CHEF OF THE WEEK
In sports the term “cookin” is reserved for a player who goes on a scoring spree or gets hot during a game and makes big plays on the offensive end.
This week’s “Chef of the Week” award goes to Northside (Pinetown, N.C.) forward Edrice Adebayo for going all “beast mode” with a 47-point, 23-rebound performance in a recent 75-65 win over Washington (Washington, N.C.).
Adebayo outrebounded Washington’s entire team by himself.
Marinate on that for a few.
POSTER OF THE WEEK
This week’s Poster of the Week winner is Lakewood (St. Petersburg, Fla.) wing Anthony Lawrence Jr. for his uber-vicious two-handed poster over 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall.
Lawrence, a Miami signee, brought the ball up the floor and when he reached halfcourt he gave his man a basic stutter-step and blew past him. That left Fall, a Central Florida signee, in the lane by himself to contend with Lawrence, who stands 6-foot-7.
Lawrence turned on the jets, took off in the middle of the lane and soared over Fall, who was too late with his defensive rotation.
The force of the dunk made Fall, well, fall back; no pun intended.
OH NO THEY DIDN’T!
This award is reserved for the player who turned in a mind-boggling performance or play that left the crowd in a state of shock and amazement.
This week’s “Oh No They Didn’t” winner is Greater Atlanta Christian (Norcross, Ga.) wide receiver Darius Slayton, a Georgia commit, for the unreal one-handed grab he managed in GAC’s 44-41 win over Fitzgerald (Fitzgerald, Ga.) in the Georgia Class AA state semifinals.
Slayton stretched his right hand out in stride at the 7 yard line, reeled in the catch and scored.
