2019 PG Roscoe Eastmond (Wheeler)-

Eastmond may go overlooked at times on this Wheeler team that is loaded with prospects, but he did it all for the Wildcats on Saturday. He is extremely unselfish and racked up 8 assists against Mt. Bethel, making the right pass and getting his teammates involved time and time again. Eastmond is a pesky on-ball defender, which creates opportunities in transition for the Wildcats frequently. He has continued to show a reliable outside shot as well, which is a big help for this team. He displayed impressive toughness and gave great energy and effort whenever he was on the floor.

2018 F JP McGhee (Milton)-

McGhee caught the attention of everyone in attendance on Saturday with his combination of activity and athleticism. He is a quick, powerful leaper who rose up for some big dunks in traffic against Sacred Heart. McGhee also used his physical attributes on the defensive end. He protected the rim for the Eagles and secured some important rebounds in the 2nd half. Some may consider him to be undersized, but he just gets the job done.

2018 G Victor Wilson (Sacred Heart)-

The Cardinals faced a large deficit at halftime against Milton and were in desperate need of production on offense. Wilson gave them just that. Although their comeback attempt fell short, Wilson was a huge part in making the game close. He was a sniper from outside, hitting 4 3’s in the 2nd half alone. However, he was not hunting his shot. He was patient and efficient in his opportunities, allowing the game to come to him. He will need to continue to step up for Sacred Heart with Diante Wood out.

2018 F Ben Soumahoro (Berkmar)-

The Patriots may have struggled to score early in their game against Cedar Grove, but they picked it up and Soumahoro was a big part of that. It seemed like every time you looked up, he was cutting through the paint to convert at the basket. Soumahoro’s solid frame helped him to finish inside and rebound, he was extremely active the entire game. He is one of those guys who does not require a bunch of touches, but is still effective and finds ways to contribute. This quality will help Berkmar a lot this year.

2018 F Christian Parker (Lithonia)-

In a game that Lithonia dominated from start to finish, Parker helped to set the tone and send a message early on. Parker has nice size and length on the wing at 6’5”, which he uses to grab rebounds and wreak havoc on defense with the rest of his active teammates. He got out in transition early and often, making good decisions and finishing well. Parker should be a very productive player for the Bulldogs this season because of the tools he has and the way in which he approaches the game.
