Adam Long isn’t a leader, he’s a revolutionary. He’s at the head of a movement to turn the fortunes of the Annville-Cleona boys’ basketball program around.
And where Long goes, his Little Dutchmen teammates will follow.
This week, at the Northern Lebanon Christmas Tournament, Long once again did his part to help point Annville-Cleona in the right direction. For his efforts, the junior point guard was named to the event’s all-tournament team.
The honor was well earned.
On Friday night, Long poured in a game-high 21 points during Annville-Cleona’s 56-38 drubbing of Tulpehocken in the consolation game. An evening earlier, Long had dropped in 11 points in an opening-round 74-53 setback at the hands of Littlestown.
Through ten games – during which the Little Dutchmen have gone 4-6 – Long has posted a scoring average of 15 points per outing. He’s also an accurate shooter, one of Annville-Cleona’s top free-throwers and three-point marksmen.
During the spring months, Long can be found toiling on the baseball diamond for the Little Dutchmen, as an accomplished catcher.
