Youth Will Be Served at Hundred
By BUBBA KAPRAL
HUNDRED — Youth is being served at Hundred this winter.
The Hornets feature just one underclassmen on their 14-player roster. Travis McCoy is a talented 6-5 junior letterman. He must provide the leadership this season as the balance of the squad is composed of freshmen and sophomores.
Graduation claimed 1,000-point scorer Danny Stewart as well as Devon Kimble, Tyler Norris and Charlie Matthews.
“We are a very young team with only one upperclassman, but the ones who are out want to be here and are working very hard,” Coach Virgil Wilkins said. “These younger kids look to have a lot of potential if they stay with it.”
Wilkins has two other returning letterwinners to build with in sophomores Cody Soles and Logan Norris. Both are 6-footers.
Aaron Stevens, a promising 5-9 sophomore, is in line to grab a starting spot at guard. Sophomores Cole Henderson (6-1) and Martin Baker (5-5) are waging a battle to gain a starting berth, as well as promising 5-5 freshman Skylar Goff.
Billy Lemasters, a 5-10 sophomore, is being counted on to deliver solid guard support off the bench.
Sophomore Eli Geho (5-11) will see quality varsity time while sophomore Cole Henderson (6-1) is a tenacious defender.
The balance of the roster consists of freshmen Lane Kolat (5-8), Brayden Cottrill (5-4), Illias Fox (5-11), Cole Miller (6-0) and Bobby Hostutler (5-10).
Wilkins is being assisted by Jeremy Kelch, who previously was the Hornets’ girls’ varsity head coach and present football assistant coach.
