Portsmouth Trojans 2018-2019 Preview

The 2018-2019 Portsmouth Trojans will return only 1 starter from last year's 16-8 team, that being 6-2 JR Matthew Fraulini. Fraulini averaged 14 PPG as a sophomore, and looks to upgrade his PPG average this season. He will have 4 new starters to help him do that. The rest of the starting 5 most likely will be 6-3 SR MyQuel McKinley, 6-0 SR Daniel Lattimore, 6-2 SO Miles Shipp, and 5-8 FR Amare Johnson. This starting 5 could very well be the quickest starting unit in Coach Eugene Collins 10 years as head coach of PHS.
