LOCAL SPORTS – “ATHLETE OF THE WEEK”

(SHELBY) – OUR KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE OF THE WEEK HAD ANOTHER MASSIVE SCORING NIGHT AND WITH ALL THE SHOTS HE TOOK, HE MISSED ONLY ONCE.

RHETT REYNOLDS, SHELBY’S 6’9” POST RACKED UP A SEASON HIGH 39 POINTS AGAINST DIVISION RIVAL MALTA SATURDAY.   11 OF THOSE 39 CAME IN THE 4TH QTR AS THE MUSTANGS WHO TRAILED MOST OF THE WAY WOULD NOT GIVE IN AND THE COYOTES KEPT RIGHT ON FEEDING INSIDE TO REYNOLDS.

AND WHILE THE POINTS WERE ONE THING, THE MANNER IN WHICH THEY CAME WAS EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE, 17-18 FROM THE FIELD.   RHETT WAS ALSO BIG ON DEFENSEN WITH 17 REBOUNDS INCLUDING 10-DEFENSIVE AND 7-OFFENSIVE BOARDS.   HE ADDED 2 STEALS AND 2 BLOCKED SHOTS WITH ONE OF THOSE BLOCKS COMING IN THE KEY 4TH QTR AS MALTA WAS MAKING THEIR FINAL RUN.

SHELBY HEAD COACH TOM REYNOLDS SAID HE FELT LIKE RHETT STEPPED IT UP AND MADE SOME PLAYS WHEN THEY NEEDED IT LATE IN THE GAME.  IN HIS WORDS, “HE’S DOING A LOT OF GOOD THINGS FOR US,” WHICH MIGHT BE A MAJOR UNDER STATEMENT FROM A HUMBLE COACH.

REYNOLDS ALSO HAS A 38-POINT GAME TO HIS CREDIT THIS SEASON AND HIS TEAMMATES CONTINUE TO SEEK HIM OUT WITH GREAT PASSES THAT LEAD TO SCORES.
