Grandview Basketball: an interview with winning coach Reggie Morris
By Sam Kombrink
The Bulldogs of Grandview High School are looking to achieve one of the greatest feats in all of sports, contending for a “three peat.” It will be a tall task for a younger team, but they have the leadership. During his time at Grandview High School, Head Basketball Coach Reggie Morris has had a record of (113-38). The Martin City Telegraph had time to ask coach Morris some questions regarding the season.
-Who are the big play makers we can expect to watch out for this season?
Our top players this year are our two returning starters from last year’s team; Reggie Morris Jr., a senior 6’1 Guard averaging (13.5 points per game) and Taj Manning, a sophomore 6’7 Forward averaging (17.5 points per game) and (10 rebounds per game).
-Current key players/leading scorers
Our leaders are Reggie (13.5 ppg) and Taj (17.5 ppg). Camden Smith has played well the first two games averaging (12 ppg).
-Grandview has won back to back State Championships, What will be the biggest challenge of achieving a three-peat?
We have a lot of inexperienced players who will be playing their first season of varsity basketball. Their ability to make the adjustment to the varsity level of basketball will be key to the success of our season and a possible run for a third championship.
The Grandview Bulldogs currently have a record of (2-2) coming off of a 51-49 win over Blue Valley on December 13, 2019, winning the Rick Taylor/Blue Valley Shootout, where (guard) Reggie Morris Jr and (forward) Taj Manning were selected to the Rick Taylor/Blue Valley Shootout All-Tournament Team.
