Jaylen Brown wins Gatorade Player of the Year


CHICAGO - In its 30th year of honoring the nation's best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, has announced Jaylen Brown of Wheeler High School as its 2014-15 Gatorade Georgia Boys Basketball Player of the Year.  Brown is the fourth Gatorade Georgia Boys Basketball Player of the Year to be chosen from Wheeler High School. 

The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the court, distinguishes Brown as Georgia's best high school boys basketball player.

Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Boys Basketball Player of the Year award to be announced in March, Brown joins an elite alumni association of past state boys basketball award winners, including Dwight Howard (2003-04, SW Atlanta Christian Academy, Ga.), Chauncey Billups (1993-94 & 1994-95, George Washington HS, Colo.), Jason Kidd (1991-92, St. Joseph Notre Dame HS, Calif.), Paul Pierce (1994-95, Inglewood HS, Calif.) and Chris Bosh (2001-02, Lincoln HS, Texas).
The 6-foot-7, 220-pound senior wing led the Wildcats to a 30-2 record and the Class AAAAAA state championship this past season. Brown averaged 28 points and 12 rebounds while shooting about 64 percent from inside the arc. He is rated the nation's No. 2 recruit in the Class of 2015 by ESPN and is a 2015 McDonald's All-American Game selection as well as a 2015 Jordan Brand Classic game invitee. Brown also captured MVP honors at the City of Palms Classic in December when he scored 25 points to go with 12 rebounds, shooting a perfect 12-for-12 from the free throw line in a 72-65 win over Montverde Academy.
Brown has maintained a B average in the classroom. A devoted parishioner in his church community, he is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes as well as Men and Women of Distinction humanitarian service organization. 
"Jaylen Brown is an outstanding player," said Hollis Bethea, head coach at Douglas County High. "He has a really good perimeter game and can attack the rim off the dribble. He reminds me of LeBron James when he gets the rebound and goes coast-to-coast and finish on the other end of the floor"
Brown remains undecided upon a collegiate destination.

Nash lands Dunwoody head coaching job

Shiloh grad and current coach Michael Nash has been hired to be the next head football coach at Dunwoody High School.

"It's been a goal of mine to be a head football coach since I graduated high school (at Shiloh in 1992) and played for Coach Jordan, Charlie Jordan," Nash told the Gwinnett Daily Post. "My oldest daughter is named after him, he meant that much to me. I wanted to do the same for others as he did for me. ... It's tough, real tough, to leave, honestly, because I love this place. I grew up here. My kids grew up here. My daughter was three weeks old when she went to her first basketball game and was passed around the student section here. It's tough to leave, but it's a great opportunity. I'm real excited about it."

Nash is Shiloh's baseball coach and will remain with the Generals through the end of the school year.
