Area notes: Steinmetz, Hines both reach 2,000
Fort Cobb-Broxton's Greyden Steinmetz and Cameron Hines didn't get any time to ease into their high school careers. The Mustangs heavily depended on their scoring ever since the two were freshmen.
The numbers are starting to reflect as much in Steinmetz and Hines' senior season.
Just six days after Hines reached the 2,000-point mark for his career in the Caddo County finals against Cyril, Steinmetz reached the feat last Friday against Carnegie.
"You hear about kids going over 2,000 fairly often. It's a fairly common deal. But you don't hear about many in the same class, same year and everything. It's pretty neat they did it as close together as they did," Fort Cobb coach Scott Hines said.
Cameron Hines is committed to East Central University, while Steinmetz has pledged to Redlands Community College. The two have helped keep Fort Cobb ranked No. 1 in its class for nearly all of their four-year careers. The Mustangs are 18-4 and No. 1 in Class A with three regular-season games left until the playoffs, where Hines and Steinmetz will try to win their third straight titles.
Coach Hines said it's hard to tell where the players have improved the most since their freshmen campaigns they stepped into the gym as polished, ready-to-go scorers.
