The Charles Henderson varsity boys basketball team didn’t get much of a holiday break this season. Playing some of their best basketball of the season, the Trojans will start play in the Hilton Sandestin Beach Blowout.

The Trojans will be one of 16 teams to make the trek to Freeport, Florida. The teams will come from all over the southeast to compete in the five-day event.

“We’re going to Freeport and we’ll see teams from Georgia and Tennessee,” Head coach Doug Branson said. “Kentucky will be down there with Alabama schools and Florida schools. There is no telling who we are going to run into down there.”
