Golden Eagles At A Glance
A young Naples roster came of age under Coach Garrett Hull’s up-tempo system, reaching Florida’s Class 5A Final Four for the first time in two decades behind 6-5 SR Tony Green (20.3 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.3 apg, 2.7 spg) and 5-10 SR Byntley Theork (13.4 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 3.4 apg, 2.3 spg). Notably, the Golden Eagles earned its City of Palms invitation with a quartet of “statements” locally, beating Charlotte, Canterbury, Evangelical Christian and Dunbar. Green’s 32 points (16 in the fourth quarter) ignited a 70-59 triumph on Jan. 7 in Punta Gorda, the first of 12 wins during a 14-game, late-season stretch. Naples returns at least 10 varsity players, including 5-10 SR Max Youmans (6.7 ppg, 2.3 rpg), 5-10 SOPH Jonas Dulcona (5.2 ppg), 6-2 JR Sherrod Lord (4.2 ppg, 3.7 rpg) and 6-5 SR James Cone (3 ppg).
