2021 Lehman Campus Season Preview
The 2020-2021 season for the PSAL High School Boys Varsity Basketball is hopefully approaching and the Lions of Lehman Campus are expected to face it with a plethora of new players after graduating eight seniors (three New York All State players) As usual, the Lions program is optimistic that the returning players will be ready and more than willing to carry the load.
The Lions are waiting for COVID restrictions to be lifted to begin preparing vigorously and as per head coach Francisco Rivera, “We have a lot of new faces, yet we will come together, get better and continue to improve as the season goes on with the common goal being getting to Fordham University for States.”
Jalen Elfe a 5’10 tough nosed guard who plays both ends of the floor, will be in the role of senior leader and at times the new go to guy. Jalen has good range on his 3pt shot to go along with a good mid-range game the ability to finish in the paint.
Jason Weber (5’11”) who is great shooter with outstanding range will be counted on for big minutes. Forwards Fitzgerald Cuthbert (6’2”) and transfer Carlton Ellis (6’3”) are two bruising front court players and a good defender who both like to operate around the basket and out to 18ft. St. Brandon Martinez., Jaden Linen and Louie Ocasio are experienced guards ready to contribute. St. Ray’s transfer Jordan Rock (6ft) is a very tough on ball defender and tenacious slasher in transition
6’7 Steven Mejia has a chance to step right into the Center role as he grows as a player. He is a solid rebounder and shot blocker. Guards Angle Arce and Chevy Williams are lighting quick player s that have good range out to the 3pt area. Justin Santiago, who scored 46pts in a JV game vs eagle Academy last year, could be a scoring threat off the bench.
6’1 Abdalla Diaby is one to watch out for. His ability to get to the basket and compete is infectious. He will push the upper classmen for minutes.
The Coaching staff feels with great work this group will grow and have continued success at the Lehman Campus moving forward.
