Berks Catholic's Kingston McKoy talks postgame with SV Sports
Kingston McKoy may be listed as a freshman on Berks Catholic’s roster, but he sure doesn’t play like one. The 6’1 guard provided 15 points off the Saints’ bench in a 53-47 victory over #4 seed Octorara in the District 3-4A semifinals. McKoy has been a defensive specialist for longtime coach Snip Esterly. He picked up career win #791 on Monday at Lloyd Wolf Gymnasium. Top-seeded Berks Catholic trailed 25-24 at halftime. They outscored the Braves 17-7 in a pivotal third quarter. Junior forward Josh McKoy, Kingston’s older brother, got the fans on their feet with a thunderous one-handed dunk before the buzzer. “That was crazy…I was waiting for that all season. Next time it’s gotta be on someone,” joked Kingston. The McKoy brothers have very different personalities. Kingston is much more talkative. “He’s a little quiet. He stays to himself, but he’s one of the funniest people I know,” Kingston said about Josh. JayJay Jordan had a team-high 20 points for the (22-4) Saints. He went 10-15 from the free throw line. Kingston McCoy simply replied, “They could not guard him.” Jordan has 1,181 career points. He’s committed to Wilkes University for football. Senior forward Elijah Hamilton poured in 22 points for the (17-8) Braves. They have qualified for the state tournament. Berks Catholic will meet second-seeded Fleetwood in the District 3-4A championship on Thursday at 12:45pm at the Giant Center. The Saints are looking for their second straight title and fifth overall. Kingston McKoy is thrilled to be playing in Hershey for the first time. SV Sports’ Paul Roberts asked him about his favorite candy.
