Rebound Record Broken


Cole Cronk

After a grueling 4 years of high school basketball, senior Brady Weber reached the pinnacle of a big man’s career. After advancing to the second round of the OHSAA state tournament Brady pulled down his 222nd rebound, making him the Lakota West all-time single-season rebound record holder. He ended the season against a tight matchup with crosstown rival Mason. Although the game did not end the outcome Lakota West wanted, Brady extended his record to 235 and averaged 9.4 rebounds a game during his senior year campaign.  

The current roster was made up heavily of underclassmen and without hesitation, Brady took on the role of a team leader on and off the court. Many times it can be overwhelming to be a sophomore or freshman on varsity but he made them feel at home; Spreading his knowledge at practice, helping them get over a bad game, and always leading by example. Brady’s junior high coach, Scott Laman spoke very highly of him and described him as “THE definition of a student/athlete! Every coach dreams of coaching a kid like him.” Congratulations to Brady Weber on all of his accomplishments and we wish him the best of luck as he will study business at the University of Cincinnati!
