Urbana-Oakdale Basketball

Urbana freshman Aaron Shoffner has been a Day One starter for the Hawks. “I just wanted to prove that I’m one of the best even though I’m one of the youngest," said Shoffner, who averages 15.3 points per game, second in the county.

When Dave Crawmer took over as Urbana’s boys basketball coach last season, one of his first goals was to reestablish the pipeline from the feeder middle schools to the Hawks. Crawmer wanted to make sure the best of those players didn’t go to private schools, and he hoped that could resurrect the program.

His first challenge was getting Aaron Shoffner.
