The honors keep coming in for the Mohigans. A record, four players made
all-state this season. Kameron Law completed his career as a second team
selection, junior Chris Carey landed a place on the AAA third team, and Ben
Torsney and Tyler Benson were on the honorable mention team. Our players
don't play for individual awards, but it is nice to be recognized. At most
schools these four players would have averaged more points per game and
would have been the single star of their team. This would have allowed them
more press, thus they would have all been first teamers. We know that they
are all as good as anyone in the state. All three of these seniors have been
offered scholarships to play in college and no doubt Chris will be offered
next season. We are proud that they played such good team ball and had a
23-2 record.
Tyler Benson has been busy playing AAU with the "East Coast AAU". He and
Kameron have been invited to play in the annual AAA vs. AA allstar game in
Beckley, next weekend. Tyler had to decline this invitation because he is
committed to a tournament in Washington D.C. Kameron will play in the game
which is scheduled to be played at the Raliegh County Armory next Saturday
evening at 8:00 p.m.
Coach Hoffman had a group of our sixth graders in Pittsburgh this past
weekend to play in a tournament, and ended up winning their pool. They later
lost in the semifinals. Getting these kids to play at a young age against
great competition really helps our players, develop. Coach Hoffman said that
this is going to be a good group of young players if they continue to work
at it. The Mountaineer Shootout will begin the weekend of April 17. Come out
and watch some exciting basketball. Until later....
Go Mohigans!
