During the middle of September I talked with Franklin High School Head Coach Jason Tigert. The first question was, “How good could Jack [Medalie] be this year?”
“I think he is going to make a big-time jump,” said Coach Tigert. “This summer he averaged a double-double, really rebounding the basketball. His defense has significantly improved. He is shooting the ball extremely well. He has really made gains on the defensive end. He could always score. But now he is really adding to that. He is a for sure double-double threat guy.”
“Kadrian (K.J.) Johnson was a point guard that was big like that. A big guard that could handle. Jack can handle, but he is not a point. Hunter Wolcott at Dickson. Kind of similar. I have been lucky to have some really good players. Matt Thurman. Kinda. He scores a little more than Matt. But Matt also had multiple guys around him that were also scoring the basketball.”
transferred this week from Battle Ground Academy to Franklin High. This movement is vitally important, as Franklin High needed some scoring punch and Brown is capable of scoring in bunches now and for years to come. He immediately joins (Hillsboro) as the best sophomore talents in the district. For this upcoming season Graham is likely going to be more statistically-dominating, but Brown’s long-term potential is scary for the district.
is an anticipated starter for John Overton. He transferred last winter from Pope Prep, formerly Pope John Paul II, to John Overton. Head Coach John Hopson sees him as an important piece for the Bobcats.
Alex Pierz is not a transfer in to Centennial High, but he is new to the basketball program. Pierz considers himself a football player, much more than basketball, but the team will benefit from his inclusion in the practices especially. A willingness to bump and bang is necessary for the undermanned team to compete favorably this year against the top of the district.
