GIRARD OH- The NE8 has been wild in boys basketball this season. The chaos is real. We’ve seen teams near the bottom of the standings beat the teams near the top. Every game ever night seems to be decided by one possession. With all the chaos, the teams that consistently succeed are the ones with the leaders who can keep it cool. Girard has one of those in Thomas Cardiero.
Cardiero has always been a premiere player of not just the conference, but also the entire coverage map. This season however, his attitude, and work ethic has taken Girard to the next level. They’ve been consistently in the top tier of the NE8 conference. The example that Cardiero has set for the roster has turned the Indians into a deep team that has multiple weapons to beat you. It is that leadership, and that talent that has risen Cardiero and his teammates to the place they’re at.
Cardiero took the time to sit down with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig about his senior campaign. They discuss his family legacy at Girard, what his relationship with his teammates is like, and much more. Check out the latest Girard Basketball Player Profile only on YSN!
