Written by Brad Everett on .

Name: R.J. Colabrese
School: North Allegheny
Grade: 12
Sport: Boys Basketball
Position: Guard

Background: A two-year starter at point guard, Colabrese is the facilitator of a North Allegheny attack that averages 71.6 points per game and has been stingy on defense as of late. Colabrese is a pass-first player, but has also proven to be a more-than-capable scorer. He scored 11 points in Saturday’s win at Seneca Valley and 10 in last Tuesday’s win at Shaler. North Allegheny (15-1, 9-1) is in second place in Class AAAA Section 3.

Coach Dave DeGregorio said: “He does a lot for us on the floor, but most importantly are the intangibles His leadership and toughness are critical to our success.”
