Senior Profile: Bryson McFall
In Feb. 25 Issue

Bryson McFall is the point guard for the Laker basketball team this season and behind his heady and passionate play along with his floor burns, Russell County is having one of its best season's in recent memory.

One can generally find Bryson diving on the floor after loose balls or battling inside against much larger players but that shows the type of player and teammate that Bryson McFall is, he will do anything to help his team win.

He can hit big shots and has hit many 3-point baskets in his career from well beyond NBA 3-point range.

But as his final season winds down, McFall looks back on the fun and good times of being a high school basketball player in Russell County.

“It took a lot of practice but it was well worth it,” he said.

McFall then recalled the Warren Central game last season when underdog Russell County defeated the 4th region favorite Dragons by a score of 65-57 in the opening round of region play at Western Kentucky University's E.A. Diddle Arena.

McFall played superb for the Lakers that night, scoring 17 points on 6-7 shooting for the Lakers and picked up the game's most valuable player award.

Part of Bryson's development can be credited to coach Willie Feldhaus, who has coached the graduating seniors all four of their high school years.

“He's a real good coach and he means a lot to us,” McFall said.

McFall also credited his parents, Ronnie McFall and Kim McBeath, for being there for him at all his games.

“They never miss a game and I'm thankful for that,” he said.

McFall said this year's senior class is very close to one another and hang out with one another off the court as well.

McFall, who began playing the game in local youth leagues, said when basketball season is over he will miss the experience of game day and all the support from the fans over his career.

But when this year is over, McFall can say he helped lead a resurgence for Laker basketball and put the program on the right path.
