In recent action junior Chris Bertrand, a 6-foot-4 power forward, has enjoyed his time in the spotlight, posting double-doubles in back-to-back games last week.
“He has emerged as of late as a go-to guy in the post,” said Blessed Trinity basketball coach Brian Marks of Bertrand, who dropped 17 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in a win over Pinecrest Academy before scoring 15 and grabbing 10 boards in a region game against Cedar Grove.
Bertrand rotates playing time in the post with four other Titans and is best known for athleticism and ability to crash the glass — an area he has excelled in all season. But Marks said his recent ability to score in the paint gives the Titans’ an option in the post that will be invaluable as they make a push to return to the state playoffs.
“He is just starting to get comfortable on both ends of the floor and will play a vital role over the next two years. He has the potential to be a consistent scorer inside and become an interior defender who makes plays.”
