If you were to look around the city of Cincinnati, you would see the myth of kids focusing solely on one sport being broken. Multiple student-athletes in the area excelled not just on the hardwood, and their feats should be noticed. Here is a list of the best multisport athletes in the Cincy area from the classes of 2019 and 2020.

DeMarco Bradley Jr./Taft/2019- The Senators have a history of producing solid athletes who perform well across multiple sports. And you can add Bradley Jr, son of basketball head coach DeMarco Bradley Sr., to that growing list. DeMarco was the conference leader in interceptions (7) and steals per game (3.0) and made 1st team All-Conference in both sports. It will be interesting to see which sport he goes with at the next level, as Bradley has next-level interest in both sports. Arkansas-Pine Bluff offered DeMarco for football on May 17th per his Twitter account.

Joey Edmonds/Wyoming/2019- One of the best shooters in Cincinnati, Edmonds finished the basketball season as conference Athlete of the Year. The University of Findlay commit lead the CHL in scoring at 21.2ppg while also averaging 4.5apg as well. But Joey also excelled as a WR/DB for the Cowboys as he finished the season 5th in the conference with 421 receiving yards to go along with 8 receiving TD’s. As a DB he finished with 3 interceptions and for his efforts was named 1st team all-conference.

Darrion Henry/Princeton/2020- Henry is thought of as one of the top defensive lineman prospects in the country. He has offers from many of the top programs in the nation including Ohio St., Georgia Tech and Michigan to name a few. On the basketball court he saw spot minutes as a sophomore behind a senior-laden starting lineup. But with the graduation of the Vikings top four players, look for Henry to be a major contributor for his junior year. Henry looked good back in April playing for the Cincinnati Rockers Elite at the Bearcat Classic, owning the boards and finishing well in traffic.

Joseph Hocker/Deer Park/2019- The big man made a name for himself during the Wildcats D-III state title run in March. During the last three games of that run Joseph averaged 9 points and 12 rebounds per game, which included a 10-point, 18-rebound effort against Cleveland Lutheran East in the Final Four. But it’s as a football prospect where he has gotten the most attention, currently holding offers from programs including Eastern Michigan, Austin Peay and Ball State to name a few.

Evan Prater/Wyoming/2020- The future is very bright for this Cowboys junior. Currently the 16th ranked player in the state, Prater finished 4th in the CHL in points (18.4) and rebounds (8.9) per game. An athletic wing, Evan is playing this summer for OBC. But he will have his options as the football offers have already started rolling in. Considered on the of the top pro-style QB prospects in the country for his class, Prater holds offers from programs like Cincinnati, Pitt, and Howard University to name a few.

Chris’seon Stringer/Taft/2019- “Grown Man”, as he is known around the city, would have been a candidate for Comeback Player of the Year if such award existed in high school. After missing close to a calendar year with a leg injury, Stringer came back to average over 21ppg and was named 1st team all-conference for his performance. But Grown Man is also a tough hombre on the gridiron as well, having earned his 1st D-I offer April 7th from University of Toledo. This despite missing the entire football season.
