Player Feature: Sir’Real Smith, Saginaw High

Junior guard Sir’Real Smith has found his groove and is playing his best basketball, and his timing couldn’t be better for Saginaw High, as the Trojans have the state tournament right around the corner. But before Smith, and Saginaw High put their attention to the playoffs, they must first tackle one of their other goals, and that is the Saginaw Valley crown.  “Personally I believe that our number #1 priority is to win the SVL Championship. It would be so awesome to bring an award back to The High and add to our trophy collection,” said Smith. In order to take a closer step towards the Valley crown the Trojans must first travel to Mt. Pleasant to face 15-0 Mt. Pleasant on Friday.  A team that beat them last on a buzzer beater. Smith feels he and his team are more prepared to attack their goals than last year.  Which says alot as Smith was the only sophomore on last year’s AP All-State team. “At 13-2 I feel our chemistry is better than last year.  We are more mature, disciplined, and focussed on our goals. What you put in, is what you get out, and I feel that we have put in the hard work and discipline that is needed,” stated Smith. The 6-0 guard’s dedication and leadership has been key to the Trojans 13-2 record, but what has...

A 42 point performance alone draws plenty of attention.  But two other key factors have to be mentioned as well. More importantly Mt. Morris won the game 74-57 over Otisville Lakeville, something the Panthers haven’t done much of over the last couple of years.   Coach Steve Perryman has his program rolling...
