New ISU Men’s Basketball coach Josh Schertz brought the ISU squad, including CHS alumni Cooper Neese, to Tucker Court for a surprise practice last week.

While “School administrators and family members worked hard to keep the event a secret”, the Brazil Times got the scoop on the story, including this quote from Cooper:

“I’ve never really had a coach do something specifically for me like that, and it gave our team a bonding moment and for my teammates to learn a little bit about Cloverdale,” Neese said. “I know coach [Patrick] Rady would do something like that for me in a heartbeat. It was extremely special. I was at a loss for words.”
