Great guards lead way for boys squad
Placeholder Image
If there was a common dominator between the most successful teams in the 5-6 grade boys elementary league, it was the play of point guards.Every elementary team was blessed with great guards and the Southern Standard All-County squad features four of the best.Morrison point guard Ethan Smith, Eastside shooting guard Dillon Young, Centertown slasher Damian Thomas and Boyd floor general Heath Kuykendall each made the all-county first team, where they were joined by Warren County Middle School’s fantastic forward Crockett Walker.Smith was the Eagles’ leader this season and a big reason why Morrison earned a share of the regular season elementary championship. The lefty point guard was equally adept at scoring or passing as he led the Eagles in points and assists. Smith played his best in the big games as his 18-point performance Oct. 8 gave Morrison a big 33-28 road win over Warren County.Young was the top 3-point shooter in the elementary league as he bombed away from the outside for Eastside.Plenty of Young’s points came from 3-point range as he connected from long distance 13 times this season.
