PFEIFFER SIGNS STATE CHAMPION
Misenheimer, NC -- Pfeiffer head basketball coach Dave Davis announces the first signing of the spring in 6'2" state champion James Morse of Arundel, Maine. Morse led Thorton Academy to the state championship, while averaging 17.3 points per game, shooting 52 percent from the field, 86 percent at the free throw line and 43 percent from three-point range from the point guard spot. "James has winning as his main goal. He has tremendous work ethic and cares more about the team than his individual accomplishments," said Thorton Academy coach Bob Davies. Morse was named first team All-State both his junior and senior year, was MVP of the Western State Tournament and a semi-finalist for Mr. Basketball in the State of Maine. James was also chosen as a member of the New England All-Star basketball team.
"James is an outstanding student and first class young man first and foremost, and he is one terrific basketball player,” said Davis. "He is extremely versatile and can play any position for us. We are very fortunate to get him over so many quality schools in the New England area. My assistant coach Jeremy Currier did a tremendous job recruiting James and was his biggest fan all year long. James won the state championship in both high school ball and in AAU this past summer. He brings work ethic and a winning attitude that we have been so fortunate to have over my 13 years as head coach at Pfeiffer. I cannot think of a better person or player to start our recruiting year off than James Morse."
