Athlete of the Week: Branden Sheppard - March 5th

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Huntington's Branden Sheppard slammed a loud exclamation point during the Raiders 71-55 win over Wossman Tuesday. The 6'8 senior is one of 10 players in their final season at Huntington with one goal in mind; to win the school's first title.

Despite his late offensive display, there's another part of the game that Sheppard loves more.

"I like to block shots. I love defense."

Head coach Mack Jones described Sheppard as a complete athlete.

"He brings a good attitude; a great kid on and off the court," said Jones about his senior center. "He can run, he can score around the basket when he needs to and blocks shots for us. He does a little bit of everything for us."

Sheppard is considered the jokster of the team but is serious when it comes to the classroom. He has laready signed his letter of intent to play with Louisiana Tech next season.
