Anyone who’s ever watched Hudson Mayes play can’t overcome the feeling of watching a throwback player. His coaches have described him as “an old soul” repeatedly. But who is this talented 15-year-old sophomore at Redondo Union High in Redondo Beach, CA, who’s believed to be the next great asset to the Division I program? No other than Hall of Fame legend Roger Brown, the ABA Pacers all-star’s, grandson!

Hudson Mayes was raised with the idea of becoming a great basketball player. The boy surely has talent, too. In an age where the midrange shot has almost disappeared from the court, the boy openly includes it in his style. Among other things, that’s what makes his style look so old-school.

In an interview, he said he was expected to make it big on the basketball court. After all, he’s the grandson of Roger Brown, often referred to as the greatest Pacer of all time. So far, he’s been filling the shoes of the legendary Hall of Famer just right. He takes charge, always goes for the extra pass, and puts his heart and soul into the team.

Husdon Mayes was born ten years after the greatest Pacer passed away. Yet, the resemblance in the young boy’s style with that of his legendary grandfather is uncanny. Roger Brown caught the eye of the Pacers in 1967, back when the team played in a then-brand-new league called the American Basketball Association.

He was one of the first players to join the team, eventually leading it to success more than once. Back in his prime, Brown could easily beat two players. He was very self-conscious and had the same energy his grandson exhibits on the court today.

Roger Brown was inaugurated into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013. So, his young grandson is expected to become just as famous for a reason. Watching his game, we can say he’s off to an amazing start.

David Beckham’s son, Romeo, has agreed to play on loan for a Premier League reserve team from Inter Miami II. The 20-year-old is a right winger, like his father. He joined Fort Lauderdale CF in 2021, a year before it was renamed Inter Miami II. In the preseason friendly against Barcelona in July last year, Romeo played six minutes for Inter Miami’s first team. He is currently on loan from the team to play in England until June 2023.

Inter Miami CF II announced in a blog post on the club’s website that Romeo Beckham has joined Brentford B on a six-month loan. Up until June 2023, the winger will play for the English Premier League club’s reserve team.

After the club completed its signing, Brentford FC in West London announced that he would be playing for the B team. In response to the transaction, Romeo’s current performance has been praised by Brentforford B head coach Neil MacFarlane, saying that Romeo has been an absolute joy for them ever since they joined the club. To work with them during their offseason, Romeo came to them from Inter Miami and he put in an unbelievable amount of effort. He has fully embraced the culture he has grown to be an integral part of. The head coach also says that he admires his standards and the way he acts both on and off the field.

Very Technical, Like His Father

According to MacFarlane, David Beckham’s son is very technical and somebody who can cross and shift the ball quickly. He thinks that Romeo can play a variety of positions for them, which is also pleasing. The fact that Inter Miami asked them to work with him and placed their trust in them to help Romeo develop is a true testament to Brentford B.

Romeo even posted a photo of himself and David Beckham holding up his new kit on Instagram. He wrote that it was an exciting start to the year, and he was looking forward to the challenge.
