WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Senior Zack Patton signed his national letter of intent Thursday and the Cavalier will play basketball at Wabash College for Coach Antoine Carpenter’s Little Giants.
Patton led the Cavs to a second place regular season finish in the Midwest Conference and an appearance in the Caston sectional final.
Like a lot of kids in Indiana, Patton grew up around the game and by signing to play for Wabash he’ll get to continue his playing career.
“I’ve actually played basketball since I was in Kindergarten, so I’ve always had that love for the game. My parents have definitely put that and instilled that in me. I’ve always been in the gym shooting and working on my game as much as possible, and it feels amazing to have it finally pay off and have my dreams come true,” said Patton.
Head coach Tyler Scherer has been around for most of Zack Patton’s high school career and understands the time and effort that was put in and is happy that it paid off for his senior.
“Zack kind of talked about this being a goal for him, as a young man, and to see him accomplish those goals is very fulfilling. And to see that come to fruition makes you feel good about yourself (and) your basketball program, but most importantly a special feeling for Zack,” said Scherer.
