Earlier this month, Coach Rich McGillis’ 2026 All H.E.A.R.T. Basketball squad rode a 5-0-weekend record to an Ohio AAU State Championship. According to McGillis, the team’s success was the result of “fundamentals, solid defense and the player’s willingness to play as a team and share the ball.”
With a roster made up of three top 20 players, All H.E.A.R.T. has established a national reputation and a bright future. “We have high hopes for next year and should be top 10 (nationally) next season,” said McGillis. All HEART’s starting 5 players include: Athens McGillis (5’4”/PG/2026/Mainville); Cooper McCutchen (6’0”/PF/2026/Lebanon); Tyson Davis (5’8”/CG/2026/Liberty TWP); Donavan Bradshaw (6’2”/C/2026/Northern KY) and Sam Hamilton (6’1”/PF/2026/Milford).
Although Coach McGillis’ team has wrapped up their 2020 season, they continue you find competition where they can. In fact, All H.E.A.R.T. is currently competing in the 8th/9th grade division of the SW Ohio Fall League, where they are off to a 2-0 start. When we release our 2021 Power Rankings in the spring, look for McGillis’ team to be near the top. Congrats to Coah McGillis, his players and fans for a job well done!
