West Oktibbeha coach Danny Crawford stands by the adage that hard work pays off.
On Friday, he saw that come to fruition as one of his Timberwolves, Kadarius Yates, inked a letter of intent to join the Holmes Community College Bulldogs.
“That is what the kids work hard for,” Crawford said. “You take care of your business in the classroom, perform well on the court and at the end of the day, you will be rewarded with a scholarship.”
Yates’ signing is even more special given the fact that West Oktibbeha was only allowed to play a limited schedule this season. The senior and Starkville Daily News Boys Player of the Year made those 15 games count as he averaged 27.3 points and 15.3 rebounds per game.
