Another game, another “building block” for the Denis Morris Redmen in their quest to end 2014-15 with an Ontario senior boys basketball championship.
That’s the approach head coach C.J. Crocco took when it came to celebrating the triple A team’s 63-43 victory over the Lakeshore Gators in qualifying-round action at the 60th Tribune Boys Basketball Tournament in Welland.
Crocco, who is in his first year coaching Denis Morris, said rather than focusing on the big picture, such as a tournament title or a berth in the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations championships, the Redmen are far more interested in the process.

As early graduation presents go, being selected as the league’s most valuable player in your final year of high school football is about as good as it gets.
Though Mack Jones is pleased that his hard work in the gym and on the gridiron has been been rewarded by such a prestigious individual honour, the Lakeshore Gators running back would have preferred a parting gift he could share with his teammates, like a long playoff run culminating with the Port Colborne high school’s fourth Golden Horseshoe Bowl provincial championship.
