Coach Kevin Conlon’s quote: “Nathan is a quiet leader for us who just goes about his business the right way every day. Over the last two years, I’m not sure he’s missed a single workout, open gym, practice, etc., and all of that hard work is paying off with a big senior season. His transformation from last season to this season is really remarkable as he has nearly doubled both his scoring and rebounding averages and has become a dominant force in the post. His confidence is growing with each game, and it’s been great to see him get better and better every day. Off the court, Nate is one of the most intelligent kids I’ve been around and ranks among the top kids in his class.”
