Senior Mack Mercer will be competing this weekend in the Jr. All-Star Series. Mack will participate in all 4 games because he is part of the core team playing. The North 6 will play on June 7 and 12 and South 6 will play on June 8 and 10.
PHS Head Coach Ryan Bales will also be participating in the event. He is one of two Assistant Coaches for the Junior Indiana All-Stars.
“It is an amazing honor to be a part of the Indiana All-Star Team and it is an even greater honor to have one of my players on the team in Mack Mercer. Mack is very deserving of this honor because of his commitment to be a great player and a great teammate. He puts in a lot of time and is very dedicated to not only making himself a better player, but our Plymouth team a better team. I have been able to see him with the other invitees in his class and I can tell you he can hold his own and has made a great impression on his Indiana All-star teammates, coaches, and directors.”, said Bales.
Mercer is coming off a great season averaging a double-double per contest. What does Mack have to look forward too?
Coach Bales said, “The talent level with this group is very high — I am excited to see how we compete against the Kentucky group as well as the Indiana “Senior” All-Star Team. They should both provide some great and entertaining competition but I don’t think our guys will take a backseat to them — I see us being able to compete at a very high level and think they will be up to the challenge.”
