Tylis Jordan, Shiloh
In a matchup against a very high energy Winder Barrow squad, Jordan could have easily had a frustrating type of game. However, he showed a ton of toughness and found ways to be productive and help his team win. He was a huge factor in the paint and on the glass, finishing very well around the rim and consistently hitting the glass and getting to the free throw line. He has a lot of basketball savvy and toughness and that showed through in the win.
Jullien Cole, Shiloh
Cole will be a very welcome player for the Generals this season and could be a piece that they needed to become big contenders in AAAAAA. He has great size and physical ability as well as versatility on both ends. He spent time running the point and on the wing and guarded every position on the defensive side. He scored it from every level of the floor and had some emphatic finishes above the rim.
Jerrin Samuel, Winder Barrow
Samuel is a do-it-all type of player and one of Georgia’s best wings in 2026. He showed some of that versatility and more of his diverse skillset against Shiloh, looking impressive in the process. He is a good playmaker off the dribble, making reads and finding his teammates for scoring opportunities. He can also score off the dribble and off the catch and did it very well from all three levels, particularly from beyond the three-point line. As he continues to develop, he could be a very good player in the Peach in 2026.
Chase Roux, Walnut Grove
Roux was one-third of a Walnut Grove backcourt that was fantastic in a win over Lanier. His energy and shot-making were contagious, and he really got the Warriors going early on and helped continue that momentum in the second half. He was a big factor on the offensive glass with a number of put-backs throughout the game and also made his mark shooting the ball from the perimeter. He finished with 24 points in the win.
Byrd Carter, North Oconee
With North Oconee down for a long portion of the game against Clarke Central, Byrd provided a ton of heroics in the second half, making plays and knocking down shots. He went for 25 points in the win, with 13 of those points coming in the fourth quarter. He made shots from the perimeter and attacked the rim, continuously finding success finishing plays. He’s a reason that the Titans will be a team to watch out in the Athens area this season.
Bronson Blair, Mountain View
After a closely contested first half, Blair helped the Bears pull ahead and run away with a game against Rabun Gap. He’s very tough off the dribble, with the ability to beat primary defenders and make reads on secondary defenders. He finished off plays well around the rim and also was able to find teammates on a number of occasions for scoring opportunities. He’s very skilled offensively and college coaches will want to know his name.
