De La Heart, Hoop & Soul – Pilot Baller Name Check
Warren De La Salle is Burney’s SUPERSONIC SLEEPER SPECIAL in boys basketball this winter. There’s so much talk about the all-mighty Detroit UD-Jesuit Cubbies coming out of the Catholic League, people seem to be overlooking Team ESLER & the Pilots’ still-extremely-formidable cage brigade.
Alright, let’s roll call it (some DLS hoopers that have caught Burney’s eyes so far) :
Kevin McKay – Dynamo on the wing, explosive going to the rack, athletic, intelligent, maybe the most underrated player in the whole state!!
Jack Ballantyne – Priceless post prowler, righteous rim protector, walking-talking double-double,
Justin Fischer – Fast-rising floor general with a masterful handle, natural court instinct and vision and coach-on-the-court reliability
Quinton “Q” Glaspie – The Total X-FACTOR!! Does everything well, high motor, finishing ability, fearless attitude, gritty defender on the wing
Luke Pfromm – The player most likely to be TAKING IT NEXT LEVEL by March Madness time….Remember, you heard it here first!!
Josh Valliencourt – Straight BOMBER!! Aka STRAIGHT GUNNER aka out-of-nowhere ELITE 3-point assassin
Colin Roach – The ultimate “glue guy” and senior leader out of the backcourt
