NEW HAVEN, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Much of New Haven High School's school year--from the classroom to gridiron to hardwood--has been an experiment.

Paul Harding High School closed in June, sending students throughout the East Allen County Schools district. Most transfers moved to New Haven; becoming Bulldogs while retaining a "Hurricane Hawks" rallying to represent their high school experience.

The boys basketball program has benefitted from the influx of Harding talent. The pure talent of forward V.J. Beachem, the toughness of players like center Kyle Sovine and the tenacity of head coach Al Gooden makes the Dawgs a team to watch in the postseason. And a rematch with Homestead could be on the horizon.

Beachem, who scored 28 points in a win over Adams Central Friday night, joins Tommy Schoegler and AWP Director of Operations Scott Zeigler to talk about how this year's New Haven Bulldogs have gelled together.
