(New Buffalo, MI) - Four players from this year’s high school basketball team in New Buffalo will play in college.
Mark Shaw, Zack Forker, and Anthony Anderson have committed to the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point. Jeremiah Mitchell is heading to Southwest Michigan College.
Athletic Director Matt Johnson said it shows what hard work can do even at a small school.
“If you’re willing to put in the time and the effort and put yourself out there, good things can happen. That’s what these four young men did,” Johnson said.
Johnson said four kids from one team going on to play in college in New Buffalo is historic.
“I don’t think we’ve ever had four in one signing,” he said.
The Bison advanced to the Class D regional finals and finished the season at 22-2.
