2022 Boys Tennis Preview: Jim Thorpe HS

Jim Thorpe

Head Coach: Sam Lux (2nd year)

Sport: Tennis (B)

Team Name: Jim Thorpe High School

League: N/A

2021 Record: 10-5

Key Players Lost:
Connor Rodgers #1 Singles, Daniel Teets #2 Singles
Michael Carroll #1 Doubles

Key Returning Players:

Brendan McDermott, Senior, 2021 – #3 singles, Projected 2022 – #1 Singles

“McDermott is very solid and is a returning singles player. It will be an adjustment going from #3 singles where he had some success to #1 Singles, but Brendan has great work ethic and attitude which should help him pull out some tough matches.”

Samuel Seachrest, Sophomore, 2021 – #1 Doubles, Projected 2022 – #2 or #3 Singles

“Seachrest is very athletic and is picking up on the technical side of tennis very quickly. I’m excited to see how he adjusts from playing doubles last year to being one of our singles players this year.”

Haven Johnson, Senior, 2021 – #2 Doubles, Projected #2 or #3 Singles

“Johnson is a lefty who has great topspin and control on his groundstrokes and is starting to develop strong pacing to his shots which should help him be more aggressive in match play than in previous seasons. ”

Jayden Chambers, Junior, 2021 – #2 Doubles, Projected #1 Doubles

“Chambers was new to tennis last year but has shown great improvement in very little time. He is also a soccer player, so he brings great natural footwork and speed to his game. As the technical side develops, he will be increasingly difficult to beat.”

Key Newcomers:
Evan Rosenbrook, Freshman, Projected 2022 – #1 Doubles

2022 Outlook:

Strengths: “Returning a singles player with strong game, and new players who are learning quickly.”

Question Marks: “Need additional numbers to fill out roster as well as majority of players are newcomers – so progress will be key.”
