Ryle High School big man Bobby Stauffer recently led his team to the District Championship over Boone County and now is playing in the Regional Tournament hoping to lead his team to Rupp Arena for the Sweet Sixteen. Stauffer is also trying to decide where he will play his college ball next year.

Stauffer who is averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds per game is getting interest from Transylvania, Thomas More, Ohio Dominican, Maryville, and Hanover College. Of this mixture of Division II and Division III schools, Stauffer said he feels Division II Ohio Dominican and Division III Maryville are recruiting him the hardest.

Stauffer said his strengths to this point would be, "the fact I don't back down from any other player in the post, my toughness, and my rebounding." Stauffer said the coaches like his ability to play down low or stretch the defense with his shooting ability. Stauffer is continuing to work on his shooting ability from the perimeter to make the biggest impact at the next level.

The 6-7 Stauffer is going to sign in the spring and his dad will be helping him with his decision. He plays for the Northern Kentucky Bulldogs AAU team. Stauffer and the Ryle Raiders will be back in action on Saturday night at The Bank of Kentucky Center at NKU for the second round of the 9th region tournament against Newport Central Catholic and another talented big Jake Giesler at 6 pm.
