North Olmsted Boys Varsity Basketball Player Josh Hufstetler broke the school’s all-time career record in assists this past Friday night in the close loss to Avon Lake. With his eight assists against the Shoremen, the 6’1″ senior guard passed Class of ’82 graduate Pat Lima’s 311 total career assists.
Prior to yesterday’s win against Midview, Josh is now at 313 career assists and counting with at least 10 more games left in his high school career. This is a remarkable accomplishment for any student-athlete, but especially incredible for someone that often leads all scorers in total points in any given game as well. Along with his 8 assists on Friday, Josh led all scorers for a game high 23 points.
The standout football and basketball player is one of the top athletes in the conference, and during the first half of the season on the hardwood he is averaging an SWC-leading 17.4 points, to go along with 5.3 assists and 3.0 steals a game.
Through the first half of conference play and Tuesday’s win over Midview, the Eagles hold a 7-6 overall record with a 5-5 SWC record. Hufstetler added a game high 15 points yesterday, and will look to help his team make a push in the conference during the last half of the season.
