Four seniors take the court for Georgetown varsity boys squad –

The Georgetown G-Men take the court this season with hopes of showing significant improvement coming off of last year’s three-win season.
The G-Men are led by their first-year head coach Doug Williams who is equipped with four seniors who hit the hardwood for their fourth year of high school hoops – forward Levi Burns, forward Chris Dietrick, guard Christian Linville, and guard Solomon Underwood.
Other key returners to the court for the G-Men are two Southern Buckeye Athletic/Academic Conference National Division all-stars from last season – junior Logan Doss and sophomore Noah Pack.
Junior guard Jonny Strickland is also back on the court after gaining a great deal of varsity experience last season.
Expect junior guard Luke Gast, sophomore forward Tanner Ellis and sophomore guard Cameron Brookbank to see a significant amount of varsity playing time this season after competing on Georgetown’s junior varsity team last year.
Other sophomores on this year’s Georgetown varsity roster include guard Emerson Cahall, guard Jackson Gregory, guard Kyle Cornette, forward Morgan Fleming, and forward Alex Bolington.
“I think this is a group that’s going to work hard,” Williams said of this year’s G-Men. “I’m pleasantly surprised by the kids and how willing they are to change what happened last year. Sometimes when you take over a program that was 3-19 the previous year you don’t really know how the kids are going to react the following year, but the tradition here at Georgetown is so rich that the kids have been around seen what it takes to be good. I think it was a fluke more than anything for Georgetown to be down that year. I think they understand what winning is and they want to get back there.”
After making the league’s all-star list last season, Doss and Pack are certainly names that teams and hoop fans throughout the league have become familiar with, but there are also some other talented players who can provide big contributions on the court for the G-Men this season.
“This group of kids has some skills,” said Williams. “I think we have two solid seniors to play point guard – Solomon Underwood and Christian Linville. Chris Dietrick is a great leader in the locker room and plays very hard. Cameron Brookbank has worked on his athletic ability. Logan Doss is a great athlete. I think Strickland is one of the best athletes in the league and he’s going to give us a lot of minues.”
“I’m happy with the senior leadership. We have a good group of seniors who show up every day,” Williams added.
While Williams felt this year’s G-Men are capable of some exceptional offensive play this season, team defense is something he would like improvement on.
“If we’re going to win the league championship we’re going to have to defend,” said Williams. “A league championship and sectional championship are obvious goals, but we must decide to go hard on a daily basis,” said Williams. “For us, our daily goal is to go as hard as we can.”
