The Omaha South Packers opened their season on December 6th with a 71-58 win against the Benson Bunnies. They returned to the hardwood less than 24 hours later and suffered a 1-point loss to Omaha North, 54-55. Prior to these games, I was able to observe the returning state champs at the Iowa West Field House on Thursday and Friday in preparation for their weekend contests. These are the players that will be important in Omaha South’s efforts to defend their state title.

Tyrece Griggs – 6’0 Guard – Class of 2020

Ty Griggs is a strong, athletic, and versatile wing that was monumental in the success of Omaha South last season. Griggs can guard multiple positions, rebound and score.
