Page 2B SPOIII~ Hays Free Press * July 21,2010 Summer Hoops Continued from pg. 1B were the underclassmen guard tandem of ju- nior Charles Williams and talented sophomore De'Andre Carson who were the two top offensive threats for the Lobes. Williams led the team in scoring while Carson dished out the most assists in his second summer of varsity- level basketball. "I think those two guys were the leaders of this team all summer long," Lehman Elite Coach David Gutierrez said. "They were always very active on the defensive end and that helped keep us in a lot of games. It says a lot about how competitive they are to be able to play against guys two or ttrree years older and hold their own." Lehman head boys basketball coach Thomas Acker, who watched from the stands as the Lobos ad- vanced to the championship game at the Dynasty Royale Classic three weeks ago, was also pleased at how his young backcourt tandem has progressed over the summer. "We will be looking at both of those guys at the varsity level because they both have some talent," Acker said. "If they are able to help us, we will certainly utilize them. They struggled at times against the more experi- enced teams like Del Valle but overall I was pleased that those two guys continued to work and get better." Second year varsity play- ers Gino Silvas and Larry Benson, both seniors, were also able to play quality min- utes during the elite season. Silvas could possibly shoul- der some of the scoring load in the fall with his outside shooting touch while Benson spent the summer working diligently to improve his touch around the basket. "Both Gino and Adam have worked on the things that we've asked them to work on and I have seen tre- mendous improvement from them both," said Gutierrez. "I'm expecting them both to make big contributions to their team in the fall." The elite summer league showcased teams from Drip- ping Springs, Wimberley, DelValle, Clemens and New Braunfels. The league has served as a measuring stick for many players who have eligibility remaining on the high school level every season. It was only the second full season that Lehman has assembled an elite league squad and Acker believes that the young Lobos have reaped the benefits of facing off against top-level teams this summer. "Once the guys under- stand and start to execute what we are trying to teach them, the results can only be positive," Acker said. "l think the more that this summer program grows, the better offour players will be. And where we want to be is the playoffs." Lehman 7-on-7 Continued from pg. 1B for Lehman was newcomer Levi Ridley, a transfer from Tennessee who is expected to be in the Lehman starting iii i/ii!ii!!i;i! ~ii !i STAFF REPORTS The Tejanos Baseball Organization is made up of kids from around Hays County and surround- ing areas.
