Warren County Pioneer senior Trevor Gaines and sophomore Isaiah Grayson were recently named to the 6-AAA All-District team.
Head coach Chris Sullens said, “I congratulate both of these guys on being selected by other coaches in District 6-AAA. I look forward to having Isaiah for the next two seasons and I look forward to what Trevor can do on the collegiate level.”
Gaines, a 6-foot-6 transfer student, gave the Pioneer offense a much-needed boost in just one season. Gaines is fundamentally sound on offense and his aggressiveness on defense makes him a standout. It is very rare for Gaines to come up empty when he gets the ball inside. He averaged 17 points per game and 12 rebounds.
He is a force to be reckoned with on defense and controls the boards along with fellow big-man Krojhn Calbert. Gaines is also one of the Pioneers biggest supporters from the bench while he rests on the sidelines.
Grayson has caught the attention of his peers in his second varsity season. He averaged 12 points and five rebounds per game. He has great anticipation on defense and many times he jumps the passing lane and races back the other way.
Grayson is a dual threat on offense and has no problem shooting from outside behind the arch. He can also blow past the defender off the dribble and his quickness allows him to finish at the rim.
In a 60-44 win over Rhea County, the combination of Gaines and Grayson scored 47 points as the high-voltage duo outscored the entire Golden Eagles.
Sullens added, “These two young men are fine examples on the basketball floor, in the classroom, and the community for what we want as Pioneer players.”
