1st Team All-District/ Newcomer of the Year
JR – Tayton Conerway
Earning the lone superlative award for the Spartans was JR – Tayton Conerway. Tayton was named District 5-5A Newcomer of the Year averaging a team high 16.8-points 3.7-assists 3.1-steals and 5.4-rebounds. Tayton’s breakout year has been one to remember and placing him amongst the state’s best.
1st Team All-District/ TABC All Region
SR – Anthony Hunter
SR – Anthony Hunter capped off his senior season in a very impressive manner, scoring over 1,000-points for his career, being the school’s all time leader in 3-point Field Goal Percentage, 3-point Field Goals Made, Highest FT Percentage, Most Points Scored in a Game, and finishing 2nd All-Time on the scoring list. Anthony averaged 16.1-points 4.1-rebounds 1.9-assists and 1.6-steals per game this season and earning a place on the TABC All-Region Team.
1st Team All-District
JR – Jacob Stuckey
JR – Jacob Stuckey was Mr. Efficient this season for the Spartans. His soft touch and knack for making big shots and deep bomb-like 3-pointers at 6’8in tall, really garnered him some much deserved attention. Jacob placed himself amongst the state’s best stretch-4 men and proved himself to be invaluable in helping create space and driving for his teammates with his long distance shooting ability. Jacob averaged 12.6-points and 6.8-rebounds while being the teams most efficient offensive weapon and shooting an amazing 36% from 3FG range this season.
1st Team All-District
JR – Zachary Bolf
JR – Zachary Bolf is the heartbeat and the pulse of all things Spartan Basketball. As a competitor, leader, and teammate he possesses the intangibles that will further carry this group to new levels of success for his Senior season. His knack for reading and finding the basketball on missed shots is uncanny for someone who stands only 6-foot tall which allowed him to break the school record in Rebounds in a Game (20). Zach led the team this year in rebounds, most blood on the uniform, and the issuing out of bruises with his physical play. Zach came in as the runner-up for the district Defensive Player of Year all while averaging 12.4-points 7.6-rebounds 2.9-assists and 1.3-steals per game this season.
2nd Team All-District
SR – Nate Adcox & SR – Kyland Walker
Other Spartans earning All-District Recognition was SR – Nate Adcox and SR – Kyland Walker. Both were recognized for their efforts and earned 2nd Team All-District Honors. Their unselfish play allowed for the rise of the very talented JR-class to flourish and have breakout seasons and allowed for the team to experience success that has yet to be seen at Centennial High School.
These earned recognitions allows for these young men to be in consideration to be named All-Johnson County by the Cleburne Time Review and their sports writing/reporting staff.
