Bobby Lehman - Sr.

Jake Bolyard - Soph.

My thoughts? I think Zach Wasson had just as good of a season as either of our All-Ohioans, and deserved at least Special Mention All-Ohio, if not Honorable Mention.
His selection to OCC 1st team gives his performance this season all the credibility it needs. I'm sure his day is coming, but it shouldn't matter what grade he or any other player is in, all that matters should be your on-court performance.

Honestly, I don't think this surprised a lot of people. Same old....

I agree, RedRider1!

Wasson deserved more than that. It doesn't matter what class you are in, the results are the bottom line, baby!

I joked with him today about where he is going to move to this week. He laughed and insists that all that stuff is untrue.

And, just to make a test post to check my account status, I would add...............how about Bobby Lehman's performance in the Berkey All-Star game?

Maybe he could have pumped some more 3's during the season?

Congrats to all of these kids...I know there are quite a few in Orrville that do not prefer the current basketball coaching staff and would have liked Bates to stay in town, but one just has to believe it will get better. There are a lot of good kids coming up from the junior/middle school. Hopefully, Orrville basketball will become exciting again...The games I attended this year were pitiful talking about the fan involvement and sometimes the play on the court...
