Hillgrove Hawks Host Cobb County 2022 Basketball Media Day

The 2022-2023 Georgia High School Association basketball season is officially under way as the first week of practice is in the books for teams all throughout the state. On Saturday, the Hillgrove Hawks basketball programs hosted the annual Cobb County Athletics Basketball media day as teams from the metro Atlanta County made their way to Powder Springs giving media outlets a chance to speak with coaches and players from the teams in attendance.

“Cobb County still has some of the best basketball in Georgia,” Hillgrove Hawks men’s basketball head coach, Gregory Moultrie said of the media day which “highlights” the teams from the area. “I’m glad we get to shine light on the county,” Moultrie added. And with their first games just a couple of weeks away, coaches and players talked about the excitement of returning to action for the new season. “We had a great summer. It was probably one of the best summers that we’ve had,” Pope Greyhounds women’s basketball head coach, Bill Blythe said as he reflected on watching his team work during the offseason to prepare for the 2022-2023 season.

“They just get after it and they share and they care about each other and the relationships they have with one another on and off the court, it’s going to take them a long way,” Blythe said about his players adding that he believes opposing teams will find it “challenging” to guard his players, who he says are all “interchangeable” and that is a positive for the Greyhounds. The Kennesaw Mountain Mustangs women’s basketball team was also on hand with new head coach, Chatil Bradford Cotton, who’s time over the summer with her team included getting to know her players in addition to getting them ready for the season.

“This has been a world of difference for me,” Bradford-Cotton, the former lead assistant for the University of West Georgia Wolves women’s basketball team, said of her transition to taking over the Mustangs’ program. “Being at the college level the last eight years, I’ve always been able to choose my players, but coming into this particular situation, my players chose me and I will say, I’ve loved every player that has come. It’s so different, but I love it because I have so much more touch with them,” Bradford-Cotton said of the ability to have more interactions with her players throughout the day and not just when they are in the gym.
