Update from 11/9/15 by Alex Conover

It was clear from the first time we saw Osseo’s Damario Armstrong play basketball: he’s a superb athlete whose future very well might be in another sport.

Now, as he preps with Osseo for Friday’s state championship football game, it’s even more evident. He’s leading the Orioles with nearly 300 yards receiving in the playoffs, and he’s also racked up 18 tackles on defense. He recently visited powerhouse NDSU, and he’s getting interest from South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and Western Illinois as well.

As hard as it is to look past Friday’s monumental opportunity, NHR spoke with Damario a bit on the upcoming hoops season.

“We'll be nice,” he said. “We got a lot of slept on talent, and we have strong guard play, so I feel like that should really open things up for us. This year our defense is a main objective; we take pride in our defense and just playing together everything should increase our chemistry. We just play team ball, that's all.”

Damario says his basketball recruiting has been a bit slow, but he’s looking to get things going this season, as he has not picked a favorite sport yet.
