As a result, the Eagles bring back seven seniors with varsity experience who believe they can match what the program accomplished in 2015.
“Exception this year is definitely a state championship,” senior guard Andrew Hohmann said. “That’s pretty much our goal every year, but I think this year, we have a lot of seniors, depth, experience, and our juniors right now are pretty strong. So, I think we have a great chance of doing what we did four years ago and bringing a state championship here.”
Centennial lost first-team All-County guard Elijah White but return almost every other major contributor. Hohmann, senior guard Kaleb Addisu and senior guard Jaden Williams are now third-year varsity players.
Hohmann and Addisu were the second and third-leading scorers, respectively, last season, while senior point guard Corey Eudell chipped in 3.1 assists and 2.0 steals per game. Sean Taylor also made a sizable impact last season, whether in the starting lineup or off the bench. The 5-foot-9 guard drilled 23 3-pointers en route to averaging 7.5 points.
The Eagles also expect increased inside production from Williams and 6-foot-6 senior Hayden Ford.
