High School

Posted On: 12/12/16 6:00 AM

Who was the PrepHoopsIllinois Player of the Week?  There were a ton of great performances across the state over the last seven days.  Here are our nominees.  Make sure you vote for your favorite until voting closes at 10 PM on Wednesday night!


Ethan Schuemer (Willowbrook)

The Willowbrook 6’5” combo forward was great in front of us on Tuesday against Morton.  He displayed a skilled offensive game from mid-range and in the post.  Was outstanding hitting the glass in a win.  Schuemer had 28 points and 16 rebounds.



Brenden Boles (Salem)

The senior leader of the Wildcats played great in their Friday night win over Charleston.  Boles is a crafty guard that can score in the paint with his strength and is capable of hitting a three.  Also rebounded well in this one.  Boles had 20 points and 8 rebounds in their home opener.



Treye Tucker (Christian Life)

Tucker can flat out score it!  He did that in a 91-37 win over Keith Country Day where he dropped 39 points, 6 assists, and had 4 steals.  The sophomore point guard is flashy with his slick handles, passing, and perimeter shooting from really deep.



Gentry Whiteman (Rockridge)

Rockridge 2017 guard Gentry Whiteman is just a gamer.  He came up big Friday with 36 points on 13-21 from the field along with 4 rebounds and 3 steals against Fulton.  We expect him to put up considerable numbers throughout his senior campaign.



Jordan Goodwin (Althoff)

Goodwin could probably be nominated for this award every week.  He is posting the insane numbers that we expected out of the SLU commit as a senior.  Did it again on Friday going for an incredible 46 points and 19 rebounds against Cahokia.  Physical scorer that wills his team.



Drew Peterson (Libertyville)

Peterson has a monster performance on the road against Waukegan.  The top 5 junior in Illinois went for 33 points, 11 rebounds, and 8 assists in a win over a talented team.  Earlier in the week Peterson had 23 points and 10 rebounds against Warren.
