Huge difference between 8th and Varsity basketball. If you are gonna make the transition then guard is where you can because they can't be as physical with you out front.
Also playing on a good team or on a bad and having the confidence from the coaching staff to play means alot.
Lyntz has done well.
Montgomery could be thrown into a similar role next year with Crank. Montgomery is athleticly on another level from those guarding him this year. That will not be the case going forward but he is skilled enough to play

The Webster kid is skilled and has the length, but isn't ready for varsity unless he gets much stronger.

I think the league will look similar to the following next year:
1 Waverly should be the best team next year
2A Valley returns the entire team
2B West returns Dixon, Coleman, Sissel, Davis and a good JV
4A Wheelersburg with Swords and Sanderlin
4B Minford with Crank and Zimmerman
6. South Webster
7. Oak Hill
8A. Eastern
8B. Northwest

IMO, Montgomery will play varsity next year, he absolutely dominated the jr high level. I could also see Shoemaker playing varsity, especially if he continues to get stronger.

There is no way Robert's doesn't play varsity for Webster. This will be the first time that he wont be expected to do everything for his team, and it should help out his game

Roberts is a 100% lock to start next year. Half court range and I’m thinking he’s going to be close to 6’6? Idk how y’all he is this season haven’t seen him in person since last year. If he bodies up he’ll be a threat in any gym. If he doesn’t, well we still need help. Playing with TZ next season will elevate his game to the next level.

Here’s to hoping SW takes basketball serious again at some point this decade. We’re gonna have the horses to compete unless we get poached

Get poached? surely no one would take SW's best player again... good thing some of the other players have deep roots in websterville.

SOC I junior high champs (8th grade): Notre Dame (undefeated). Dominated Symmes Valley in championship game. Real solid backcourt, will be tough out in D4 next few years. SOC I talent level really down overall at junior high level other than ND.

ND 7th grade boys also went undefeated this year, but no tourney.*

Good deal. Congrats to the Titans.

Stranger things have happened.
Like more than a few good basketballers leaving OR electing not to play after playing a ton of varsity the year before.

That's not good, especially at a small school. Hope they keep kids and get some back.
