Leading his team to a big early season win over New Albany last Friday night, Myrtle senior Robert Montgomery is this week’s Player of the Week for the Gazette.
Montgomery scored 21 of the Hawks 23 second quarter points and finished with 41 points in the 82-68 win over the Bulldogs. Myrtle coach Cliff Ormon spoke of the senior’s on-going dedication to the program.
“He’s been great ever since I took over. He’s bought in, and whenever you have an established player doing that, it helps when you have a new coach coming into the job,” he said. “He knew his role from the get go and has accepted any role. He does anything it takes to get the win. The other guys have seen him do this and have accepted their roles as well.”
