With the 2018 AAU season in the rear view mirror, we are going to dive into programs across the state looking at their teams in a variety of categories in our Program Awards!  Today we examine NKY Force!

Program MVP

Dalton Bruner, West Jessamine

Dalton could be counted on to get a bucket for the Force when they needed one and had no fear of taking and making the big shots late in games. Bruner’s lack of height is keeping him from being a bigger college recruit but he will eventually find a home at the small college level.

Top 2019 Prospect

Reid Jolly, Campbell County

Jolly is an inside/out threat who is probably the best player in the 10th region this season. If I were a coach at Kentucky Wesleyan, Bellarmine, Asbury, etc., I’m trying to get that kid on my campus ASAP. Reid’s a “tweener” for college coaches but he reminds of NAIA All-American Trenton Thompson.

Top 2020/2021 Prospect

N/A. Force only had a 2019 team

Sleeper

DeShaud St Martin, Danville

Not many 6’7 kids in Kentucky are classified as sleepers but Deshaud is a skilled stretch 4 who can rebound the ball well and knock down open perimeter shots. An overall lack of athleticism and quickness hurts St Martin as a D1 level prospect but he could certainly find a home at the D2/NAIA/D3 level.

Biggest Stock Riser

Drew Wilson, Campbell County

Wilson will move into our rankings with the next update and should be in the mix with his teammate Reid Jolly to be an MVP candidate in the 10th region this season. The Force could rely on Drew to make huge plays on both ends of the floor all season long.
