D. Russell (Franklin Prep): There is something to be said, in a game like this, when one just doesn't give up and competes. That is something that I will take every day on the court and that is what he did. He pushed the ball well, found teammates, and looked to attack when the opportunity was there.
2021 Carl Thorpe (Rabun Gap): In limited action, Thorpe was strong on the offensive end with his long body. The forward moved well in that paint and showcased his bounce and athleticism, flying through the air and finishing at the rim.
2023 Domas Kauzonas (Rabun Gap): A young big that has promise in his game. He is agile on the court, can make an impact on both ends of the floor, and has an early soft touch around the rim. Good size big that could continue to progress in his game.
