Brandon Evansville Boys Basketball (Season Preview)

Being able to have a season was the major highlight for the Brandon-Evansville boys’ basketball team last year, according to Head Coach Trent Hintermeister who said, “After the concern of possibly not having a season due to the pandemic, we were able to enjoy playing a shortened season and that was good for everyone.”  Kobe Reiland and Brian Lauthen were the seniors on that team.

Seniors Titus Fuller and Tyler Bitzan, juniors Brady Perleberg and Dezmond White, and sophomore Riley Perleberg, are returning letter winners. 

Other prospective varsity players included juniors Aaron Gillespie, Nate Anderson and Kian Gackle, sophomores Lucas Fuller, Carter White, Stephen Hamilton, Gracin Klimek and Cohen Rieland, and freshmen Tanner Riedel, Micah Fuller and Dustin Gillespie.

“The biggest strength of this team is the camaraderie and togetherness,” said Coach Hintermeister.  “As our chemistry grows on the court, our effectiveness as a team will increase as well.  We will need to figure out our rotations and what each player’s role will be as the season progresses.  I look forward to coaching this fantastic group of young men.”

Kellen Traphagen (varsity assistant), Adam Wagner (varsity assistant), Jeff Anderson (junior high) and Brian Perleberg (junior high) round out the coaching staff.

“I am a firm believer that Section 6 is the toughest section in all of Class A boys’ basketball,” noted Hintermeister.  “Every night will be a test.  I truly believe we will not play a bad basketball team all season.”

The Chargers are looking to improve on an 8-13 season a year ago, which saw them go 4-8 in the Little Eight Conference.
