high on potential
BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY
Mt. Tabor head coach Willie Harrison

has ever coached on the Junior Varsity
level. To overcome the lack of height his

kids time on the floor playing," Harrison
went on to say. "Developing skills is very
important to me, that's my goal and that's
what I'm trying to do."
