Krogman Leads White River to Another Title!

Bookmark and Share

After falling last year in the state championship game, the White River boys basketball team returned to glory this weekend, picking up the state 'B' title. Wyatt Krogman led them there using skills he learned playing against his older brothers, that's why, as Kolbe Nelson shows, he's our Karl's TV and Appliance Athlete of the Week.

With the state's all-time leading scorer in his family, Wyatt Krogman has had a lot to live up to throughout his career at White River, and he's been able to deliver...

But while they've shared similar success, there's quite a few differences between Wyatt and his two older brothers: the afforementioned scorer Louie and standup hoopster Jake.

Wyatt Krogman says:"I'm shorter... Louie was more of a scorer. I don't think he had quite the weapons I had around me. Jake he played inside and he could shoot the '3'."

Eldon Marshall, WR Coach says:"He just has a different game. He's more of a ball handler, legit classic point guard, where he likes to distribute first and then run the show, run the offense and get the other guys involved."

Wyatt used those abilities to their fullest potential over the weekend, when he led the Tigers to another state championship, the team's second in three years and the fifth title to be hoisted by a Krogman with both Wyatt and Jake picking up two trophies and Louie getting one.

The state title count goes out the window though when the three brothers compete with one another.

Wyatt says:"We play one on one against each other and I get those every now and then, I win, it's mostly Louie. It's fun though."

That's where Wyatt is most like his older brothers. His love of the game.

Marshall says:"He's smart, he loves to play. He's been part of the team, part of the state tournaments since he's been an eighth grader so this is his fourth year in the state tournament so that experience benefits him hugely and benefits our team and benefits me because he's like a coach on the floor."

And White River couldn't be happier about it.

Marshall says:"We're fortunate to have him on our team and we're fortunate to have him for one more year."
