Tom "Sky" Skibosh covers the Wauwatosa, Brookfield and New Berlin prep scene for Community Newspapers. If something is going on in local sports, Sky has an opinion about it. If you agree or not with what Sky says, we want to see your comments.
When someone says Wauwatosa West senior guard Andy Minkley was the total package, they were not kidding. Not only on the court, but off it as well. Minkley, one of the key players on this season's Trojan team, had one of the prettiest outside shots in the area. He also imporved tremendously on the defensive end.
Minkley was recently nominated to the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association Academic All-State Team, one of 15 players selected from a group of 65 all-conference players from across the state in recognition for excellence both on and off the court.
He has a 3.98 grade-point average, ranks seventh in his class, is a member of the National Honors Society, was a Woodland Conference Scholar-Athlete, a Woodland Conference scholar and a Brady Academic All-Star. He was also a member of the conference championship match team.
He will be attending the University of Wisconsin in the fall.
Nice going Andy.
First Joe Thomas took the NFL by storm, starting at left tackle for the Cleveland Browns. Now Nick Urban, former Winona State tackle, has agreed to a contract with the Minnesota Vikings. A 6-4, 305 pounds, Urban made an impression at the Vikings recent tryout camp. What's in the water at Brookfield Central.
Wauwatosa West will have tryouts for the summer basketball league for girls entering seventh, eighth and ninth-grades in the fall. Tosa West girls coach Mike Pietrowiak will hold the tryouts from 7-8:30 p.m. at Tosa West High School.
