2012-13 PHOENIX PREP BOYS BASKETBALL PREVIEW AND PREASEASON SUPER 7

(Continued)

This year’s sleeper?

A darkhorse to keep an eye on is Warner. The Eagles were only 9-14 last year but have two double-figure scorers led by 6-3 senior Grey Denton (11.5, 6 rebounds). Kyle Taylor, a 5-8 guard, averaged 11 points and is one of those still playing football.

A strong off-season in both sports has James Bliss’ team faster, stronger and quicker and with a mentality of winning coming from an unbeaten football campaign thus far in 2012.

Some other area players to watch:

Cody Faries, 6-4, Sr., F, Eufaula — 12 ppg.

Forest Paden, 6-1, Sr. G, Eufaula — 10 ppg.

Braylon Warrior, 5-8, Sr., G, Checotah, 12.6  ppg.

Lain Wright, 5-11, Sr., G, Tahlequah — 14.7 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 2.2 apg.

Chris Vance, 6-0, Sr., G, Hulbert — 10.6 ppg, 3 spg.

Craig Potts, 6-5, Sr., C, Hulbert — 11.4 ppg

Bill Muse Jr., 6-1, So., F/G, Hilldale — 11 ppg.

Jake Johnson, 6-4, Jr., Gore — 8.0 ppg, 5.2 rpg.

Derrick Jestice, 6-4, Sr., Gore — 9.1 ppg.

Payton York, 5-9, So., G, Braggs — 12.0 ppg.
