the forwards has helped this team significantly."

this year, and its been really cool to watch!"
Coach Basanese: "There is no question
that without George, this season would've been different. He
brings a really positive attitude to our team, and his skills on the

distribution to Alex has really benefited both of them. I hope to
see George continue his career after high school, he's really helped
