Athlete of the Week: Drew Marchesani

Junior Drew Marchesani is the Tigers’ leading three-point shooter and is preparing to start the playoffs against Metro rival Waterloo West, who they have split the season series with.

How are you wrapping up the season and preparing for the playoffs?

We kind of hit a rough spot later in the year, but our last game against Kennedy, we played really well and are start

Having split the season series against Waterloo West, how are you game planning to beat them?

Last time we played West was at home. We didn’t have our leading scorer, Keeon [Johnson], which really hurt us offensively and defensively because we had to play zone. With Keeon back, we can play man to man, and he can cover their best man Lincoln Conrey and hopefully shut them down.

Have you thought about college at all?

I’ve definitely started to think about college. I’m going to start it off by playing a lot of AAU ball this summer and try to get on the map. I’ll work real hard and see what happens and play my hardest every game, and let it be done.
