The Highlanders return most of the core from last years district championship team. 3 starters are back, and key reserves from last year look to emerge in bigger roles this season. Length and athleticism will be a strength, with five players at 6'4" or above. The Highlanders will have multiple options on offense, and will look to score early and often in transition. With a commitment to defending and running the floor, LHP has a chance to make some noise in the playoffs.
Senior Victor Brown Jr. returns for his third straight year starting in the back court. He's a dynamic play maker, with the length and ability to play multiple positions.
Guard/wing Rock Swann looks to build on an impressive summer. The senior played sparingly last year coming off injury, but his opportunity will increase dramatically.
Point guard Jared Berry returns for his sophomore campaign. Berry started every game last year, and looks to improve on his 9 pts, 4 ast per game average.
Junior Gabe Ferguson returns to play center and forward. At 6'7" with a high motor, Gabe will be counted on to run the floor, rebound, and score inside. A much improved jump shot will allow Gabe to stretch defenses too.
Junior Miles Stewart isn't new to LHP, but his role will be. Last years reserve big has emerged this offseason into a true offensive threat. The 6'7" forward has range to the three point line, good feel as a passer, and can really run the floor.
Sophomore Brice Sensebaugh joined the LHP squad this summer. The 6'5" guard has elite shooting ability, and can score in a variety of ways.
Soph Elijah Quinones looks to make an impact in his first full year on varsity. The 6'2" do-it-all guard possesses great feel for the game and loves to pass the ball.
Freshman Sean Stewart will see time at guard and forward this season. The 6'6" Stewart already has a varsity frame and skill set. With experience look for the 9th grader to have an immediate impact for the Highlanders.
