Plenty to cheer about!

Summing up a super hoop season, with a look ahead to 2015

Rosinski, if he transfers out, would not re-classify. He’d move to a junior year on the prep ranks.

His dad and coach Pete said the decision looms very soon. Should Rosinski, the player, move on, would dad return to Pinkerton Academy, as some parents might want to follow the player around?

“Oh yeah, I’ll be back,” promised Pete. “He’s got to go out and stand on his own two feet.”

PROGRAM TAKES ON COACH’S IMAGE

Nate Stanton learned early as a player for E.J. Perry in his Salem High days that team comes first, player second.

So, in his first head coaching job at Londonderry, Stanton made it a priority to drive that same point home this year.

He had to understand the mission was accomplished by midseason when one of his standouts, second-team all-stater Drew Coveney laid his health and season on the line, diving for a steal against Bishop Guertin.

“He separated his shoulder,” said Stanton.

“And that is Drew, putting the team in front of himself and doing whatever it takes to win. Luckily he was able to come back three weeks later to lead us to get the four-seed going into the playoffs.”

Stanton is off to a superb start.
