College of the Ozarks’ head men’s basketball coach Steve Shepherd is pleased to announce the recent signing of three new team members: Bryce Duddridge, Sam Chumley, and Elias Werth.

Duddridge hails from Willow Springs, Missouri. Bryce is a versatile 6’2 player, who averaged 16 points per game last year for the Willow Springs Bears. At the end of the season, he was named Honorable Mention All-Conference South Central Association. Bryce is pictured with his parents Justin & Cheri Duddridge and Coach Ryan Bunch.

Chumley heads to CofO from Bryant, Arkansas. Standing at 6’4, Chumley is a true guard, but possesses a multipurpose style, as he has experience defending the post. The former Hornet averaged 8.6 points per game and, at the conclusion of the season, was a 7A All-Central Conference honoree.  Sam is pictured with his parents Richard & Pamela Chumley and Coach Mike Abrahamson.

Werth, a former guard for the Hillsboro High School  (Kan.) Trojans, brings quick defense and hot shooting to the Bobcat squad. Last season, Werth averaged 16.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. At the close of the year, he was awarded All-Conference Central Kansas League and Kansas Class 2A Honorable Mention.  Elias is pictured with his parents Cord & Tesha Worth and Coach Darrel Knoll.

Welcome to the Bobcats, Bryce, Sam, & Elias!
