Strout just played in a huge invite only tournament in Kansas, with some of the top players from all grades in the country and performed well from what I heard. People thinking this kid is just another player are going to be shocked, as I look at the schedule, I’m not sure the Arrows won’t have the two best players on the floor in most games, most teams have one guy but not another. I can’t think of one other 6’4 point guard in either league this year with a long wingspan again I’m not saying he’s D1 because he’s only a freshman but he’s the best point guard in the league no doubt in my mind.
He's going to be a special player, there's no doubt about that. It's going to be a fun next 4 years at Preble Shawnee.
 
I was at the JV football game yesterday and the Strout kid came up in discussion. Someone said he is 16 and will be 17 in May. Is that true?

Not true he’s 15 and will be 16 in May. People think that because he played up two years in Dayton Metro basketball and was dominant, he did get held back in 6th grade and went to Twin Valley South for one year.

As a TVS guy, I got a little excited when he moved to TVS to re-do his 6th grade year. That was short lived as he continued to play Metro basketball for Preble Shawnee that year, lol....

Speaking of the JV game I was told that WOAC the conference Shawnee is moving to will have JV on Monday’s at 6. And I think it’s a great idea. Maybe more people will go to those games.

I hadn't heard that yet, but I don't mind that idea. Maybe that will allow for each kid to allow more family members to attend?

Arrows football is over, time to talk round ball, I know we have scrimmages against Greenon, Bellbrook, and Brookville starts Nov 5th which seems close to me.

That is 2 weeks from today, that is very close. I actually can't believe it's that close. Does Preble Shawnee have basketball stuff going on already? I'm not sure what's allowed with the fall sports getting shut down. It seems like they would need to start practicing soon. The crazy thing is that's not even a week after when the season was supposed to end. Regardless, I'm looking for to basketball season.

Open gyms is all but not even that for two weeks with this Covid stuff I don’t think it’s to hard for coach to figure out his team this year maybe a 7/8 man rotation and that’s being nice. I’ve heard Singleton won’t play if football gets a game that last week and don’t really blame him.

MU has a certain Soph back this year.
It’s going to be interesting, I know you talk up Milton and they do have a pretty good football program but the basketball program I just haven’t seen enough out of them. I know they had a couple tournament wins last year but believe they moved up to D2 in basketball this year which is a complete different animal, they finished tied for 4th last year and had a decent senior class, not saying they won’t be good just going to have to prove they can beat better teams in the league. Not putting anyone down but Shawnee’s starting 5 doesn’t have anyone under 6’1 , a 6’4 point guard and a 6’3 wing that could be the player of the year. I’m not sure the sophomore is tall enough to guard Shawnee’s Freshman, this isn’t just someone blowing smoke about him he’s a top 5 player in this league not just the Buckeye, add that with another top five player for Shawnee and things should get fun. Might sound like a homer but just my opinion. The sophomore from Milton can play just don’t think he has the same help he had last year.
 
I'm not saying he isn't a top 5 player, but you are saying he is a top 5 player in the league on both sides. So, who are your top 5 players in the league as a whole?

let’s think about this top players in the Buckeye will go in no order
1. Singleton/Shawnee
2. Burney/Carlisle
3. Todd/Waynesville
4. Shrout/Shawnee
5. Evans/Northridge
Southwest I’ll be honest I don’t follow that closely but here’s how I would go
1. Maxwell/Oakwood
2. Eller/Brookville
3. Rich/Franklin
4. Pavlak/Bellbrook
5. Lattimore/Franklin
So my top 5 in the league would look like no order

1. Singleton/Shawnee
2. Burney/Carlisle
3. Eller/Brookville
4. Rich/Franklin
5. Shrout/ Shawnee
Again just my opinion love to hear others opinions.
