ESKO, Minnesota (KARE) - One would think nothing big ever happens in tiny Esko, Minnesota. But that would be wrong.
At the only four-way stop in town sits the home of the Eskimos, and a tall tale you have to see to believe. Her name is Savanna Trapp and at 6-foot-9 she stands out on the basketball court. Savanna's believed to be the tallest girls basketball player ever in Minnesota, and one of the tallest in the country this season.
For 6'9", she has good feet around the basket and the ability to finish. At a recent game against Floodwood, she scored a season-high 30 points. Her teammates did a great of of feeding her the ball. Try as they might, the defense couldn't stop her.
But it's on defense where Savanna may be most intimidating. Imagine driving the lane and seeing Savanna waiting to swat your shot. She said she enjoys blocking shots even more than scoring points.
"Just the look on the opponent's face, 'Did that just happen?' look," she said with a smile.
