Lampasas Boys HS Preview

Left: All Region Performer 2009 6'4" Heath Hopson
Coach Scott Harrelson's Badgers hope to be in the middle of a fight for the 4th playoff spot in District 25-4A. That district is loaded though, so it will be a dog fight. In watching Lampasas, what they may have going for it is their methodical system. They're not going to run up and down the court tossing up shots willy nilly. This will be a chage of pace for squads like Killeen, Lake Travis, P'Ville Hendrickson and Hutto who like to push the pace.

Lampasas will be led in the backcourt by 2009 6'0" PG Jordy Carnes.
The real workhorse though will be 6'4" W/P Heath Hopson who earned All Region Honors last season while averaging 20ppg and 9 boards. I was impressed with his ability to run the floor, shoot from different spots on the court including the trey ball and in his ability to finish around the basket.
