Expectations high for Laurel Hill boys

"We are two deep in every position."

Zessin said eight players will make up the bulk of the Hobo playing rotation. Five of the players are capable of playing multiple positions. Some of the Hoboes can play all five positions on the floor.

Standing 6-foot-6 senior Lane Strickland is the only true post player on the team. But thanks to Laurel Hill's fast-paced style of play the Hoboes don't miss a beat when Strickland needs a breather.

Tee Calloway is capable of playing multiple positions and can just as easily score driving the lane as he can popping out to hit a 3-point shot.

Chris Saylor came off the bench against Central and scored 11 points while playing the hardnosed defense Zessin asked of his team.

What was expected to be a strong Hobo team got stronger when senior point guard Josh Hartzog transferred in from Baker.

"I've seen Josh play in the past and he fits in real good with this team," Zessin said. "He distributes the ball well to the open player. He controls the pace for us.
