Double trouble Calloway style

“Last year, it felt good because there were all three of us on the court and we communicated good,” he said. “And we worked together as a team. This year, it’s still the same, but not like it was last year because there are only two of us.”

Longtime Hobo assistant coach Ronnie Smith praised the Calloways as players and students.

“They are tremendous young men,” he said. “They are leaders in the school. Travon was Homecoming King, which means they’ve got the respect of their peers, and Tommy won the Homecoming King (title) this year.

“And it wouldn’t surprise me if Tamaria did (next year), which goes to show how respected they are and well liked in the school. Both guys come to school and do things the right way. They are a pleasure to be around every day.

 The Calloways bring multiple skill sets to the court, Smith said.

“Both of them take great pride in their defense and they are pretty good offensive players too,” he said. “Tamaria plays point guard and Tommy plays the shooting guard for us. They are, I would say, 30 or 40 percent of our offense on any given night. They are very important to our basketball team.

“They work hard for their team. They come out here and give it a good day’s work every day unless they are sick or hurt. They are a pleasure to be around and those kind of guys are needed on a basketball team.”
