There were many outstanding players in this venue and several had excellent games.  I have included some names but understand there were many others that impressed this week end.  Chase Keen (2023) (Dublin Coffman), Jon Mills (East Ridge), 5-9 (2024) Blake Reed (Bracken County), 5-11 (2023) Colin Porter (Ashland Blazer) tallied 41 points in one game, 6-1 (2022) Ethan Sellars (Ashland Blazer), 6-8 (2022) Christian Collins (Breathitt County), 6-3 (2025) Austin Sperry (Breathitt County), 6-0 (2022) Anthony Hersch (Capital), 6-3 (2022) Isaac McKneely (Poca), 6-1 (2023) Will Herald (Highlands) recorded 48 points including 10 three point baskets in one game, 6-1 (2023) Nate Mitchell (Mason County), 6-1 (2022) Ajay Sheldon (Dublin Coffman), and (2022) Rheyce DeBoard (Boyd County).  6-2 (2022) Cole Villers has always been a key performer for Ashland Blazer. Villers averaged 23.0 ppg last season and is a deadly shooter.


Coach Mays and his staff did an excellent job with this event and under his direction will only get better and bigger.  Also the website did an excellent job with the score updates and Coach Mays was very informative and provided a lot of info about the event
