Coach of the Year:
Michael Smith, Booneville (Booneville)
No one was busier, or more successful, than Smith during the 2013-14 high school basketball season. Not only did he lead the Blue Devil girls to a 28-6 record and their first-ever state title, but he also coached the Booneville boys to a 21-9 record and a spot in the 3A North semifinals.
F Victoria Vivians, Scott Central (Forest), 6-1, Sr. (Player of the Year)
Scoring 46 points in one game might be enough to earn a spot on the all-state team, but averaging 46.6 points per game for an entire season makes Vivians (who also notched 13.6 boards and 4.6 steals per game) both a worthy choice for Player of the Year and a huge get for Mississippi State’s women’s basketball program.
C Frederica Haywood, Kennedy (Mound Bayou), 6-1, Sr.
Despite averaging 22 points and 12 rebounds per game, Haywood made her greatest contribution in the last minute of the her last game when she scored the go-ahead basket in the Hornets Class A title win which completed a perfect season.

This future Vanderbilt Commodore averaged 25 points per game for the Tigers, who reached the Class 4A state title game.
