Negaunee Miner Eric Lori plans on following Coach Mike Oâ??Donnell as he has committed to continue his education and basketball career at Finlandia University starting in the 2014-2015 season.
â??I feel he Eric may have gotten over looked a bit by bigger colleges because of his height,â?? said Coach Mike Oâ??Donnell.
Lori is a 5â??9â?? guard averaged 16.3 points per game and 3.3 rebounds per game in his senior season for Negaunee. He was also named to the 2014 Mid Peninsula All-Conference 1st Team and the 2014 All-UP 1st Team Class ABC. Along with that, Eric helped lead the Miners to back to back Class C Semi-Final berths.
â??Eric is a gym rat, a great student, and a kid who will do whatever it takes to win,â?? Oâ??Donnell said. â??Iâ??m very excited to get him in our program and have the opportunity to continue to work with him.â??
