Kerrie York, the heart of a Bulldog

As for York’s basketball future, York can play college basketball if that’s what she wants to do, Combest said.

“If she could go to a program that didn’t need her right away and season her up and maybe redshirt her and get some meat on her, I think she could play,” Combest said. “She shoots the ball well and she thinks well. She’s just got to be taught a lot of things that she has to learn because she didn’t play a lot last year.

“All she needs to do is play some more. She needs that year playing with somebody and getting stronger. It’s not going to take long because she works so hard.”

As the final half of her senior basketball season gets ready to start, York seems satisfied with her surroundings in school, with her teammates and her coach.

“I couldn’t ask for anyone else better to play with,” she said. “We all bond and we are pretty close. I’ve had the best experience with them playing the sport.”

And how does York want to be remembered by her teammates, coaches and teachers?

“I just want to be remembered as a hard worker and that I didn’t give up,” she said. “I want them to remember that I was giving my all every time.”
