What a playoff run by Wheeler! After beating some quality teams during the season, they turned up their game to another level. Wheeler beat two great teams on their run to the championship (Johns Creek and Campbell) who could have made the championship game in any other league in the state. Then they beat a very good North Cobb team who was full of athletes. At the end of the day Wheeler walked away with the CCJBC Championship and the #1 ranking in the state. On a side note Khalil Shaheed and Christopher Walls have played themselves into the B2C Player of the Year conversation. Richards put on a great performance in the Gwinnett County Championship against a very solid Osborne team. Jalen Alexander is putting his name on the list for being named Mr. Georgia an award for the best overall athlete for the state of Georgia at the end of the Middle School Sports season as he played a phenomenal game in the championship and basically changed the season for Richards when he joined the team after football season. Rothschild has a rematch of an earlier season game against Double Churches in the Muscogee County Championship in which Rothschild got the best of Double Churches but at the beginning of the season everyone was picking Double Churches to win it all, should be interesting to see how this one plays out.
