    I think he is a much better athlete than Gerry. I'm not sure about being a better athlete than Jimmer. He would have been a pretty good QB in Glens Falls system this year too. That said I think he shares the ball better than Fredette, and shoots it better, but doesn't drive it better.

    One of the assistant coaches is from CP so he might be tying in an xmas visit.

    he is 2nd in the section in scoring at 34 a game. the Lufkin Argyle kid is avg 39. his older brother had a nice run and went Div III, though this one is a bit bigger.

    MIchigan will be SU's biggest competition for Girard. I think his dad played for Beilin.

    Girard climbs section II scoring list.

    Glens Falls' Joe Girard III climbs Section II scoring list

    I don't care what anyone says, it's amazing that this kid is a sophomore and he led his football team to the state championship and now he leads his basketball team, averaging 36 ppg for the #1 ranked class B team in the state. This stuff doesn't happen in Glens Falls, NY.

    Yes he's good but high D1 ? His father is on him like white on rice. Kid has a high bb Iq and they throw everything against him. Box and one triple team and he still scores
    What SU has going is that his family and friends will get to see him play? Michigan is upper US and Ak

    I watched Ryan McDonough beat us the other night like Spike Albright in the past. Girard has to be much better than those guys. Let's start getting more offers out. Can it really be true that we haven't offered Duarte or HoWash. I trust the coaches but that just seems a bit strange.

    Yes, he has the potential to be high D1. He shoots lights out and these are not spot up 3’s with no defense. I’ve seen him drain off balance falling away circus shots from NBA range. Double teams, box and 1’s doesn’t matter. He’ll stop and pop or a between the legs step back 3, doesn’t matter. Very quick release, great form. He can handle the rock to.

    As his body matures and he gets stronger I have no doubt he can play in the ACC. I don’t really see any difference between Girard and what Gerry McNamara did in high school.

    The kid is just a winner to.
