Since former Franklin up-and-comer Lamont Sanders transferred to Dulaney last year, he has yet to play a game with the Lions.
After reclassifying and sitting last season out, Sanders will be back in action this season as a 2017.
The 6-foot point guard has been able to sharpen his skills while playing with Baltimore Elite, and has been able to pick up some initial college interest because of his offseason exposure.
“I was invited to Howard University’s elite camp, and Mount St. Mary’s elite camp – I talked with one of the coaches from Mount St. Mary’s. And then I’ve received a letter from Holy Cross too,” said Sanders, who mentioned he feels a bit under-recruited right now.
“I think I’m under the radar a little bit, and this junior year is going to be a big year for me. I’m looking to surprise a lot of people.”
While spending his spring and summer with Baltimore Elite, Sanders mentioned to PHM that his general point guard skills improved greatly — in particular getting his teammates involved.
“I became more of an all-around point guard, I was leading the team, going when I need to go. And my coach (Coach Corbett) helped me with that, and helped me excel at being an all-around point guard,” said the 6-foot point guard.
Sanders added: “I really love to score and that’s where I think Coach Corbett from Baltimore Elite helped me a lot, because I can’t always just be a scorer, I got to get my teammates involved too. I would say I definitely became a better passer over the summer.”
“I need to work on becoming more vocal, that’s the one thing I need to improve.”
After sitting out all last winter, Sanders is eager to get back on the floor — this time with Dulaney.
“Our goal is to get past the semifinals this year,” he said. “And for me I want to make all-team first country for Baltimore County.”
