Packer Seniors Profiled in Austin Daily Herald

14 Mar

Today’s Austin Daily Herald has a great profile on the Packer seniors – Ryan Larson, Goliath Oboyo, Nate Schwab, Zach Vierkandt – and the road they’ve taken to playing in the Section 1AAA championship game on Friday.

Here’s a sampler:

While they’ve clicked throughout the season for the No. 5 ranked Packers (22-5 overall), who are playing for Austin’s first state tournament berth in 30 years against New Prague this Friday, some of them weren’t even on the basketball radar in Austin a few years ago.

The biggest thing to know is that Goliath Oboyo, Nate Schwab, Zach Vierkandt and Ryan Larson combined for about five minutes of varsity playing time before this season and now they’re all playing key roles on Austin’s best team in 30 years.

Read the whole story.

Follow the Packers on Twitter, and find the Fast Break Club on Facebook.

Be sure to get to Rochester Friday night for the championship game against New Prague. If you need a ride, we have bus transportation available.
