Posted On: 02/12/18 12:17 PM

Josiah Strong, a recent Navy commit, had 36 points against #6AAAA Park Center in an 86-81 win on Feb. 2. He was nominated for Northstar Weekly Honors the next week, and his community provided him with more than 3,400 votes to help seal the award. Thanks again to our sponsors at Intensive Basketball Camps.

Strong on the win over Park Center:

“Beating them was a huge win for us, kind of a turning point in winning a close, big game like that. I felt great afterwards, especially beating our biggest rival at their place. Shots were just falling and my teammates trusted me to score, so it was a good feeling.”

Strong on his future at Navy:

“(Instead of going to the Naval prep school first,) I’m going straight in. It’s a great school, and there’s an opportunity to play right away. Also, it benefits my future tremendously and the coaching staff and I have a good relationship.”

Champlin Park has won 12 of its last 14 games, including seven straight.
