It was the night before a big game and all through the sites, scouts are sleeping on players, not realizing they’re tight. Not a good size or a little short on the height, these players seek out to prove to colleges that they are just right. Hoopers that can ball, whether its the spring, summer, winter or fall, when it comes to gyms, they can play in them all. From seniors trying and ready to prove a point, to sophomores trying and ready to blow the roof off the joint.  Youngsters that can make it far with practice and prayer, let’s take a look at the Licking County League sleeper players.

A football standout as well, Lusk converts his football skill to the court with his speed and toughness on the hardwood. As part of the best back court in the Licking County League, the Navy-bound Lusk is one of the best shooters in the league.
