Evan Horn is a difference maker who practices deference.
Sometimes, merely out of respect Horn will defer to his older Cedar Crest boys’ basketball teammates. He only asserts himself when his squad needs him the most.
On Saturday afternoon at Hershey’s Giant Center, Horn was up front and present during the Falcons’ time of need. With Cedar Crest short-handed in the District Three Class AAAA championship game against York High, the junior guard stepped up with a trio of three-point field goals, 21 points, a boat load of rebounds and a handful of assists.
Despite perhaps his greatest effort of the season, Horn’s Falcons fell to the Bearcats for a second season. On Wednesday at Giant Center, Horn had scored 11 points to help Cedar Crest to a 58-49 semifinal triumph over Reading.
The Falcons will carry a 26-3 overall mark into next week’s PIAA Class AAAA tournament.
