Burrton’s Alex Santiago — an all-state pick for The Eagle — is headed to Butler Community College to play for the defending Region VI champs and Mike Bargen. Now all Bargen has to do is replace Caleb Walker. I was sort of joking right there. I think Santiago fits in perfectly in this system — and could be invaluable with his ability to stretch it out. Can he score in college like he did on the high-school level (29 ppg)? Probably not, but he doesn’t need to. Excited to see what he can do.
Here’s the link to the story by Pat Sangimino of the Hutch News … what do you think about that aside on Coach Eck saying he got outworked for the kid? Strange.
