REVIEW OF 2014-2015
TEAMS TO WATCH IN 2015-2016
Bartow- With McKinley Harvin and Tony Bradley returning, they will lead a team that is coming off of a very good year last year. This year however, there are many new faces, including Timothy Jordan, Justin Serrano and Travion Hodge. They should get many wins in Polk County this year, and we will look for them to take the next step.
Ely- Coming off of an undefeated season before heading to New Jersey at the Dick's Sporting Goods Tournament and losing to Findlay Prep in a close game, Ely returns many players from last year's team, including Geremy Taylor, Mark Houston and Trevor Goodrum. Expect others to step up this year as well for Head Coach Melvin Randall who always gets the best out of his players.
Lakeland- Lakeland returns many players from their squad last year, including Shaquan McArthur, James Robinson, and Torrian Hampton, if it wasn't for Bartow, Lakeland would have had a path to the Final Four set if they could knock off Osceola. They should be in the same position this year.

BEST 7A PLAYER IN 2015-2016
Tony Bradley- The UNC-commit excelled last year for a 25-4 Bartow squad, and he returns this year to the Yellowjackets, primed yet again for another big year. We expect Bradley to be in the running for Mr. Basketball this season.
