The Josh Streit file

  • Name: Josh Streit
  • School: Eden Valley-Watkins
  • Class: Junior
  • Honors: Breakdown Top 75 juniors
  • Coach comment: "Josh made a big step forward from freshman to sophomore year, and i am expecting the same coming into his junior year. Josh can play inside or outside, making him a very difficult matchup for any team we play this winter. If Josh works hard and continues to progress, he could be one of the top players in the area." — Eden Valley-Watkins coach Adam Langer

Q and A

Give me a short scouting report on yourself as a player. What are your strengths?

  • I can play inside and out. I can shoot and dribble but the best part about my game is my passing. I always try to make the extra pass and the right pass. I also can block shots and play good back side defense.

Can you tell us one unusual thing about yourself that others may not know?

  • I live on a farm with about 400 beef cattle.

What's the best part of playing high school basketball and why?

  • I love being in the gym playing ball with my friends. Also I love playing hard and competing against good completion.

Tell me about the outlook for your team this year. What are the strengths of your team?

  • We will be a pretty spread out team. We will be a nightmare match up with our starting five all over 6'0". Our good fundamental defense and being able to change in between zones and man will be a big factor for us.

What other activities are you involved in at the high school level?

  • Basketball, football, Student Council, and Investment Club.

What type of training do you do in the offseason?

  • I play AAU basketball, summer high school league, and summer workouts.
