    How about Terrell Leach from SWG? I really don’t even know how anyone in else in Piedmont Triad 4 Conference should even be considered before Leach!!

    And for what she did this year for the SWG Girls, Briana Burgins. She led conference in several categories, and was probably top 10 in every major category. She also led SWG to another undefeated conference season, after losing 2 seniors (Zena Lovette and Jessica Pone) last year that was about 50-60% of SWG’s scoring last year. I think she is at least worthy of a nomination.

  • hoops said,

    You cant be POY in the area if you wasnt POY in your own conference. That should be a rule. Who won POY for the Metro 4A girls and boys?

  • hoops said,

    Now that the full season is over. The All-Conference members can be annouced. Andy can you get a list of the POY winners for our conferences?


    Emmalee Thomas – Ledford – Mid Piedmont POY
    Joslyn Spires – Thomasville – Central Carolina POY

    Add these players

  • Andy Durham said,

    We will do some digging on that one…

  • Ballhawk said,

    @hoops- While I somewhat agree with your statement about not being POY in your conference, I have to also disagree based on this. The POY in most cases are not voted on correctly due to Coaches BIAS and hatred for other coaches and schools. Now while this may not be the case in all conferences around the area, it is definitely the case int the Piedmont Triad 4a conference. And a lot of the coaches have made it know for their hatred against SWG and their coaches. The Sr class for the women’s team has gone 47-1 in conference play with the one loss coming their freshman year. So the other coaches have not done what’s right by some of the kids for SWG. Period! It’s a shame that the only ones that really get hurt are the kids that put in the work, but get slighted by personal feeling beyond their control!!

    Sorry but you can’t straddle the fence.

    Sam Hunt
    Paris Kea

  • SA said,

    Hey we say Shaylan Burnett down here in Alamance county. The best girls player in the area. Hands Down.

  • NG Parent said,

    Aliyah Grinage had the best numbers for our Northern Guilford team and was consistent in the playoffs. How come her name is not mentioned?

  • hoops said,

    Everyone hate SW coaches. It has been that way for the last 8-9 years. Baseball, Volleyball, Girls BB , Boys BB, and Soccer in whatever conference they are in.

  • Panther Nation said,

    MO DAVIS of Dudley: best pure shooter this city has ever seen.

  • Tatum said,

    I was wondering do we suppose to vote for whomever name is first on the list?

  • Shooting with range said,

    I love Mo Davis as a shooter but Tamera Thorpe from the Day School is the best shooter in the city. She often is double teamed and still gets her points. There are very few girls that can shoot as far out on the floor as she can.

  • Observer said,

    I saw just about all of the players mentioned above on the boys side this year and I think hands down the winner should be Leach. To the poster above who hates Reid Holmes? One of the classiest coaches there is around here.

  • hoops said,

    I dont hate coach reid You read my post wrong. My point was area coaches hate southwest no matter what.

    Thanks for following….

  • Observer said,

    I am an area coach and have never thought anything bad about Coach Holmes.

  • Hpca said,

    How can you put Jackson Kent ahead of Diante Baldwin of HPCA? Diante Baldwin was the MVP on HPCA.

  • The Truth said,

    Harry Giles is the best player in the state regardless of class hands down!!! He is the player of the year no questions asked. In my opinion the 2 best players in the state are freshmen. Go down near Wilmington and ask about a kid they call BAM!! 6’9 ANIMAL!!

  • Fan said,

    I nominate Sam Hunt! Sam took his team to the Regionals without any big men and not a lot of talent. I watched him get better and better as the season went on. Conference tournament and sectionals. What a great player. Has to be one the better point guards to ever play at Dudley.
