    The End of the Brian Horn Era

    A three-year varsity player, Brian Horn has just about done it all. Help lead the Cowboys as a starter in his junior and senior season? Check. Hit a thrilling buzzer-beater to send the Cowboys to Rutgers to play in the state championship game? Check. Overcome an injury to hit another buzzer-beater to beat Old Tappan in the Bergen Jamboree Tournament? Check. Named all-county? Been there, done that.

    It would be an understatement to say that Brian had an incredible career at Pascack Hills. Next year, however, he will be taking his talents to Trinity College to play Division III basketball. Recently, I had the chance to sit down with Brian and reflect on his last three years playing for the Cowboys as well as look to his future at Trinity.


    Looking back on your Hills career, how would you describe your overall experience on the Cowboys?

    It has truly been an amazing experience. As a Cowboy, I’ve fortunately been able to play for Coach Kirkby, one of the best coaches in Bergen County, and was lucky enough to play on three great teams while winning three straight state sectional championships. I don’t think it could have been any better.


    Which season was most memorable?

    I would probably say that my junior year season was the most memorable. We were able to play at Rutgers (RAC) in the first group final in our school’s history, which was pretty surreal.


    What is your fondest memory of your high school basketball career?

    My fondest memory was the state group semifinals against Ridgefield Park during my junior season. I stole the ball and made a buzzer-beating layup to advance to the group final. Helping the team advance to our school’s first group final in our history was a feeling I will never forget.


    What will you miss most about playing for the Cowboys?

    Just being a part of the team. The camaraderie on each team was really special and every season we truly became a family that really cared for each other.


    Why did you choose to play ball at Trinity College?

    I felt that Trinity was just a great fit for me. The academics, location, and basketball quality seemed to suit me perfectly.


    How do you feel about your future playing at Trinity College?

    I am really excited! I think the future is bright at Trinity and believe that we have the potential to win a DIII National Championship. I’m just going to try and help the team win as much as possible.


    Thanks so much Brian for all you’ve done for the Pascack Hills basketball program and best of luck at the college level!
