Wildcat Pride ……Meet the Duluth Wildcats

One of the teams that may be looking to make major moves this summer are the Duluth Wildcats, who are coming off back to back Sweet 16 appearances in Coach Huff’s return to high school coaching. The Wildcats have proved to be up to the challenge in what many believe to be one of the most challenging regions in the state as they finished 19-11 two years ago and 21-9 last season. However, this year’s Wildcats have a lot of firepower to replace with the graduation of 8 seniors which included 4 starters (Lamont Smith, Adam Flagler, Christian Kelly & Will Huzzie). The Wildcats seem to have gotten some help with out of state transfers: 2019 6’7 F Devin Evans, 2019 6’0 G Jaylin Hickman (TN), and 2021 5’10 G James Webster (IN). They also added some size in 6’8 Brookwood transfer Shalom Osoba. But make no mistake the Wildcats have returning players such as 2019 6’2 G Jordan Blue, 2019 6’6 F Jonathan Bell, 2019 6’2 G Hector Rosario, 2019 6’3 W KJ Peabody, 2020 6’6 F Trent Gordon& 2020 5’10 G Jordan Johnson who are ready to take the mantel as these new look Wildcats are ready to prove themselves this season. This team could be dangerous, considering new players and Coach Huff’s championship experience with Assistant coaches Reggie Anderson, and Marcus Spivey. In a very tough region we could see this squad shock some people and appear in the Elite 8.
