The Flour Bluff Hornets boys basketball team has started off the season strong.
They are 17-8 overall with a 3-1 record in district and they also took home 3rd place in the Calallen Christmas Classic.
This team is by no means big, but rather they are quick and skilled. Head coach Jaime Boswell believes at the end of the day skill trumps all.
“Coaches will tell you all the time that you need certain amounts of guard play, certain amounts of bigs to win but we will take guards any time of the day,” Coach Boswell said.
One of their guards who has taken the Coastal Bend by storm is junior Dorian Bertero.
Bertero is leading the team in scoring, averaging just over 25 points per game.
“If you have skill position players like Dorian it puts you in a great position to be successful,” Boswell said.
But Bertero has not been able to do this all on his own. Humble, he credits everyone around him for his early season success.
“My coaches kind of lay out the blueprint for me for scoring and my offensive game and then my teammates are the ones feeding me and giving me opportunities,” Bertero said.
Bertero and the Hornets will take on Gregory-Portland tomorrow night.
