Last week Winchester native Erick Green achieved a long-awaited milestone when he signed a three-year contract with the NBA’s Denver Nuggets.
YHB Manager Chris Frye had the privilege of working with him and getting to know him while serving as an assistant coach at Millbrook High School. Chris recently retired from coaching in February after ten enjoyable years.
“Erick played for us and we won the 2008 Virginia AA state championship and he was the state player of the year. He went on to play at Virginia Tech where he was the ACC player of the year in 2013 and led the nation in scoring.”
“I can’t say I really provided much coaching to a player of his caliber. Nevertheless, it was great getting to work with him and follow his journey, especially being a fellow Virginia Tech Hokie. He is a tremendous young man who is as good of a person as he is a basketball player. He is very deserving and earned his opportunity to play in the NBA. I am very proud of him.”
