On February 17, 2023, Black Cager Sports Media announced the resignation of Executive Director Delgreco K. Wilson. Mr. Wilson has served as Executive Director for Black Cager Sports Media since September 1, 2013. He will continue to serve as as a part-time Sports Columnist Emeritus and contribute original content occasionally. However, he is leaving Black Cager Sports to work full-time as Executive Director of Vocational Programming for Dreamchasers Community Services, LLC. Founded by Marco Morcos, CEO in 2014, Dreamchasers Community Services is a statewide (NJ) licensed mental/behavioral health, and vocational rehabilitation organization serving youth ages 3-21. Dreamchasers is the fastest growing provider of Mental/Behavioral Health Services and Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) in the state of New Jersey.
Announcing his resignation, Mr. Wilson stated, “It has been an amazing experience these last ten years – Black Cager Sports accomplished so much. We have been able to provide much needed exposure for talented high school and college student-athletes in the mid-Atlantic region. I am very proud of the original content Black Cager has produced and the connections we have forged for young people and heir families. I spend a lot of time traveling to different college campuses to watch the fruits of our labor shine on the court. I will be forever grateful for the chance to form and lead Black Cager Sports Media.”
In light of Wilson’s resignation, two senior positions have been created. James Nelson-Stewart has been named Director of Creative Content and Stephen Alford has been named Director of Black Cager Basketball Scouting Service. Wilson noted, “I have worked closely with Nelson-Stewart and Alford for years. Their values are closely aligned with Black Cager Sports mission. Nelson-Stewart is a gifted writer and sports storyteller. I look forward to seeing what direction he takes as he assumes full control of basketball coverage. I am confident that he will provide readers with incisive and well-informed content.”
“Stephen Alford has been a God-send for scholastic basketball players, boys and girls, in the Greater Philadelphia region. His network of small college (D2, D3 and NAIA) coaching connections is unmatched. He consistently gets it done when few others can. Alford helps kids find scholarship… I have worked closely with him for more than five years. I am extremely pleased that he will be leading Black Cager Scouting Service.”
Wilson states, “The same question keeps driving me: What am I willing to stand for? That question has followed me throughout my professional career… Helping young people successfully transition to adulthood is a problem I have chosen to address. For nearly 30 years, helping student-athletes transition to college has made me feel energized, connected, and stimulated. After much prayer and careful consideration, I have decided to follow my intuition and help non-athletes, learning disabled students and justice involved youth navigate the transition to independent adulthood. For me, the great reward is the feeling of lasting contentment and self-respect that comes when I am living out the truth of who I am. I thank God that Marco Morcos and Dreamchasers Community Services have provided me with an opportunity to help thousands of deserving youth throughout the state of New Jersey.”
