Hoops Lions set for Rotary opener

Gilson's 2012-13 team is young, but hard working

(Continued)

LOCKPORT —

“Mitchell's a gritty point guard. He works hard on defense and he isn't afraid to go under the basket on offense and defense. Colin is a great outside shooter and sees the floor very well. He'll be a major part of our offense.
“Ryan's a very versatile person who can play under the basket, as well as go up top and shoot the basketball,” Gilson said. “He's got good footwork under the basket and good moves. He also worked hard in the offseason with weight conditioning and strength conditioning.”
Gilson described his other returning player, Townsend, as, “the hardest working kid I've had in 21 years of coaching.” Townsend was a sophomore starter a year ago and adds strength and immeasurable heart to a younger team.
“He's just your ideal kid to have on your team,” Gilson said. “Mo does anything you want him to do. He's not afraid to go underneath the basket with the taller centers.”
Rounding out the Lions' roster are seniors Khari Demos and Sam Volby; and juniors Gerald Baker, Daniel Bronson, Phil Crenshaw, Ryan Guyton, Javon Jenkins and Charlie Sobieraski.
Gilson said because International Prep is a Buffalo city school, there isn't a lot he knows about the team because he hasn't had a chance to see them play.
Among the top teams in the NFL this year will be Niagara Falls and Kenmore West, said Gilson, who will be assisted by Matt Stedman and Andrew Granchelli on the bench, along with manager Rob Johnston. The returning LHS JV coach is Dick Russell.
Lockport opens its league season a week from Friday, hosting Niagara-Wheatfield at 6:30 p.m.
