De’Angelo Rhone works his way up



After graduation, however, Rhone’s plans become far more unsure. He said he might go to college, but he hasn’t started applying to schools, nor has he decided on a major.

Rhone might be leaning towards the social sciences, as he said his favorite class at MHS has been a government class taught by Buffs assistant coach Ryan Walters.

“He’s a good teacher, and he makes sure everything gets to us, and I just love history,” Rhone said.

Rhone said his dream school is Oklahoma State University in Stillwater. But if he doesn’t go to college next year, he might instead work for his father LeNard Rhone at Rhone Insurance Agency in McAlester.

“I used to work for him during the summer, so I have some experience,” Rhone said of his father’s agency. “I was filing stuff for him, typing stuff into the computer.”

It’s taken Rhone four years to earn his playing time, but he’s finally earned his place on McAlester’s varsity squad.

Whatever next year may bring, Rhone seems fully grounded in this current basketball season.
