Eagles Hope for Tourney Rematch

Milford Eagles 7th Grade Team

The Milford Eagles’ 7th grade team was humming along at 8-0 until they ran into an undefeated King Jr. High last week in FAVC conference play. Despite possessing a 1 point lead late in the contest, the Knights went on a 16-4 run, before eventually claiming a 10 point victory over a now 8-1 Eagles.

With the loss, the Kings are the clear favorite to claim the regular season crown. “With their schedule, they [Knights] won’t lose a game the rest of the season,” said Eagles’ Head Coach Jim Campbell. Despite their loss to the Knights, Campbell expects his team to finish no worse than top 3 in the league, and he is confident his squad can win the league tournament. “Our goal is to win the league tournament at the end of the year,” added Campbell. Although undersized, the Eagles rely on team speed, solid defense and hot shooting to compete against bigger teams.

Craig McGee-5'5 PG Milford Eagles

The team is led by a pair of captains in Craig McGee Jr. (5’5 PG) and Wes Ried (5’10 WF). We are familiar with McGee, as his outstanding play at the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase in September earned him a spot on the all-star team. The other starters on the team include: Matt Kirk (5’7 WF), Isaiah Giordullo (5’7 WF), and Max Brewer (5’9 WF). The Eagles’ reserves include Ryan Hickey (5’7 WF), Nick Glasgow (5’4 SG), Nathan Arnold (5’5 SG), Keith Carter (5’6 WF), Jason Mayleben (5’8 WF), Tyler Smith (5’6 WF) and Jack Hannah (5’3 PG).
