The Journey of Isiah “Zay” Boice 


Hailey Gonzales, Feature Writer

I recently had the opportunity to start a three part interview with Isiah “Zay” Boice. Isiah Boice is a varsity player for the New Castle Hurricanes. This year I will be following the journey of Isiah throughout his freshman basketball season.  After this initial interview, I will interview him in the middle of the season, and at the end of season to see how he changes as a player and a person. -Hailey
