Honena Edmo plays forward for Century

Sho-Ban News
POCATELLO — Bert Honena Edmo is a starting forward on the Century Diamondbacks boy’s basketball team.
The team lost to the Hillcrest Knights 71 to 56, December 11 but Coach Lester Stewart said their goal is to qualify for the state playoffs and win a 4A championship.
“We know the road won’t be easy but as long as we have faith, work hard and stick together we can and will accomplish that goal.”
Stewart said Bert had stepped in and been a key contributor on the team this season so far, “His shooting ability and toughness can help us go a long way.”
Bert says it’s all good playing for Century, “It’s a great school and I can call it home.” He decided to transfer from Blackfoot High School to have a better opportunity at sports for his remaining two years and learning wise.
“My goals for Century basketball are make it to state and making it to the top,” Bert continued. “Enjoying my next two years here to give it all I got on and off the court.”
He added Coach Stewart is wise in his actions and the basketball program.
Both Stewart and assistant coach Juan Rodriguez are former Sho-Ban High School basketball coaches. Stewart said being the coach at Century is definitely something he is blessed and grateful to have. “I also know that I will continually have to work hard for our program to have success.” “I’d also like to thank Sho-Ban and Aberdeen High Schools for preparing me for this job – without the lessons I learned there I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in now.”
