Player Reviews 11-20
This Patriot can really shoot the rock. Ericsson is a lefty and he is a great shooter with a smooth jump shot. Sam is a talented player with a bright future. Everyone likes shooters!
He will play a role on the varsity this year and Hamlin will be very tough! This young Charger can really shoot the ball and impact the game with his jumper. Jackson is a tough kid that plays really hard. Wadsworth is a nice athlete and a two-way player.
Had a great AAU season and he plays for an excellent high school program that always wins. Mebius is an pesky on-ball defender and a grinder. He guards all over the court! Mebius is a very mobile athlete. Logan is selfless and he will do whatever the team needs from him. He is also an impressive athlete and a STAR runner in Track.
He is an aggressive guard and a playmaker. Shane is a freak athlete. He handles it well and he makes a ton of positive things happen on the court. Veenhof is an exciting player that you will want to keep eyes on.
The Harrisburg program is loaded with talent and Jibben is another player to add to that list! Crayton is a super-skilled player with a ton of potential. He also shoots it very well. Expect a high-quality school season from Mr. Jibben.
He certainly has a basketball lineage. Goodbary is an impressive shooter with good-looking form. Cooper is a skilled player on the offensive side and he is a tough defender.
He is a skilled Cardinal with tight handles. Hanson has a high hoops IQ and his jump shot has really improved in the past year. Trimmier will have the chance to get varsity minutes this year as a 9th-grader. This kid is going to be a big time player!
You have to love his length/size. He is aggressive on the glass and is not afraid to fight for the ball. When I have watched him, Bergan shared the ball. It is always fun to see a post that moves the rock. The Golden Eagles have to be excited about his potential!
This Tiger is extremely talented! Cole can slash and score for buckets, he also shoots it well from the perimeter. Kooiker plays hard, shares the ball and he competes hard on both ends of the floor.
This young Tornado saw varsity action as an 8th grader and averaged 4 ppg & 4 rpg. Look for Alec to be a serious player this season. He is very coachable and he plays his heart out. Alec is advanced skill wise for his age and he will only improve. It is going to be a fun winter for Austin & the Tornadoes.
