Hatch was cleared to practice this fall but hasn’t been practicing in full quite yet. The News Sentinel looks at his Canterbury team and his role:
Perhaps the biggest one is Austin Hatch, the junior who is still recovering physically and otherwise from a plane crash in June 2011 that seriously injured him and killed his father and stepmother. After being granted another year of eligibility by the IHSAA, Hatch has been taking it slow, taking part in some practice drills, but he is not ready to return to the basketball court again.
It appears to be a day-to-day thing with Hatch, who would just be the icing on the cake on a roster that has a lot of balance.
