Kowboys At A Glance
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a Florida school with a resume that matches Osceola’s (92-23) over a four-year span that includes a state title (2017), runner-up finish (2015) and last year’s heartbreaking loss to Oak Ridge in the regional final. Coach Nathan Alexander has everyone back in 2018-19, minus big man Omar Payne (transferred to Montverde). That means entertaining guard 5-9 SR Josh Marte (16 ppg) will be shooting it from the parking lot and the duo of 6-5 SR Isaiah Palermo (14 ppg, 6.5 rpg) and 6-6 SR Jaduhkiss Soto (9 rpg) will be doing work in the paint. Those three, plus 6-3 JR Armani Thomas, started every game last season.
