Lebanon High School’s 8-1 start to the season has been a dream come true for many of the Warriors players. One particular player that has emerged as a leader for them has been senior Harrison Hookfin (2018). After using the summer to develop some of his skills, the skilled post player is now making a name for himself across the Dayton area as a top prospect to watch.
One year ago, Harrison was a 6’1” junior averaging 0.9 points per game with the Lebanon varsity. Now, he is averaging 15.4 points and 8 rebounds per game. Harrison credits this jump to a hard working summer session.
“I felt like I was in the best shape of my life…I gained a lot of confidence from the scrimmages and camps over the summer”.
Not only this, but Harrison also grew from 6’1” to 6’5” making him move to the 4 and 5 spot on the floor. From there, he has continued to impress and dominate as he has scored 20+ points in 6 of his 9 games thus far this year. Although Harrison is a strong presence in the paint, he wants to improve on his decision making skills as the season progresses.
Hookfin has big goals for the Warriors, starting with winning as many games as possible. Not only this, but he also wishes to finish 1st Team all-GWOC. This shouldn’t be hard as the numbers put up so far are bound to continue. As for his recruitment, Harrison has received some interest from Wilmington College but besides them, is currently uncommitted. As the season progresses, I expect Harrison to continue to accrue interest from other schools, especially at the D3 level.
