After earning a reputation as a reliable scorer the last two years, Travis Souza added to his repertoire this season in a bid to help Turlock win the CCC.
"We are looking for him to control the tempo of the game, get his teammates involved in the offense and be a vocal leader," said coach Doug Cornfoot, who expects to see Souza playing college ball next season. "I see Travis playing off-guard in college. He shoots well, sees the court and can find the open man. (He's) being recruited by Cornell, Wyoming, Stanislaus, UC San Diego, Asuza-Pacific, Army and Navy."
Souza scored 34 points last week while leading the Bulldogs to a pair of conference wins, keeping them in the thick of a three-team battle featuring crosstown rival Pitman and three-time defending champ Merced.
"The difference in winning the year will be the team that plays consistent," Cornfoot said. "Anyone can beat you if you are not prepared."
