He averaged 5.2 rebounds per game and shot 50.3 percent from the field. He hit 76.9 percent of his free throws.

@John. Knock it off. You know good and well what you intended when you wrote your first comment. To make the premise that you intended to educate and further mine for more information is absurd. Just know that when you were called a hurtful name all those months ago you did not like it. You still bring it up. It is comments like the one at the top that make people think you are not being a nice person online. Perhaps you truly did intend to initiate a dialog so we could all learn more about Josh, but I don't think that was your intent.

Billy Pilgrim - agreed! John is clearly an angry, miserable, nasty individual, as evidenced by his hundreds of negative posts on Patch. On a positive note - congratulations to Josh! That is a great accomplishment, and one that he, and the residents of Cinnaminson, should be proud of! Always wonderful to hear stories of hometown kids who go on to great things!

U guys are really something, I am not negative all the freaking time....I make a comment and U guys just jump on the band wagon....I am not angry, miserable nor a nasty person but some out there just like to start trouble....U tell me what good are the stats that were quoted and how can U compare schools and divisions without some facts...the article is good for getting attention from who not schools but scouts right so U guys had better get a life and know that the article is stating just that....good luck in reading what U want...
