Jacob Gudorf – Senior – Brookville High School – Varsity Basketball

Jake serves as our point guard and demonstrates outstanding skill and leadership both on & off the court.  He does all the little things that make everyone around him better. His unselfish play & court vision have allowed him to set multiple BHS records (see stats below).    He is truly an asset to our program in every way and deserves recognition!

Corey has always been a great scorer but his ability to play defense and distribute the ball to his teammates is invaluable to the team.  His infectious smile keeps the locker room loose and his on court ability helps the Vikings win games. He’s a great player and teammate.
