Dansville High School freshman Hayden Voss is a big supporter of the Michigan State men’s basketball program.
His favorite player …
“(Lourawls) ‘Tum Tum’ Nairn,” said Voss, whose the starting point guard on the Aggies’ junior varsity team. “He’s around my height, not super big, but he’s doing it big at Michigan State.”
Nairn, however, isn’t known for his flashy plays. But MSU senior standout Denzel Valentine is, and that’s who Voss looked like when he dished a behind-the-head pass in last week’s 75-22 win over Springport.
The dime was voted the LSJ prep video of the week.
“I’ve been trying to do more cool passes,” Voss said. “I mess around at practice and happened to do it in a game.
“The crowd was going ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh.’ That was the best part.”
Voss, who is averaging about 14 points and five assists per game, has been a key piece for the Aggies’ junior varsity team, which is off to an 8-1 start to the season. Dansville’s varsity team is also 8-1 and is in a two-way tie for first place in the Central Michigan Athletic Conference.
Voss said he’s noticed a shift in the school’s basketball program over the past couple of seasons.
“Our whole program is doing really well right now,” he said. “The basketball program is going uphill.”
