Getting to know Boys Basketball Star Maurice Works ‘18 Tech Boston (VIDEO)
Maurice Works '18 of Tech Boston Academy has made a name for himself with his chase down blocks and explosive athletic ability. This season, Works returned from the Prep School ranks, back to his home city of Boston, and helped lead Tech Boston to a Division 2 State Championship.
From High school to AAU, Works has proven himself to be a hard worker and serious problem for opposing teams on both ends of the floor.
Works' skillset complemented the talented State Champion Tech Boston squad perfectly this year, as his ability to make his teammates better and score when needed, made him one of the most well-rounded guards in the state.
