HUNTINGTON — Huntington Prep’s Montaque Gill-Caesar considers Kansas phenom Andrew Wiggins to be family.
That doesn’t mean Gill-Caesar wants to be the next Andrew Wiggins, though.
Instead, he wants to be ‘the first Teki’, which is his nickname. This summer, he’s doing a pretty good job of promoting his own brand name.
“I know the comparisons are there because we've taken the same route thus far, but in the same breath, I’m trying to make a name for myself and just be my own player,” Gill-Caesar said on Tuesday.

The scrimmage was close throughout and needed overtime to determine a winner.
