Hews stands at 5 feet 3 inches tall.

He explained that his Red Riot teammates are a great group of players that he enjoys competing with.

Hews is always ready to contribute against taller opposition.

“They’ve helped me gain a lot of confidence. They keep pushing me and tell me stuff I need to do and work on. They push me to my limits every practice and game. It’s pretty cool because when I get in the game, (my opponents) don’t expect me to be that great, but I just do what I do best and just play,” said Hews.

Hews will be helping Orono in its effort to return to the Class B North Championship, where the team fell to Ellsworth last year.

The Red Riots are hosting the Foxcroft Academy Ponies on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
