Welcome newcomer. A college recruiting Web site note on former American Christian player George Harper says he’s a “long athletic forward whose massive hands engulf the ball and make for soft shots.”

Any coach would like to have an impact player like that in his gym. And that’s what happened to Phoenixville coach Bill Detwiler. With American Christian in Aston closing, Harper’s family looked to move out of Philadelphia.

“They had a friend in Phoenixville and moved here,’ said a grateful Detwiler.

In addition to having those massive hands, the rest of Harper goes 6-foot-7. He’s just what Detwiler needed to battle defending champion Pottstown in the Pioneer Athletic Conference. Both teams are in the Frontier Division.

The Phantoms will have a couple of pillars inside with Harper and 6-6 Greg Peters. Other key players are Yusef Brown and Corey Gordon.
