Forgive boys basketball coaches in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools – 5A District 2, to be specific – if they are looking for new jobs next season.
And, really, who could blame them, considering what they will be up against for the next three-plus seasons when facing Central Catholic (San Antonio, Texas)
That's because the Buttons – yes, the Buttons – feature a sizeable freshmen trio that already is making its mark. Central Catholic improved to 21-10 Wednesday with a 58-42 victory against rival Antonian (San Antonio, Texas).
The first-year players weren't awed by an announced crowd of 1,200, either, Jordan Murphy, a 6-foot-4 forward, scored 10 points for Central Catholic. Also contributing this season for the Buttons are Tony Lewis, who stands 6-8, and Jordan Kite, who comes in at 6-3.
Understandably, coach Romy Vela told the San Antonio Express-News
it's the best freshmen class he's ever had, and even the team's established players are impressed.
"There have been challenges, but you can see how talented they are," Central Catholic senior Collin Fabac told the newspaper. "We're playing together and getting better each game."
