PREP BOYS' BASKETBALL: Ferndale preview


Coach: Scott Larrabee

Last year: 6-16 (3-10 NWC), elimi-nated in Class 3A Northwest District tournament.

Players to watch: Spencer Hannah (Jr., G), Max Hannah (Jr., G), Taylor Pothier (Jr., F), Jeff Frost (So., G/F), Brian Davison (Sr., P).

Outlook: Though Max Hannah is the only returning starter from last year, Casey Locker is expected to miss the season to have surgery and the varsity roster has only two sen-iors, the Golden Eagles have plenty of experience returning. All five players expected to start played at least 14 games and most played in more than 20 in Ferndale’s nine- to 10-player rotation from last year. Larrabee said he team not only has experience, but also size and athleti-cism. Spencer Hannah, who aver-aged 4.6 points per game, will lead the offense from the point, while Davision (2.7 points per game last year) will be the chief threat inside. Larrabee said his team will need to focus on defense to be successful this year. Ferndale should be im-proved and could be a threat to grab one of two Class 3A state berths from the Northwest District tourna-ment.
