Blaine Taylor On Hassell: "Frank is a good story about the human condition. Frank was full of potential, met the game in his path to graduation with open eyes, ears and heart about becoming the best he could become. If you look at his path, Frank has had some of his best moments. Being MVP of the Title game as a sophomore, and integral part of post season success as a junior. I believe in his senior year we will be able to depend on him in many different respects. Frank will give us a presence in the paint that helps define who we are."
