Kelsey Cobb , SR, Perry Panthers
Kelsey doesn’t do anything extremely spectacular, but does everything pretty well. She defends well, and has great size and athleticism, which allows her to defend bigger or smaller. She’s reliable with the basketball and understands ball security. Kelsey’s shot is acceptable and is one of the better players I’ve seen at pulling up midrange off the dribble. She’s an extremely hard worker and always invested in team.
Brittany Miner, SR, Perry Panthers
As a serious volleyball player Brit isn’t a player you see all year long. She will be a player you see all season long though! A great on ball defender who is a leader for the really young Panthers. This senior has improved consistently during her career and last year showed she was a reliable option on the offensive end. I fully expect Miner to show even more this season and standout on a very good Perry team.
Tori St. Jean, Sophomore, Perry Panthers
Tori has certainly made a name for herself and turned some heads as of late. She has risen her game to the point that she is always a force when she’s on the floor. She has great length and she has used that to her advantage. Her scoring has taken off this spring as she has showcased a reliable jumpshot and started attacking the basket. She has really picked up the intensity on the boards and consistently creates easy points by making great defensive plays.
Karlee Pireu, Sophomore, Perry Panthers
Karlee is bigger, stronger, faster, and badder than what she was last year. That’s the easiest way to explain her transformation. She has grown into a serious force. She can legitimately do it all with a decent degree of success. She can hit the jumper, she can get to the basket. She has rounded her game so well that she will create matchup problems everywhere. She is fast enough to guard a smaller player, as well as big and strong enough to guard any big. On the other end she’s skilled enough to exploit a bigger defender and big and strong enough to punish a smaller one.
Federal League Preview
BY HOFHUDDLE on FRIDAY • ( 0 )
The Federal League has to be one of the toughest in the state, with the exception of Lake every team has a chance to win the league. It’s so close that it couldn’t possibly be predicted. As far-fetched as it sounds there are 5 teams that can split the season series with 4 other teams and force a 5-way tie. I know it sounds crazy but that’s how tight this race is going to be.Perry brings a really solid mixture of veteran leadership and young talent. Kelsey Cobb and Brittany Miner are two of the most underrated seniors in the area, both are very big pieces to the success of the Panthers. The combo of Karlee Pireu and Kimmie Borck is one of the best in Ohio in the 2017 class, add in Tori St. Jean and you have a spectacular sophomore trio. The biggest concern for the Panthers is their depth, after the starters it gets a little thin.
