Men's Basketball Inks Three from Florida
August 11, 2009
MISENHEIMER, N.C. Pfeiffer University head mens basketball coach Dave Davis has announced the signing of four Florida high school standouts for the upcoming 2009-2010 season. The Falcons have added Levi Moore, Reggie Hollinger, and Van Gray from the state of Florida.
Moore enters the Falcon Basketball community after a storied career at St. Joseph Academy in St. Augustine. Checking in at 63, 195lbs, the wing scored an impressive 1,651 points in his three-year career, averaging 25.8 points per game, 9.8 rebounds, and five assists per game as a senior. Moore shot over 55% from the field and over 42% from the three point line in 2008. He was a three time all-county selection, was the Florida Coaches Association district five player of the year, and the Class 2A Player of the Year in 2009. Off the court, Levi was a member of the National Honor Society as he carried a 3.47 grade point average in high school.
Hollinger, a sharpshooter from Jones High School in Orlando brings experience to Misenheimer from one of the most successful high school programs in the state of Florida. The 63 lefty guard was the top three point shooter in class 3A in 2009. Averaging 17 points, a half-dozen rebounds, and three steals per contest, Hollinger helped propel Jones to a #2 state ranking at the 3A level. Hollinger was selected to participate in the U.N.C.F. and Orlando Magic all-star games after his senior year, and was selected as an All-Metro, All-Conference honorable mention player.
Point guard Gray comes to Pfeiffer from Piper High School in Lauderhill, where he averaged 14 points, five rebounds, eight assists, and four steals per game. Gray was a member of the 2007 6A State Championship team, and was selected to play in the Change the Game South Florida Classic for Leukemia. Gray has been selected as the 2009 Piper High School Coaches Award recipient and was an all-county honorable mention selection. Gray has earned multiple student-athlete awards, carrying a 3.6 grade point average during his time at Piper.
We are thrilled to land four quality student-athletes out of the state of Florida, said Davis. We have worked very hard at recruiting quality student-athletes and Pfeiffer men. My assistant coach Jeremy Currier has been the catalyst in this area. Florida is full of quality players and we have not had much success there in the past. These guys are outstanding players and people with all four having a chance to make an immediate impact as a freshman at Pfeiffer, which is very rare.
