Grays Harbor Men’s Basketball features multiple local players

The Grays Harbor College Men’s Basketball team says that recent player signings feature 3 local players.

In a post from the Chokers, they say that in addition to two Aberdeen High School graduates in Derrell Shale and Ben Dublanko, the team will feature Mathew Pearson of Willapa Valley High School.

They also report that in-state recruiting has brought a number of regional players. 

The post said that second year Head Coach Matthew Vargas is positively optimistic about his Washington recruiting class. 

“I believe we have a great mixture of highly skilled players and kids that have a chip on their shoulder – I mean really tough kids. This is a tough conference – you have to have guys that will compete. I think we accomplished that with this group”, stated Vargas. 

Last year, the team began what Coach Vargas claims will be a three year rebuilding process, of the men’s basketball program. In 2017, the Chokers won a total of four games. 

The 2018 Grays Harbor College men’s basketball team posted a 10 – 18 record last season. 

All the signees will be entering their freshmen year.
