Southeast Bulloch is trying to regain its stride after a few down years and senior forward Blake Lundy is leading the charge.
Facing an opponent two classifications above them Tuesday night, the Yellow Jackets fell a bit short against Statesboro, but made a good impression. Lundy led all players with 20 points and fell just one rebound shy of a double-double with nine rebounds.
“Blake has made some big strides,” SEB coach John Page said. “He has really worked hard over the last few years, and it’s paying off for him. He’s showing us a lot of good things out there.”
Lundy will be a big part of SEB’s game plan this season — largely in part to the imposing figure he presents down low.
The Jackets don’t have a ton of size down low, so Lundy is heavily depended on to stop any threats in the paint, as well as draw defenders away from the SEB guards.
“We need him to battle for us,” Page said. “Blake has a great attitude about everything. We’re trying to find our identity, and as a senior, he’s a big part of getting our team going.”
