Interesting player at Wilkes-Barre GAR


#1

I think this has been noted on this board in the past, but Wilkes-Barre GAR has a 6’10" 355 lb sophomore playing center by the name of Christian Skrepanek, son of erstwhile Wolverine All American and long time NFL player Greg Skrepanek. Looks like he’s averaging about 6 pts a game - not bad for a sophomore.

If you know the story of Greg and his wife, I sure hope this kid turns out different. A little fatherly guidance from the JoePa school of “success with honor” would help set this kid up for life.

No idea. His dad played at 6’8" and about 330. So maybe the kid has a little fat; but he sure has a huge body.
