Dan Eberhardt
James Josephson

Pair sign with universities

Grossmont College Head Coach Doug Weber was proud to announce that two players from the 2009-10 roster have signed with four-year universities.

Point guard Dan Eberhardt and forward James Josephson will continue the tradition of Griffins advancing their academic and playing careers at the University level.

Eberhardt, a 6'1 guard signed with Cal Maritime. He earned All-PCAC Honorable Mention honors and led Grossmont in points (216), assists (62) and steals (48) this past season. Dan will earn his AA degree this spring with a 3.1 GPA. "He has great leadership skills to go along with his tremendous work ethic," said Weber.

"He played every position we asked him to and was the ultimate team guy. He's going to a good program led by an outstanding coach, Bryan Rooney. Cal Maritime won their league this year and looks to make a strong run to the National tournament this upcoming season."

Josephson, a 6-9 forward from Patrick Henry, has signed a National letter of Intent with Hawaii Pacific University.

"This is a great story of working hard, staying the course and trusting that everything will work out," said Weber.

James was cut from his high school team and redshirted his first year at Grossmont College. His first season of play he came off the bench and was one of the teams leading three point shooters and led the team in blocked shots. He put on good weight this summer and had a really good summer at both showcase events in Los Angeles.

Things were looking up until he broke his hand in December. He played only two games after the break and a total of 9 games for the entire season.

"He has a great upside and has come so far from his freshman year he has really worked on his body and game and I believe his best basketball is yet to come. James has the length and ball skills to play inside and also on the perimeter. This combination of height and skill is what attracted HPU Head Coach Daren Vordebregge."

Hawaii Pacific finished the season with 19 wins and a third place finish in the Pacific West conference.
