He's quite the 'Cat-ich'
April 18, 2008 - Neil Rudel
I'll be curious where Tyrone Area High School basketball player Steve Catich lands.
Following a weekend in which Nick Leasure, the best basketball player ever to come out of Tyrone, was inducted into the Blair County Sports Hall of Fame, the best player since Leasure assembled quite a resume during the past season.
Catich earned all-state honors, was the Mirror's 2007-08 player of the year and was the most valuable player in the Altoona Mirror Basketball Classic.
Playing for Blair County against a talented Central PA team, Catich was the best player on the floor that night, displaying an impressive array of athletic skills for a 6-foot-7 player who can face the hoop, shoot the 3-pointer, go off the dribble and dunk.
He's also an excellent student whose smiling demeanor indicates he loves the game.
There's no question he'd be at least be an asset to the St. Francis program.
