This past weekend, Perry Countian Noah Back participated in the “Battle of the Bridges,” a Kentucky vs. Indiana all-star game for 7th graders. Back was one of only eight players from around the state invited to participate.

The Kentucky all-stars opened the game strong and quickly took the double-digit lead. They would not look back as they defeated the Indiana all-stars by the final count of 57-34.

Back had an excellent game, scoring the first six points of the game and finishing with 13 points total. He added six rebounds, five steals, and five assists while hitting four shots from behind the arc and one of two from the free throw line.

Noah is the son of Angie and Bill Back of Vicco, and will be a 7th grader at R. W. Combs next year.
