All LLhoops Team: Section 2 1999-00
Point : Ted Search (CV) 6’2″ Sn. Avg 14ppg …steady, and can take over a game quietly if you aren’t careful. Must prepare to stop him when preparing for CV.
2 guard : Bryan Boyd (LS) 6′ Sn. Avg. 19 ppg … very smart. Knows and understands the game. Pure shooter, has also developed nice dribble move. Also rebounds when necessary. Led the Pioneers to the PIAA State play-offs.
& Curtis Waltman (Garden Spot) 6′ Jn Avg. 27 ppg… Ok, so we can’t make up our minds again. Tough to go against this guy. A scoring machine! The junior guard already has over 1,000 points and led the Spartans to back to back Section 2 unbeaten titles.
Small forward : Mike Snader (Garden Spot) 6’1″ Sn. Avg 15 ppg ... Most underrated, under appreciated player in section 2. Can kill you on boards. Can kill you outside. Good all around skills. Silent assassin. Can run the floor. Consistent. Versatile. Always seemed to make the big play, and the right play. NEVER hurts his own team. Kept unbeaten section 2 streak alive with tip in against Central at the buzzer.
Power Forward : Ben Fields (LMHS.) 6’3″ Sn. Avg 19 ppg...Ben was a transfer from Penn Manor. Led the Blazers in scoring. Could score inside and outside. Sored his 1,000 point this season.
Center: JD Benson (lebanon) 6’4″ Sn. Avg 14 ppg … This kid is an ATHLETE !!! … Active, but inconsistent. Quality kid with easy going demeanor. Receives a lot of cheap shots, but never reacts. Jumper. Must account for him inside and all the break. Best dunker in the league.
Very honorable mention :
Phil Haas (etwon) …came on strong at end of year. athletic. more of a scorer than shooter. quality kid.
John Carcoski (cocalico) …strong, but could be even stronger. big body. moves well. 10-15 ft range. big inside. athletic. smooth stroke for a big kid
Jack Kenneff (MC) … lefty. scorer. central had too many weapons for this kid to be truly appreciated.
Robby Okanak (leb) … solid with the ball. runs the show. plays D like all lebanon pt. guards can.
Dustin Salisbury (LS) … may already be best athlete in section. blessed with ability. if work ethic ever catches up with ability … look out (D1 potential)
Andy Maines (lanc menn) … if this kid stays eligible and out of trouble, mennonite is a force. very athletic. slasher. score. not much of a consistent jumper but he can hit, and will shoot it. strong on D.
Ryan Trupe, (GS) … may be best ball hawking, defensive point guard in our section. allows waltman to focus on offense, and also cherry pick and leak out for cheapies.
