6’8 2019 Justin McKoy: Panther Creek High School (Penn State Commit)

McKoy has established himself as one of the top players in the region over the course of his high school career, and he got his senior season started off on the right foot last night with a 30 piece on the road, in a come from behind win over Broughton.  He did it in an efficient manor, shooting well over 50% from the field, and flat out took the game over in the 2nd half when he was in pure attack mode, scoring 23 of his 30 points in that frame.  The young man has consistently improved over his four years at Panther Creek, and should continue to do so when he gets to Penn State.  Check McKoy out at Hoops & Dreams this weekend in Fayetteville!

6’3 2021 Daylen Berry: Panther Creek High School

Berry is a name that people around the state need to have on their radar as he looks to stake his claim as a high level producer on this Panther Creek team, there were some early jitters all around, but once he got settled in he was extremely effective defensively, creating havoc with his length, and forcing turnovers.  Like McKoy, Berry started to get going in the 2nd half, playing an integral role in the come from behind victory.

5’10 2020 David Butners: Panther Creek High School

Butners found a way to overcome a poor first half and become an X-Factor in the comeback that took place in the 2nd half.  He hit arguably the biggest shot of the game to put Panther Creek up by 6 with just over two minutes to play, and was a steadying force at the point guard position throughout.  It’s always refreshing when a young player moves on from moments when he’s not at his best, and subsequently makes a play that swings the result for his team.  He had a really good summer with WCBA and he should look to carry that success into his Junior season with the Catamounts.

5’7 2019 DJ Thomas: Broughton High School

Thomas is the definition of lightning in a bottle, he’s a quick twitch, high flyer that constantly has the entire gym at the edge of its seat anticipating a jaw dropping moment.  He came off the bench in this one, and basically played the entire game after the first 3 minutes and was a constant presence throughout on both ends of the court.  He had 5+ steals and does such a great job at getting down the court and turning those steals into offense at the other end.  His jumper has improved since last year, which will only open up more things for him as he looks to attack the basket with a flare for the moment.

6’0 2019 Tynias Peace: Broughton High School

Peace was excellent for Broughton throughout the contest, knocking down shots, slick one handed dimes in transition, and he was completely bought in on the defensive end.  He’s a bonafide scholarship level kid in my eyes, with his ability to create for others, himself, and pride he takes in his work on the defensive end.  He should be the focal point for a really interesting Broughton squad.
