CRESTVIEW — Expectations were high for Crestview High School's Ronnie Baylark, even before he played his first basketball game as a freshman in November of 2010.

Then-Bulldog Coach Keith White predicted great things for his silky smooth shooting guard.

Baylark, now a senior playing point guard, has lived up to most of those expectations as he tries to savor his final high school season.

"It’s amazing how fast time went by," he said. "I just have to put my arms around it (the season), now that I’m a senior, and embrace my last year."

Learning new systems

Coaching changes have marked Baylark's high school career. Baylark played for White as a freshman and sophomore. Ken Meisner was the Bulldog coach last year. Greg Watson directs the team this year.

Baylark downplays how tough adapting to the different coaches has been.
