  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN OPINION...

    When the basketball season began, John Hardin senior guard Jeremy Harness’ heart was in it. His head, on the other hand, was filled with everything except basketball.

    Harness’ dream of winning a state championship in football was dashed in horrific fashion. The Bowling Green Purples dismantled the Bulldogs, 62-20. It was a painful ending to such a brilliant prep football career, which saw Harness set numerous John Hardin records.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN: Pieces...

    Brandon Price and Jeremy Harness expected immediate results this season. Ervin Montgomery and Daveon Greene thought it might take some time. Coach Mark Wells kept preaching patience – to his players and himself.

    So when the John Hardin Bulldogs’ season got off to a rocky start, there was concern. Price and Harness, who both started last season, thought the Bulldogs would pick right up from the previous year when they went 22-4.

    In most of Johnson Central’s contests, the young Golden Eagles’ game plan has been simple and effective: Get the ball to Shane Hall.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN OPINION...

    When John Hardin coach Mark Wells looks back at 2012 years from now, it will always hold a special place in his heart. It’s one of those years that will stand out personally and professionally.

    Earlier in the year, Wells and his wife, Kristi, found out they were expecting their second daughter. The couple has a daughter, Kiley, who just celebrated her second birthday in February.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN: Greene...

    Despite his immense size and gaudy statistics, Daveon Greene is a relative newcomer not only to the John Hardin Bulldogs, but to the sport of basketball in general.

    Greene knew little about John Hardin and even less about the Bulldogs’ hardwood history before transferring from Ohio last April, less than a month after earning Division-II Southwest All-District special mention honors while playing for Bellbrook.

    Consider the 6-foot-2, 240-pound forward a quick learner.
