Cameron Reddish has waited three years for this: the opportunity to be the main man on his high school team. It shouldn't matter that much because Reddish is already on the path to greatness.

He’s generally regarded as one of the three best players in the senior class, but, being on such a great high school team for the last two years, he took somewhat of a back seat. 7-foot center Mo Bamba (Texas) and Brandon Randolph (Arizona) both took much of the attention, as the Moose won its first two Pennsylvania...

Carroll has been a major player in the league and has a great young junior in A. J. Hoggard, as well as senior Justin Anderson and Keyon Butler. “I...

The Cahillites are one of many teams fans will have an eye on this year vying for a title. “Our team’s goal for this season is to win everything,” said sophomore point guard Lynn Greer III. “We don’t appreciate losing at all, we work too hard to...

But his next goal, number 27, in the second overtime of a scoreless tie that advanced Harriton to the next round of the districts will be one remembered by the hundreds in attendance for...
