Our seniors, Zach Callaghan, Will Trotter, Brandon Moncus, Franco Feria, Colby Heath, and Whit Moreman have already showed tremendous leadership in the early weeks of practice and have grown into extraordinary young men over the last 4 years. We are hungry to return to the state tournament after making a deep run 2 years ago, and as long as we focus on the process of getting better each day then we will have a successful year.

We have some young guys coming up that have been successful at the JV level. I expect our team to make it back to the state tournament and have a chance to advance if we can mesh together during the season.We will be a disciplined team that will try to run the court under control, Trip will be our first option on the offensive end and we will feed off of him." We have been very successful at Glenwood for the last 9 years. We have produced a lot of players at every level from NAIA, Juco, D2, D3, and D1. Names such as Will Coleman, Alex Hicks, Anthony Holtzclaw, Cody Pearcy, Scott Balkcum, Dalton Walker, Tanner Thomason, Mike Swann, Andres Rocha.We have made it to the state tournament all 8 years I have been the Head Coach. 2 State Championships, 2007 and 2013, 1 state runner up, 3 final 4's, 3 elite 8's

#CBHoopsJcJamATL Stock Riser : Artun Labinowicz

The CB Hoops Jamboree is always loaded with some great Junior College programs and Prep programs. Combine Academy out of North Carolina came to our ATL Event and played well against high level competition. If you want to play on the "Big Stage" of the Fall, the place to be is at our Juco Report Jamboree Series events. 6'4 Shooting Guard Artun Labinowicz went from unknown to every one blowing up Coach Mat Williamson cell phone after playing in ATL event. Willamson tells us that Labinowicz recruitment has sky rocketed with intrest from Mercer,Fordham,Illinois State ,Coastal Carolina, USC Upstate,Gardner Webb,FIU and Winthrop just to name a few on the guard out of Butler HS in Matthews,NC. We caught up with Coach Williamson about Artun " Art has always been an elite athlete with tons of potential. Art has came into the program with zero offers out of high school to a highly recruited prospect , which speaks volumes to his work ethic and him being determined to prove people wrong." Labinowicz recruitment has blown up overnight and that is exactly what the Jamborees are for,players getting exposure and having a chance to play at the next level. We look forward to watching this Combine Prep program in the near future and seeing which 4 year program lands Labinowicz.

#CBHoopsHSTeamPreview: Harris Co. (GA)

Last Season’s Record

Players from last season’s Team who moved on to 4 Year or 2 Year Level (Player/School)
Jalen Northern/LB Wallace CC

Top Returning Players with Stats and Recruitment & Links to Highlights
6'0" DJ Johnson (G/PG) 3.52 GPA 19 ACT
Complete guard with the ability to score and distribute. Has quick first step and blows by defender on penetration. Has good leaping ability and finishes well at the rim. Has a nice one-two pull-up jumper from the mid-range. Was named All-Region and All Bi-City as a Junior; looking forward to build off that and have a strong Senior campaign. He was also our POY, averaging 13 ppg, 3 ast, 5 reb, and 2 stl per game.

6'3" Jaylyn Richardson (G/PG/W/F) 2.56 GPA
He'll play in the post for us this upcoming year, as we have a very small team. Very active guard with quick second jump. Good ball handler with ability to get the rim and finish. Has a consistent outside jumper. This is the player to watch as he has gained full trust from a previous injury and should boast big numbers for our squad. As the 3rd or 4th option last year, he recorded 8 ppg, 5 reb, and 2 stl per game. I greatly expect that to rise as he takes on a #1 or #2 role.

6'4 Riquieto Leonard isn't a newcomer, but a returning sophomore that should get major minutes this upcoming year. He has the intangibles that coaches look for. All he needs is a little refinement in areas and he'll definitely be one the opposing team needs to put on radar.

Coach Sorrell Outlook on Upcoming Season
Harris Co returns this year after completing a major turnaround. After averaging 5 wins a season for quite some time, the Tigers were able to amount to 17 this past season along with its 1st playoff berth in over 10 years. Harris Co posted many 1st this past year: 1st ever win over Carver High School, 1st ever win against former region opponent Lee Co, 1st win against LaGrange High School since 2007, 1st time hosting a State playoff game, and most importantly 1st ever win against crosstown rival Manchester High School. The Tigers hope to build off off the past year's successes and use them to create new ones coming up.

Players from last season’s Team who moved on to 4 Year or 2 Year Level (Player/School)

Cornelius Lawhorn: Middle Georgia Prep

Top Returning Players with Stats and Recruitment & Links

Javion Johnson: 8 points and 8 rebounds. Tennessee Tech visited our campus to see him workout. He

has been on visits to Lincoln Memorial(D2), Shorter(D2), Clayton State(D2), Brewton Parker(NAIA 1),

Lee(NAIA 1). Have also been in contact with the majority of the JUCO's in the state regarding Javion.

Jaylon Golds: 10 points and 5 assists. Have spoken to several NAIA programs about Jaylon. Will be on a

visit at Brewton Parker(NAIA 1) next weekend.

Amari Colbert: 10 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists. Had an unofficial to The University of South Alabama in

August. Tennessee Tech visited our campus to see him workout in October. Lamar University has asked

for a visit. Have talked to over a handful of D2's.

DL Hall: 7 points, 4 assists. Top 10 baseball prospect in the class of 2017. Committed to Florida State


Kolbey Singleton: Tough as nails defender that will do whatever it takes to win the battle. Knock down

shooter with very athletic legs! Will be a big time player in our program this year after seeing amazing

growth this spring, summer, and fall.

Zion Johnson: Big time growth out of this 2017 PG. Has worked his tail off in the weight room to get

stronger and more athletic. Has also worked on his jump shot. Will be a guy we trust to take care of the

ball for us A LOT!!

Marquis Traylor: 6'4 transfer from Knob Noster High School in Missouri. Averaged 7 ppg, 7 rpg, and 1

rpg as a JR there. Will make a major impact on the defensive side of the ball for us this season.

Coach Walls on Upcoming Season

Last season, we made the playoffs for the 1st time since 2006. We only lost 3 seniors and returned 3 of

our top 4 scorers from last year. While always relying on our guards in the past, we will finally have

some size inside this year with the addition of 6'4 Marquis Traylor and 6'3 330 lb. Sophomore, Trey Hill

to go along with our Senior leader, Grant Sanders. This should be the most exciting team Houston

County has had in quite some time. With 2 preseason top 10 teams in our region and a January

matchup with Northside Columbus, we will know exactly what kind of team we are. We are not content

and hope to continue the trend of being a yearly playoff team!
