Crossroads Charter Academy’s Britton Angell senior hooper has been hard at work preparing for the upcoming basketball season. The 6’4 combo guard scored his 1,000th career point last season. He is a team player and will pass to the open man, rather than force a shot. A combo guard, with strong on ball and off ball defense. His handles and full court vision allow him to contol the flow of the game. He has a scorer’s mentality and who once scored 53 points in a game.
He has offers from Calvin College, Lawrence Tech, Concordia, Alama and Spring Arbor. Look for bigger schools to take a look at Britton this season. Angell is a strong defender, who not afraid to take chances on both ends of the floor. He is aggressive and athletic with quick hands and feet to recover. A Left-hander who can knock down threes and finish above the rim.
“We’ve had some pretty great basketball players come through the program over the years,” CCA coach Jason Kostecki said. “But Britton is a special talent. He works on his craft and takes his game seriously. He works on it 365 days a year and is always texting me to get in the gym. “He’s easy to coach because he’s always wanting to get better.”
“My leadership is definitely a strength,” Angell said. “Along with playing point guard and orchestrating the offense. I’m good at reading passes and getting steals off tips. I’d like to improve on my strength so I’m stronger with the ball and can guard bigger players. It never hurts to improve on 3-pointer shooting, either.”
The Cougars had a disappointing 2017-18 season, compiling a 7-15 (3-11) record in the West Michigan ‘D’ League. This season looks promising as the young Cougars will benefit from a year’s experience.
