EUGENE, Ore. - The point guard on a basketball team is the floor general, the leader, and an extension of the head coach.

Sheldon High School head boys basketball coach Daniel Clark says his point guard, Nick Nestell, is no different, embodying each of those characteristics.

The Sheldon Irish are 15-4 this season and ranked fourth in the state.

Nestell said he relishes the competition night in and night out.

On and off the court, Clark describes Nestell as a quiet leader and an ideal player to build a program around.

Ultimately, Nestell wants to win and says it's going to take ultimate focus to make a deep run in the playoffs.
