Greenforest vs Cedar Shoals, Guards Nathaniel Brown, and RJ Nord power a aggressive and backcourt for the Eagles. Nord and Brown know how to score, from inside and out, they can shoot the long ball. 6’5 Lamar Oden is tough another scorer on the wing who becomes hard to guard because of his size. Achor Achor and 6’10 Christian Fussell make life tough for anyone that thinks they will score in the post. Greenforest defense separates them from many and make them a favorite to win Single A private in Georgia. Coach Rory Griffin is one of the most energetic guys in the state on the sidelines, Griffin touch makes this team a special group to watch. L’Dreco Thomas’s Cedar Shoals team led by Quincy Canty and Tyler Johnson aka Taco and Chip, are a very tough tandem to stop. Johnson has a unique ability to make guys around him better, while scoring, whether it be put backs, jumpers, floaters, tough drives. Canty can score in and out and has the nickname “Mr. Mid Range”, for his ability to knock down the 15 footer on a frequent basis.
Heritage, Conyers vs Wilkinson County, Wilkinson County ushers in a new era as legendary coach Aaron Geter has step down and now makes way for Xavier Whipple. Wilkinson will look from help by the brothers Lamar (Jalen and Christian) to help defend their title in Single A. Josh Guilford and Trelan Scott, lead Heritage who could be a sleeper come tournament time with plenty of depth.
Chapel Hill vs Chattahoochee One of the more surprising teams in the state Chapel Hill starts the season at 5-2, Chattahoochee is led by guard AJ White, who knows how to get it done on the both ends of the floor, Cameron Sheffield, high level scorer, and double-double machine Grant Van Beveren, who can score in the post and grab every rebound.
Sprayberry vs Aquinas Sprayberry is 10-0, and led by Saigon Kitt, Jaylin Galloway, Mathew Jenkins and Jaylon Galloway. Coach Marc Carver and Coach Shepherd, do a good job with this budding group trying to crash the 6A party come state tournament time. Defending Single A private State Champs Aquinas That team is filled with sophomores and juniors so the program is in good hands for the future. Lead by Zy Wright, Johnathan Taylor and Chris Williams, this has a handful of hard nose role players and is a team that should make another run to a state title. Wright capable of a dropping 30 at any given time, Chris Williams controls the paint, and Jonathan Taylor runs the team, like a savvy point guard, while locking down opposing guards on defense.
