Josh Brothers is a player in the Maryland/Delaware area, I believe. He's fairly young, and apparently plays pretty strong.

Norm Wines won the Open event.

josh brothers plays in delaware...thats where he lives....he plays with jerry olivier's cues and he has won valley forge 18 and under, four years running.....one of my close friends....after winning, he approached olivier's table and was looking at one of his cues and they got to conversing and told him that he has won valley forge 4 years straight with his cue, and so jerry gave him a brand new $2000 cue, FREE....how strong is that?
p.s. he just turned 16.

Melissa, Bigfoot posted in an earlier thread that if Josh doesn't know he should be told that he can play in the BCA Junior Nationals this year:

"if you know Josh Brothers whereabouts, tell him that he will probably be able to play in the BCA Junior Nationals this year. Have him call John Lewis at the BCA to clarify. I am pretty sure there are no more GPA requirements and they are going to hold the Nationals at NIU in IL, probably two weeks after the BCA trade show. BF"

Maybe you could tell him. Ken in CT

Hi Ken... why on earth would the BCA have dropped the GPA requirements??

Thanks,

I don't know anything about it. Bigfoot posted that and didn't give any explanation. The Programs Director, John Lewis, is at 719-264-8300 and BF suggested calling him. Their website says the qualifiers are to be open to any amateur North American citizen who is the right age as of August 10. It could be Josh's last year to qualify.

Because all they are playing for now is a trophy and to see who gets an all expense paid trip to the WPA event, the BCA Board dropped the scholarship $$$ but did not supply the BCA program department a backup plan. Its still a nice trip, the BCA does have 4 spots to send, still a nice feather if you win it. BF

he knows, he goes every year, he won it in i think 2000 and 1999 don't quote me on that one but i know that he won it one of those years.......i think maybe when it was in canada........thats the only reason he plays the juniors in valley forge is to get the bid to the junior nationals, or else he would just play the amatuer open and in my opinion he has the ability to do very well if not win.......

Hi,
Josh is out of Delaware-true,age around 16, also plays on the Joss tour (when he can)-he's got the killer instinct and spends his time in the pool hall-watch for him-definitely up and coming-if anyone wants to get in touch with him, write to the "Queen of Mean" Karen Armstrong at Delawarebilliards.com-he grew up with her! He's pretty awesome ! What a cutey!:)

No Josh was unable to play in 2000 but he did show up. His biggest opponent is Shane McMinn and watch out for Tyler Strawn, he is one of the best young players at 14 to EVER represent USA in the WPA event. Last year he won two matches (race to 11) and got at least 8 or more games on all his opponents, just a kid. BF
