Georgia High School Championship Contender Preview – Class 2A
ed in the state tournament round of sweet 16 to Josey high school at home. The program is trending in the right direction under coach Mike Cleveland after a 23-5 overall record last year and with enough experience returning, another region title and further run in the state playoffs is a legitimate expectation. Banks County has a significant advantage on the inside in senior Dylan Orr , sophomore and coaches son Carl Cleveland to go along with a solid back-court prospect in senior guard Gabe Martin.
Thomasville – The Bulldogs come into the season with major hype, mainly around their team’s and the state of Georgia’s top overall 2018 prospect, forward Reggie Perry. The Mississippi State commit made a splash on the Adidas gauntlet this summer with the Arkansas Hawks as well as in Colorado Springs with Team USA. He’s a patient but powerful above the rim big man inside with the ability to put it on the floor from the outside and make his way to the basket. He along with 6”9” junior captain Titus Wright make up one of the better front courts in the state. As a team the Bulldogs only lost 2 senior guards in Jordan Powell and Jordan Jones so experience won’t be a factor coming into the 2017-18 campaign. Thomasville are defending runners-up behind Early County in region 1 so dethroning them is priority before any state championship aspirations however with the players mentioned as well as a strong nucleus back for another season, there is plenty to be excited about with this team.
