It isn’t hard to miss John Olmsted when he takes the floor with his Morenci High teammates or even when he’s walking the streets of his tiny copper mining town in eastern Arizona. Standing 6-feet-10, Olmsted is starting to pop up on college radars since joining his Powerhouse Hoops Tucson club team two years ago.
“It’s been fun because I get to play with better coaches, better players,” Olmsted said to Sports360AZ.com. “To play at that high level…being from a small school I don’t always get that competition. Being able to go out and play better teams it’s a lot better.”
A Valley native, Eric has had a passion for the Arizona sports scene since an early age. He has covered some of the biggest events including Super Bowls, national championships and the NBA and MLB playoffs in his near 20 years in local media.
