Dekalb County held their annual media day for high school basketball teams at Miller Grove High in Lithonia, Georgia on October 23, 2014. Several county schools answered questions from the media and the players that were present were photographed.
I spoke to Tucker High School coach James Hartry and he stated, “I don’t think Dekalb County can get any tuffer.” I also asked what his Tucker Tigers would need to improve on this season. He says, “Rebounding! There will always be bigger players but if you can rebound, you always have a chance.”
While being at Miller Grove, home of the six time State Champion Wolverines, I made sure to talk with Head Coach Sharman White. I asked with being the six times champs, how do you motivate the team to keep the ball rolling? He states, “Stay humble. They don’t want to become the ones that drop the ball of the legacy.”
