EASTERN – After tearing his ACL over the summer, Allen Central senior Seth Hall made a triumphant return to the court for the Rebels in February. Hall helped lead Allen Central to a 17-16 record. The Rebels finished runner-up to South Floyd in the 58th District and made an appearance in the 15th Region Boys’ Basketball Tournament. Hall, who averaged a team-high 15.8 points per game for the Rebels, overcame adversity to get back on the court. The productive Hall and his teammates battled throughout the 2015-16 season.
“The one thing that I loved about our boys this season was how hard they played,” Allen Central Coach Brad Short commented. “If you go back and look at most of our games we outrebounded a lot of teams consistently this season and that was not an easy task considering our size.”
Hall returned to the court in December and didn’t miss a beat for the Rebels.
“Seth Hall worked really hard to have the opportunity to play this year after tearing his ACL this summer,” Short confided. “I know that both he and Cameron Blevins played through a lot of injuries and pain throughout the season and both played hard. Our program is definitely on the right track. We are continuing to get better each season and our seniors helped a great deal to continue in that direction.”
Allen Central will return to the court later in the offseason. A busy summer schedule is in the works for the Rebels.
“Although we graduate five seniors, I feel that we have a lot of young talent that will help us in the future,” Short added. “Our boys plan on working hard in the offseason. This summer we plan on playing a lot of summer games and are going to Thomas More camp in Northern Kentucky.”
