CRESTVIEW — Standing an athletic 6-foot-1, Kerrie York looks every bit the player she is for the Crestview girls basketball team.

York’s talent and potential haven’t been lost on first-year Bulldog basketball coach Kathy Combest, who previously coached York in volleyball.

“She can shoot the three and she can play the post,” Combest said. “What Kerrie does for us is she can go inside and she can go outside. She’s been a little weak in posting up.

“She’s working on that and she started out weak on blocking out. I’ve kind of convinced her that she is going to keep on being pushed around until she blocks out lower and gets a little more aggressive.”

York has the same problem as many other young players: she thinks too much, Combest said.

“Kerrie has a lot of heart,” Combest said. “When Kerrie slows down and doesn’t think about it, she’s got very good moves.
