Eric finished his 2017-18 JV basketball season. As a freshman he was usually the 2nd player off the bench and got a reasonable amount of playing time. He missed some games and practices due to recurring strep throat, but pushed through at the end. Overall the team had a successful season with losses to Cooperstown, Sherburne-Earlville and Whitesboro.
Following conclusion of the HP JV basketball season he participated in a week-long basketball game run by Doneilous King and prepared to join a Mohawk Valley Elite AAU team.
