Forsyth Country Day has been a strong program over the years and has had plenty of talent in years past, but it may have taken just a bit more experience to achieve the ultimate goal.  In years past, this was a team that certainly had the talent to make a run, but it seemed to come all together this year with a bit more experience and a few key seniors who stepped up.

Starting the season, especially in several Phenom Hoops events, it was the seniors of 2024 Bobby Cannon, 2024 Draven Pilson, and 2024 Iverson King; one could see that this trio had a mindset and was looking to make a point that this was a team that could be one of the top teams in the state.  They had a different mindset, they competed at a high level, and they had that winning mentality that allowed them to flourish throughout the year.

But, one thing that was made for sure was that this was a team that had plenty of weapons and you could see growth in the players. 2024 Jahon Foster, 2026 Q Williams, 2027 JR Adams, and others stepped up all season long, bringing a balanced attack inside and out along with length that simply made this team tough throughout. One can see just how strong this team is and how far they had come over the season, embracing each other, feeding off each other, and allowing one another to step up when called upon. In the state championship game against Gaston Christian, it was Foster who led the charge and came up huge in the championship game with 20 points, while Williams also had a strong game among others. But again, this was a team mentality throughout the season, and there were some ups and downs. But, in the end, it all came together, and the Furies were able to walk away with a state title.
