Men’s Basketball adds Colorado senior to 2014 recruiting class

Matt Sanders signs to play basketball for Hesston College.

Hesston College men’s basketball coach Dustin Galyon announces Matthew Sanders, a 5’10” guard from Cheyenne Wells (Colo.) High School, as the newest member of the Larks program. 

A four-year starter and 2013-14 first-team all-state player, Sanders was named MVP for Cheyenne Wells High after averaging just less than 20 points per game.

A four-year Principal’s Honor Roll member, Sanders will study aviation at Hesston.

“Matt will be a great addition to our campus and basketball program,” Galyon said. “He’s been a leader in his community, school and basketball team. Matt has the ability to shoot the basketball at a high level and that’s something our team needs.”

Sanders is the son of Mark and Diane Sanders, Towner, Colo. He attends First Baptist Church, Eads, Colo.
