The team is very well rounded, but some standout players are making a huge difference on the court. Center Walker Bauknight uses his size to dominate the paint and has been especially effective at the mid-range. Point-guard William Hyatt returns for his third year on the Varsity Basketball team after a great QB1 season. According to his teammate and close friend, Gray Willits, William “plays the game like a quarterback,” using his smarts and athleticism to lead the team. Small forward Gray Willits is tough and vocal which sets the tone for every game. Another strong player is senior Jake Freudenheim. From the perspective of super-fan Marshall Fleming, Jake appears “calm and doesn’t make mistakes.” His poise and patience is necessary in high stakes games.

The team has many strong-suits, but three point shooting is a point of emphasis, according to senior Gray Willits. Notable sharp shooters include Jake Freudenheim, Michael Donoho, and Baze Duckworth. The teams effective ball movement keeps opposing teams on their toes, as no player on AMHS is afraid to throw up a deep shot. The teams versatility makes games very fun to watch, not to mention the famous AMHS student section which will be in full swing this year.
