Appleby: Young star in making
In 2010, no one would’ve guessed that the firing of the Bulldogs’ basketball head coach would lead to such a quick rise in the program.
The addition of head coach Michael White was a great start, but it was his recruitment of young guard Raheem Appleby that turned the program around.
Young Appleby started to become noticed during his illustrious career at Jacksonville High School in Arkansas, where he averaged 26 points and was named All-State twice.
White said he couldn’t pass up Appleby’s undeniable ability to score, as he could see Appleby holding a prominent position on the team.
