Mosey Drevline, Grayslake Central progress


Grayslake Central sophomore point guard Mosey Drevline knows the importance of free throws in the playoffs.

His two older sisters, Rosie and MK, were key players for the Rams, and Mosey Drevine remembers all of their games, especially in the postseason.

“I’ve been coming to games for years to see them,” he said. “It was great to watch them because they are such good players and they taught me how to be a good teammate.

“After watching them win, I really wanted to win, which is why this year was so special.”

2019 graduate Rosie Drevline was among the four champions of the Northern Lake Country Conference. MK Drevine, a 2021 graduate, was a three-year starter and helped the Rams advance to the Class 3A supersectional in 2020.

Now it’s Mosey Drevline’s turn. On Tuesday, he missed three of his six free throw attempts in the final 2:45, but scored eight points and showed strong defense as No. 1-seeded Grayslake Central defeated fourth-seeded Resurrection 59-45 in the Class 3A Antioch Regional semifinals. defeated. .

Young guard/forward Madison Hoffmann Having won 14 matches in a row and ranked 10th, St. The Rams (26-6), who will play against Viator, filled the statistics table with 24 points, 12 rebounds, 5 blocks and 3 assists in a difficult first half. The district championship game is Thursday at 7 p.m. Hoffmann’s sister, freshman guard/forward Peyton, had 11 points and 8 rebounds, and junior guard Annie Wolff had 12 points and 7 rebounds.

Drevline said he’s motivated to do better at the free throw line.

“I just don’t get into it too much,” he said. “I guess it was the heat of the moment, but I’ll do better in the next game.”

Regardless, Drevline injected some much-needed energy into the Rams when he re-entered the game early in the fourth quarter to stop a flurry of turnovers. His speed caused problems for the Bandits (21-11) at both ends of the floor, and he hit a 15-foot field goal to cut the Rams’ lead to 47-40. Grayslake Central scored on eight of its final nine possessions.

“It’s a lot more fun when you bring the energy,” Drevline said. “I just tried to play at a higher tempo, move the ball and help us get the best shot possible.”

Grayslake Central coach Steve Ikenn said his closeness with the Drevline brothers allowed him to promote Mosey Drevline early in his career. He was immediately given the keys to the Rams’ offense in his freshman season.

“Starting quarterback as a freshman is a tough job,” Ikenn said. “He learned from that and did a good job as time went on last year. We talked a lot about the fact that as a quarterback, when you play the schedule we play, you’re going to have some ups and downs.”

Ikenn said that Drevline, who averaged 4.4 points, 2.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.0 steals, was not a flashy player who fascinated his opponents.

“He’s really good at getting us into the flow of things and handles pressure really well,” Ikenn said. “He’s also a pretty good striker, which people don’t realize. He may not score many goals, but he takes important shots and does not hesitate to take important shots. “We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for our quarterback.”

Captain Wolff said Drevline benefited from the Rams’ tough schedule in his first two seasons.

“Mosey is very fast and knows how to read his teammates,” Wolff said. “Playing on these tough teams made him better, and also being able to handle the pressure of being a point guard helped him get into these games at the end of the season.”

Three-year starter Madison Hoffmann, who was named conference player of the year, said Drevline’s consistency was a key reason for the Rams’ success.

“We can always count on Mosey,” Hoffmann said. “He can attract the defense and sees the floor well.”

Drevline said he is excited to add his name to the family’s history with the Rams, whose five-year conference run ends in 2022. Under Drevline’s leadership, Grayslake Central has won two consecutive conference championships.

“That was beautiful,” Drevline said. “My sisters have been great role models for me. I love the game as much as they do. They taught me the importance of teamwork, how to be happy in good moments, not to get too low and to enjoy the team.

“I like the way our season is going.”
