“With Joe, you want to soak it in and enjoy the talent you’re watching, because you don’t see a player like him around here. He’s the total package. He can handle the ball, pass the ball, score the ball. He’s pretty unselfish, so he could score even more. He kind of runs that team.”
Bryce Laxdahl
Head Coach head coach at Northern Cass High
