PIoneer Athlete Spotlight on Mezziah OakmanSchool: Mt. Diablo High, Grade: Junior, Sport: Basketball

Mt. Diablo High boys basketball had been on the upswing the past two seasons under guidance of coach Ejon Felder. That trajectory took on an even higher direction when 7-foot junior transfer Oakman joined the team in December. Felder says the mobile big man “has the ability to play on the block and from the perimeter. A big man with great shooting touch and a lot of upside. He is a great shot blocker that can really rebound.” Originally from New York, Oakman “takes being a student athlete very seriously” his coach adds.

He’s been averaging close to a triple double since he donned the Red Devils uniform The team was on a three-game winning streak entering this week in the Diablo Athletic League, where they stood third in the standings having won eight of their past 12 games overall after opening the season with one win in 12 games. Felder sums up his new player: “He continues to get better and has taken on a leadership role on our team. He is a division one [college] prospect with a bright career ahead of him. The sky is the limit for Mezziah.”

The Pioneer congratulates Mezziah and thanks Athlete Spotlight sponsors Dr. Laura Lacey & Dr. Christopher Ruzicka who have been serving the Clayton and Concord area for 25 years at Family Vision Care Optometry, www.laceyandruzicka.com
