Player: Jahreece Lynch
High School: North Surry
As only a freshman, Lynch was incredibly productive, leading the team in a few categories. He played in 27 games this past season, averaging 15.9 points, 2.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.1 steals per game while shooting 42 percent from the floor and also knocking down 33 3-pointers. Lynch started the season with eight straight double-digit performances and had a season-high 37 points in a win vs. Carver.
Coach’s Thoughts (Tyler Bentley):
“For a first-year varsity player in an extremely tough league, Jahreece rose to the occasion and became one of the top players in the conference. He has a tremendously high basketball IQ and a great work ethic and attitude. His combination of strength and athleticism coupled with his ability to finish at the rim makes him a matchup problem for many players. He also developed a consistent mid-range game that allows him to pull up over smaller defenders. His instincts and communication on the defensive end allowed him to be one of the better defensive players on our team. Jahreece was always on the floor in big games and was not afraid of the big moments. A good student in the classroom and respected by his teachers, coaches, and peers.
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“Lynch plays with serious swagger, he’s confident with the rock in his hands. At this stage Lynch is more of a scoring guard, Lynch can shoot it from deep finish going either direction. Lynch also flashed a nice mid-range game, an area that’s becoming a lost art with some of today’s young guards.” – Brandon Blakney in April 2019
