Back by popular demand (OK, by popular demand, three people have asked about the APBs in recent weeks) is The Varsity Letters issues an All Points Bulletin for former McGuffey basketball standout Seth Hunter.
Why McGuffey boys basketball? Well, after hearing from a couple coaches who believe the Highlanders will contend for a playoff spot next year in Section 5-AAA, it brought back memories of the best team in their not-so-illustrious history.
Coached by Ed Goetz, who came to McGuffey after two successful seasons at Sto-Rox, McGuffey gradually built a base for competitive. During the 2001-02 season, McGuffey won a school-record 19 games, its only section championship and made the only WPIAL playoff appearance in its history.
Hunter was a junior and in his second year as a starter. By the time he graduated in 2003, Hunter was McGuffey's career scoring leader with 1,430 points and he averaged 23.1 points as a senior. That year, Hunter established a single-game scoring record of 35 points in the Washington-Greene County Boys Senior All-Star Game.
He went on to play at Bethany College.
Anyone knowing Hunter's whereabouts is urged to contact The Varsity Letters.
