With the 2018-19 school year and basketball season coming to an end, Fort Scott Community College Head Men’s basketball coach Michael Cook is excited about seven freshmen returning for their sophomore season. All seven of the freshman have started at least one or more times and will be a nice mix of talent and experience to go along with the incoming freshman.
The returners will be Kannon Jones, who started at point guard every game and was ranked second in the conference in assists, Craig Jordan who was named second team all-conference and second team all-region, Vinny Barron who missed the first part of the season with a broken finger will return at full strength after starting part-time the last part of the season, Evan Mitchell will be coming back after sitting out the second semester with a broken foot, Kevin Shead and Jesse Lawrence had a solid season after adjusting to the speed of the college game and made contributions toward the final push in conference. Also, coming back after redshirting this season is Dontrell Sanders, Sanders started every game for the Greyhounds the 17-18 season averaging 10 points and 8 rebounds.
“First let me say that I am excited about all seven of these young men returning to play basketball at FSCC, but more importantly they are all on track to graduate on time. Having this many returners will give us great leadership for the incoming freshman and also give us experience for a solid conference push towards the end of the year, FSCC Head Coach Michael Cook said.
