Solid. Steady. Dependable. When you’re trying to win basketball games, it’s sure nice to have someone to rely on.
When one talks about being steady, no one brings it night in and night out like Colton Lawrence. It is his consistency which has helped the Elco boys’ basketball team become consistent winners this season.
With a variety of moves, the ability to use either hand, a deft shooting touch and a range that extends beyond the three-point arc, Lawrence can be counted on to lead the Raiders in scoring on most nights. The athletic 6-2 forward is as comfortable playing with his back to the basket, as he does facing it.
Lawrence’s offensive arsenal makes him one of the most dangerous attackers locally and one of Lebanon County’s leading scorers.
But points isn’t the only thing that Lawrence brings to the table. He is also a tenacious rebounder, an imposing defensive presence and a player to whom teammates look for leadership.
