Mason Venable is looking forward to his first season at Mt. Bethel Christian Academy (GA) for the 2017-2018 season! The powerhouse program went 25-4 last season, going undefeated (11-0) in region play & winning the 2017 GICAA AA-I State Championship. Mason brings that hard-nosed competitive spirit to the already top-notch program. The 6’3 forward has good athleticism and the ability to block shots. Venable plays much bigger than his height may suggest and uses his physical toughness to compete against taller & bigger players. He is a great teammate and willing to do whatever it takes for his team to win games. Venable plays AAU with the Georgia Kings.
Mason has the potential to be a valuable asset to a college team for various reasons. First, Mason does all the intangibles that may not show up in a box score. The hustle plays that win games & championships, that often go overlooked, Venable thrives in those situations. Also, Venable continues to grow and develop his overall game. The #PROMovement staff believe he will evolve into a very good prospect for college coaches over these next two years. Venable is a high character player that takes his academics very serious. Currently, earning a 3.5 GPA through his first two years of high school. Venable plans to study Criminal Justice in college.
