Was last season a fluke or is Hiram Johnson High School basketball regaining its crown?
Johnson Varsity basketball has opened a lot of eyes in the Sacramento metropolitan area.
Coach Stefan Villegas has changed the atmosphere around when it comes to HJHS basketball.
When asked was this season a fluke he said, “It was a big turnaround for our players and program.”
Coach Villegas thinks that they are coming back to the playoffs and that his players are hungrier than ever.
In the NBA, you have the Miami Heat and they have the “big 3” including Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James. Hiram Johnson has there own big 3: Sophomore Vonte Grant, Junior Donald Jackson, and Junior Charles Mills.
According to Donald Jackson, he believes “The future is very bright because we have a lot of young players that have a lot of potential.”
According to Charles Mills, “Vonte brings a lot of energy to the game and he has the skill set of a varsity caliber type player.”
Coach Villegas is excited for the upcoming season. He communicates with his players everyday.
The big 3 appreciates Coach V because he is a great motivator teacher and Coach.
