Yeater, Carroll to Add Depth for the Wildcats
Senior Zach Yeater, a 5-10 shooting guard, is just what the doctor ordered to fill the void left in the Wildcats’ offense with the graduation of Kennedy Cain and Zach Heasley.
Yeater moved to the area from Hedgesville where he played for the AAA school the past three years. He brings a lot of skill and knowledge to the floor and can pull up and knock it down or take it to the bucket. Something he adds for coach Fred King’s squad is another ball handler who also sees the floor well.
Yeater says he is excited to don the Wildcat uniform and play on the same floor his father played on years back.
“I am a team player first but leave me open and I will fire it up,” he said.
He has excellent speed and is an intellegent person on and off the court. Coach King said he is also a good person who is dependable
“He will give us something we have needed – another player to help us get the ball up court. We are happy to have him,” King said. “There aren’t many weaknesses in his game,. He is a smart player who plays with confidence.”
Yeater said his goal for this year is to have a winning season and turn it up a notch come tournament time.
Senior Logan Carroll, a 6-1 forward, is back for his third year as a Wildcat basketball player. After electing not to play his sophomore year and missing most of last year with an injury, Carroll is back with a vengance.
“He wants to play and has worked hard to learn the game. Logan has the physicality to make us a better ball team. He is a good passer and will hustle around the basket, look for him to get some loose balls and stick some back in for us,” King said.
Carroll has played four years of football for the Wildcats and spent a lot of time in the weight room.
“He listens well and works extra hard in practice to stay in shape. He will use his strength and body to take up space around the basket,” Kind said.
“We are a good shooting team and have quickness. I hope to add physical play and toughness to give us another dimension,” Carroll said.
Carroll said he would like to close out his high school basketball career on a winning note.
“We definitely want to win our conferences and make a run in the post season,” he added.
