Pella Christian boys’ basketball junior, Jason Holwerda, saw significant playing time as a starter at the beginning of the season. Holwerda started every game for the Eagles before the Christmas break, and then was delegated a bench role after struggling on offense. It took a few games for him to adjust, but once he accepted the position, Holwerda started to shine and score some points from beyond the arc for Pella Christian. Coach Larry Hessing says the junior had a light bulb go on at some point which helped him light it up from downtown. Hessing adds that Holwerda was also a very good defender and he was frequently called upon off the bench down the stretch in games to come up with steals or stops on defense.
