With high school basketball in full swing, it’s time to see which Lansing-area players are making their mark as they try to help their team begin the season on a high note.
Last week, Fowler’s Mason Pline flushed a putback slam against Ovid-Elsie to help his team grab a 50-33 victory, while Waverly’s Mike Pete scored a go-ahead bucket to cement the Warriors’ 51-47 season-opening victory over Holt.
Watch and vote below for the video you feel is most deserving of the weekly award. A story on the play will be posted on LSJ.com later in the week.
Videos can be best submitted weekly until 5 p.m. Sunday using the Twitter hashtag #LSJVOW or emailed to James L. Edwards III at email@example.com. Each week we’ll select the best videos and post them online for public voting.
Videos can be of any high school event: A great play from any sport, a pep rally, a matching band performance, someone being honored or a team choreographed dance at practice. If you find it interesting, we want to see it.
This summer, we’ll chose 10 of the best videos from the entire school year and ask you to vote on the video of the year. The winner will be recognized at the Lansing State Journal Greater Lansing Sports Awards banquet.
(Note: The poll to vote is at the bottom.)
