My Ohio Cardinal Conference Post-Season Awards
Player of the Year - Jacob Bolyard, Orrville. Right around 20 ppg over the past 2 seasons. Should've won it last year. Led league in steals, 9th in assists. Easily the most well-rounded resume in the league.
Coach of the Year - Craig Martin, Wooster. Lost 6 of last 8 OCC games last season (finished 6-8). Went 10-4 and tied for 2nd place this year.
Got a feeling Senior's Effie James might get this one...and that's fair. It could go either way, but Martin is my pick.
1st Team - Zach Wasson (ORR), Delvonta Cheathem (MAD), Darrin Harris (MANS), Logan Slavinski (CF), Alex LaLonde (WOO)
2nd Team - Grant Fairhurst (ASH), Alex Kacere (WOO), Jalen Watts (MANS), Jason Guth (LEX), John Thompson (CF)
Picking Lexington's Guth (10.4 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 1.9 apg) over teammates Courtney Avery (10.8 ppg, 2.9 apg, 1.8 rpg) and Mike Augustine (10.6 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 1 apg) was tough.
Wouldn't be surprised to see Avery get the nod on name recognition.
That's it...consider yourself honored.
