Perham Public Schools Activities Director Erin Anderson announced Kyle Haberman will be named the new Head Boys Basketball Coach, pending school board approval. Haberman will take over for longtime head coach Dave Cresap, who resigned after 28 years at the helm to coach at Minnesota State Fergus Falls.
Dave Cresap, a celebrated longtime coach of high school boys basketball in Minnesota and North Dakota, is taking his talents to a college court: Cresap has been hired as the new head coach of the M State Spartans men’s basketball team.
Best known for his award-winning 28-year coaching career with the Perham Yellowjackets, Cresap’s record in Minnesota includes five state tournament appearances (between 2011 and 2022) and more than 660 wins – the eighth-most career victories of any boys basketball coach in the state – including 10 conference championships.
The 2022-2023 All-Heart-O’ Lakes Conference Boys’ Basketball Team has been announced. The HOL coaches vote on the team with each coach voting for twelve player that are not on their own team. The coaches also vote on the MVP, casting votes for their top three candidates, in order, again not including their own players. For the second year in a row, DGF senior Owen Leach has been named the Most Valuable Player in the HOL. Leach led his team to a fourth place finish in the Class AA State Tournament this past weekend.
