by Andy Hilton, recruit757
In eight years of running the Buffalo Wild Wings Player of the Week contest, we’ve had some close calls. We’ve never had a tie. Until now.
On the boys’ side, Cameron Edmonds of Western Branch blistered the field and won 71% of the vote this week. Edmonds hit the game winning free throw against King’s Fork on Tuesday and had a 27 point, 10 rebound performance in a 72-63 win over Lakeland on Friday night.
On the girls’ side, we really did have a tie. Almost all of the votes went to two athletes.
Jada Johnson of Wilson HS scored 28 points and surpassed 1000 career points in a 58-54 win over Booker T. on Friday, then had 20 points, five rebounds, five assists and seven steals in a 59-28 win over Norcom on Saturday.
Cayla Copeland of Western Branch had a game-high 21 points in a 66-50 win over Lakeland Friday.
Both Jada and Cayla will be awarded as Player of the Week this week. We’ll visit Western Branch for Cayla and Cameron, plus we’ll hit Wilson High School to share an award with Jada Johnson.
Thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings for their continued support of the Player of the Week award, only on recruit757.com!
