Head Coach: Gary Ernst
Affiliation: AIA, Division 1, Section 3
Top Dog(s): Tommy Kuhse (6’1″, G, SR);
Sleeper: Daren Tingy (5’8″, G, SR);
Notes: The Toros may not have the high level Division 1 prospects that some of the other teams on this list have but there is no doubt that when it comes to playing the game “the right way” they’ve got just about everybody beat. Gary Ernst is a coach that puts his players in a position to succeed by giving them an offensive framework that will help develop their IQ’s and limit mistakes. Senior guard Tommy Kuhse is one of the best leaders and floor generals in the state. He makes everyone around him better and, with improved consistency on his jumper, he will be a load. He will be joined in the backcourt by Daren Tingy, a 5’8″ scrapper that is a pest on the defensive end. Mountain View has both size and versatility this season with 6’4″ Nick Sessions, 6’5″ Zane Jowaiszas, 6’7″ John Trendler, and 6’8″ Curtis Hodges (who has developed into one of the state’s top post defenders). There’s not much that this team can’t do. Add in the fact that they have a lot of experience together and play very, very hard and you have a great recipe for success.
