Blue Star Productions: About The Blue Star Report

The Blue Star Report is the longest running girls basketball information service in the country. Blue Star originated in 1981 as a series of All-American camps across the country and as an evaluation report and newsletter. As the game grew Blue Star Basketball grew with it and created the nation's first dedicated girls basketball website in 1996. Blue Star Basketball has been sponsored by Nike since 1998, and continues to support our grassroots efforts.
Blue Star has become one of the most influential groups in the girls basketball world. Mike Flynn started selecting high school All-America teams in 1976 with the first Coach Magazine team. A number of today's college coaches were on those first lists. He was the first girls basketball editor for USA Today when they started their newspaper in 1982 and has served either as the selection chair or as a committee member of various pretigious groups such as the Gatorade Player of the Year program, the McDonald's All-America team and Parade Magazine.
Mike is presently the women's college basketball contributing write for The Sporting News doing their pre-season College Top 20 and College pre-season All-Amerca teams and serves as a consultant for Nike Global Basketball.
In 2002 Blue Star added it's Rising Blue Star Camp series in two cities (Philadelphia & Chicago) to help find the top 7th, 8th, & incoming 9th grade talent across the country. These camps have now expaned to nine cites across the country during the months of August & September.
Blue Star Basketball has a total of four staff members on the McDonald's All-American committee. 2007 saw Blue Star Basketball unveil a staff of nearly 20 former college coaches as evaluators to help cover all corners of the country. Our team of evalutors is overseen by Chris Mennig, a former college coach and recruiter for eleven years.
