic Coast Conference players who graduated from Ravenscroft: Marc Campbell (UNC 2009), Ryan Kelly (Duke 2013), Luke Davis (UNC 2015), Joell Hopkins (Florida State 2015), and Madison Jones (Wake Forest 2016). Without the Gun, these players wouldn’t be where they are today."

HS career record stands at 613-123.
"Our improved success as a program has increased each year due to the fact we were able to shoot higher percentages from the floor. We've increased our 3 pt shooting percentage from 33% as a team 2 years ago to over 40% as a team in our championship season. We also shoot 52% from 2 as a team. These shooting percentages directly relate to our game-like workouts and added repetition that our Gun shooting machines offer. "
