SEBRING, Ohio (WKBN) – With just one starter from last year’s team, Sebring’s new boys’ varsity basketball coach is looking to complete.

This past May, Sebring named Marlington graduate Lee Knepp the boys’ varsity basketball coach to replace Brian Clark.

The Trojans’ one returning starter is senior guard Elijah Frederick.

“We’re hoping to improve our play in practices and games throughout the season. We’re relying heavily on our junior and senior class to lead our team,” said Coach Knepp.

Frederick will be joined by his classmates Gabe Berolini, Carter Holodnak, Akias Ketchem, Andrew Latham, Zach Ruzek, Kiran Welty and Elijah’s brother, Noah. A trio of juniors rounds out the roster with Caden Shepherd, Scott Boston and Kade Leasure all seeking to contribute as well as sophomore Dustin Black.

Sebring opens the 2021-22 campaign on Black Friday against Leetonia on the road.
