Josh Greer, three-sport Goshen star, has signed a letter-of-intent to continue his education and basketball career at Miami University-Middletown.

Greer earned eight varsity letters at Goshen – football (three), basketball (two), tennis (two), and track and field (one). The Southwest District basketball all-star led Clermont County in scoring his senior year and was named the Southern Buckeye Conference American Division Player of the Year. He was voted the Warriors’ best offensive player and most valuable player. He had the best winning percentage on the tennis team this year and had previously earned an award for most improved player in tennis.

“I like the Miami-Middletown style of basketball and I like the coach,” said Greer, who will be majoring in some field of communications.

A pair of senior season basketball games stand out in his mind as highlights of his prep career.

"The game at Northeastern this year was the best night we ever had playing as a team. It was the night we clinched the league...We played Bethel on our senior night. We were four points down with just thirty seconds left (in regulation time) and we came back and the game went into overtime and we won."

He was considered by this writer as the most exciting basketball player he has seen in Clermont County in several years.

Greer is appreciative of the help he has received during his prep career.

(Basketball) coach (Scott) Wake helped me get through a lot of tough times and helped me develop as a brother Nick got me into sports."

Wake said of his star cager, "He's come a long way as a player and as a person. He has fulfilled all of my expectations.

Lisa Butler praised her cousin Josh. "He's overcome many hurdles in his life. My husband, Rod, and I are very proud of him. He's been a treat for us. "We'll be supporting him through his college career. . . He made a good decision for college. He can get a good education and play basketball."
