Indianapolis, IN.  The American Basketball Association (ABA) today added its second team to the state of New Jersey in Edison that will begin play in 2014.  “This is not just a second team in NJ,” stated Joe Newman, ABA CEO.  “This is a very special team with a very special owner and we are very excited to have Carl Anthony Walden as part of the ABA.  We could not have asked for a better team to
complement Marsha Blount’s Jersey Express, one of the two oldest teams in the ABA.”
The team will be a part of C3 Basketball Academy, a not-for-profit organization that works closely with many young men two have been lost to the system and mentors them to learn what it takes to be successful in life – on and off the court.  Under the leadership of Carl Anthony Walker, a young man who himself faced many challenges in his life having grown up in a DYFS Functional family for 15 years, he was the youngest AAU
basketball coach and AAU team owner at the age of 16.
The story only starts there.  Carl attended Baylor University where he received his BA in Business Administration and followed that up with a Masters Degree in Coaching Education and now owns his own record label.  The C3 Basketball Academy includes in its alumni Andrew Wiggins of the Kansas Jayhawks,
Kyle Anderson of the UCLA Bruins, Ed Rovcanin of the Hardwick Jayhawks, Roselle Catholic superstar
Isiah Brisco, Garfield High School superstar Ned Bakic and many more.  “I can be the voiceless,” stated Walden.  “I can and will make a difference – and I know that being a part of the ABA is going to help a lot of young men fulfill their dreams – on and off the court.  I am grateful for the opportunity.”  For more information ,
