AKRON OH- Archbishop Hoban High School has a long and illustrious history of many great names
that have walked the halls of “The Castle” that sits on One Holy Cross Boulevard. Sports and success seemingly go hand-in-hand at Hoban, with multiple stats championships across a large variety of sports, primarily in the last ten years! Boys basketball got to enjoy a taste of the top when they completed a Cinderella story run to capture the Division 1 State Championship, the smallest D-1 school to do so.

However, in both recent, as well as, historic success for boys basketball at Hoban, there was never a Knight that stayed a Knight through the highest honor of going to West Point Military Academy and becoming a Black Knight! Hoban senior Josh Greer will be the first basketball player to blaze a trail to that next level when he has the opportunity to play football for Army.

It’s more than just sports for Josh Greer, it is about creating a legacy that generations of his family can be proud of. With a long history of community service and service in general with Hoban, Josh Greer sees it as taking it a step further, to serve at the highest possible level. Coming from a fantastic family, known for their love of athletics, The Army-Navy Game will now carry a little more meaning throughout the Greer household.

As The Knights basketball team navigates their way through the playoffs this year, it has a different feeling for Greer, knowing that anytime he laces up the Nikes, it could be his last. But staying in the moment is something Josh has excelled at since day one at Hoban and as he an the other Knights seniors lead their squad into districts, The Knights hope the postseason magic returns for one final run! YSNs Ty Bartell got the opportunity to talk with Josh Greer about the Hoban experience, winning a state championship, playing with his brother
