Tyler Zampa has played for one high school team and three different coaches in his varsity basketball career, but he is in agreement about all of them.
“They are all great coaches,” said Zampa, a Hinsdale South senior from Burr Ridge.
He is the only member of the Hornets to have played for three coaches in three years. A reserve the past two years, the 6-foot-5 forward has developed into a starter for first-year coach Brett Moore.
Zampa scored just one point in Hinsdale South’s 53-43 overtime loss at Oak Park-River Forest Saturday, but has developed into a leading rebounder. With a three-guard lineup, Zampa and 6-9 sophomore Barret Benson receive the bulk of the minutes in the Hornets’ frontcourt. Orlando Brown, a 6-4 senior, has been the first forward off the bench after transferring from Power House of the Chicago Public League.
