Hilliary Scott Head Coach

Lynchburg native and former Penn State University assistant Hilliary Scott begins his second season as head coach of the Hornets in 2009-10 . In his first season at LC, Scott helped coach two players to the All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference team. His team posted a 24-point victory over Drew University and followed it up with the program’s first ever victory over Ferrum College. Additionally, the team recorded a big win over Bridgewater College on Senior Day to close out the regular season. Scott attended local E.C. Glass High School and played his collegiate basketball at nearby Roanoke College. As a Maroon, he was a two-time National Association of Basketball Coaches All-American in 1993 and 1994 and was named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Player of the Year in his senior season. Scott graduated from Roanoke in May of 1994 with a degree in religion and philosophy, and was inducted into the RC Athletic Hall of Fame in 2004. Scott was an assistant coach at Penn State University from 2003-08, helping the Division I Nittany Lion program to doubledigit win totals in each of the last three campaigns. He also worked for five seasons as an assistant coach at East Tennessee State (1998-99 season through 2002-03). The Buccaneers won three-straight Southern Conference North Division Titles and an NCAA Tournament berth in 2002-03. Before entering the coaching ranks, Scott played professional basketball in Europe for two teams. As a member of the Killester Basketball Club (Dublin, Ireland), he played from 199496 and averaged over 25 points, seven rebounds and six assists a game. Scott joined the Chester Jets (England) for the 1996-97 season and contributed 15 points and six boards a game.

2009-10 Season Preview The 2009-10 Lynchburg College men’s basketball team will have a different look this season. Head coach Hilliary Scott has brought in his first recruiting class and will also implement an up tempo system this winter. The team will have a challenging schedule this year that features two road contests at Division I foes Virginia Military Institute and Radford University along with several strong teams from the always tough ODAC and USA South Conferences. This year’s squad returns several Steven Echols upperclassmen that will bring valuable experience to a team featuring nine underclassmen. Seniors Steven Echols, KC Mendez, Jack Burgess, Jeff Langrock, and Brad Puffenbarger played in a combined 128 out of 130 games and accounted for 51% of the team’s total minutes last year. Headlining the senior class is 2007 and 2009 honorable mention All-ODAC performer, Steven Echols. Echols is one of the most dynamic and athletic guards in the league, will be counted on as a go-to player for the Hornets, and needs just 189 points to break the 1,000 point plateau. KC Mendez had a breakout season as a junior and was the team’s third leading scorer with 9.2 points per contest, utilizing his strong midrange KC Mendez game and floater to full effect. Jack Burgess

Jack Burgess

returns to the team as a redshirt senior despite graduating last spring and will be pursuing a Masters degree in Business Administration. An allaround solid player, Burgess is capable of scoring in multiple ways but is also valued for his passing and on-ball defensive skills. Jeff Langrock is one of the most athletic players on the team and is an efficient scorer as he shot 58.1% from the field last season and has shot 51% for his career. Brad Puffenbarger is arguably the best pure shooter on the team and is more than capable of lighting up a team from beyond the arc as he made seven threes against Christopher

Newport in 2008. The junior class boasts two players likely to be counted on this season. Danny Reed provides valuable leadership qualities for the Hornets and is a solid presence on the boards and in the scoring column. Brad Kenney should see an increase in playing time this year with a marked improvement in his postup game after being recruited as a deep threat out of high school. Additionally, sophomore Casey Sutherland returns to the team and will compete for time at power forward. The recruiting class is composed of a bevy of talent and depth that will help move the Hornets up the ODAC standings immediately and in the years to come. Nate Campbell, a sophomore transfer from Liberty University, will make an immediate impact on the frontline as he will contribute greatly in scoring and rebounding for Lynchburg. Jeff Langrock Brandan Connor, a guard that was a high

school teammate of UNC’s Ed Davis, and Michael Glover, a guard from Verona, VA, are strong players that possess good shooting skills and are stout defenders. Josh Caldwell, a post player from Harlan, KY, is a tough and physical player that can score in the low post. Mike Roach and Michael Wims were scholastic teammates at William Monroe High School in Standardsville, VA. Roach was the Player of the Year in the district and is an athletic guard with a scorer’s mentality. Wims, a forward, has only Brad Puffenbarger played organized basketball for four years but is an extremely athletic player that has a high ceiling with good ball handling skill for a forward. Robby Kaiser, a guard from East Stroudsburg, PA, has one of the best jump shots on the team and is deadly from three point range. Austin Chillemi, a center from Richmond, VA, is a skilled big man that can score around the basket and out to 15 feet. Quintin Aldridge is a transfer from Germana Community College that will be a leader for the team and can take defenders off the dribble. Coach Scott and the rest of the staff will work to gel together the new faces with the returners to guide Lynchburg up the ODAC standings.
