Hungry Like A Hawk – Athens Hoopster Enters Hallowed Ground

By: Scott Burnstein, February 21, 2018, 10:00 am
Troy Athens boys basketball star Taylor McCaskill has been tearing up the hardwood going on four years now. Last week, the 6-foot-1 combo guard became only the second player in the history of Red Hawks hoops to eclipse the 1,000 point marker. In other words, BIG MAC is a BIG BALLER and SHOT CALLER with few equals in the BIG RED record books.
McCaskill is a doozy of a playmaker and a true leader. He possesses a satiny touch, tons of court savvy and a knack at coming through in the clutch. A four-year varsity letter winner, he’s a silent killer, whether on transition or in the half-court set. This season, he’s got Athens in the hunt for an OAA White title. The Red Hawks are 12-3 and looking mighty sharp.
Whichever college program ends up snatching McCaskill for its 2018 recruiting crop will be landing a genuine STUD. Expect BIG THINGS from BIG MAC at the next level!!
