About  Hopewell Basketball


When talking about the Alton brothers, the term all in the family comes to mind, with the subject of basketball being the topic.

In 2004 Will Alton was a freshman at the Hopewell Central High Schools and picked the number 24 as his basketball jersey for the 4 years. 3 of the years was as a varsity player.   In 2007 Max Alton picked the number 24 as his varsity jersey for 3 years. And now younger brother True has been wearing the number 24 for 2 year as a varsity player. The funny thing was it was all the same uniforms for all 3 brothers. And this year, HBA purchased new home and away uniforms for the boy’s high school team using the HBA grant money. ( More below)
