As a near six-foot guard last year Adam Erickson helped Harrisburg to a 19-6 season playing both guard spots for the Tigers.
Erickson spent his off-season playing with BBA Force improving his game competing with several Harrisburg teammates and other quality players from the area. At several of the games was Briar Cliff who offered BBA/Harrisburg teammate Nick Hoyt (now committed to Briar Cliff) as well as Erickson recently.
A year ago Erickson was in support on the bench plus he played some junior varsity contests as the Tigers were a deep team with a fantastic senior group. Erickson had a number of 20 plus point games on JV and played an intelligent role for varsity in his bench minutes.
Seven seniors from Harrisburg must be replaced but the cupboard isn’t empty. Erickson now has a turn to step into a varsity role along with Hoyt, Blair Slaughter, and several others that will make the recently graduated seniors proud.
What you also need to know about the Harrisburg crew is that these are basketball guys. Not football, nobody running cross country or playing golf, the Tigers are a basketball cultured unit that continues to train and compete in some way around the year.
