MullinsKyle Drew is living the dream getting to be the head basketball coach at his alma mater Pee Dee Academy (10-7, 4-1) where he once led the Eagles to victory on the hardwood.

Coach Drew is in the middle of his 5th year as head coach after being an assistant coach for one year. “We have a very deep team this yea rand there is little difference from the first group of starters versus the second group of starters we have,” he said. “We have a lot of players with similar ability and our senior leadership has been very good.

“Our goal is to finish up the regular season strong get a decent two seed for the playoffs and I don’ t sees anyone moving ahead of Christian Academy for seeding so they will get the top seed, but we are fighting it for second place,” said Coach Drew. “We are hoping to make the playoffs for the 5th year in a row and you just never know when teams are going to get on a run, but we have a hard-working group of guys who can make things happen.”

The team is led in scoring by shooting guard Reese Webster at 14 points and six assists a game. Shooting guard Cameron Weston is at 13 points and five rebounds a game and senior power forward Jake Lane is getting 10 points and five rebounds a game. Ryan Brewer is also a starter playing well at a shooting guard. The starting center is 6-1 Michael Martin.

Two players first off, the bench, when they are starting, is small forward Connor Gasque and point guard Caleb Oakley.

Other players contributing include, 6-1 8th grader Hudson Spivey who can play four positions, along with junior forward Connor Garris and shooting guard Ryan Forney. Senior guard Trevon Rogers and junior center A.J. Forney round out the team.

One development is that Pee Dee will play the Christian Academy boys on some Friday over the next three weeks, but an exact date has not worked out. The game had been scheduled for Friday January 18th, but a request was made by CA to move the game.

Coach Drew is assisted by Logan Rogers and Scott Webster.
