King of the court: Keisling earns top honor

Senior guard led Lewis Cass to regional title

(Continued)

“Over the course of the year he was one player that you could tell who grew. Everyone knew he could shoot it but people didn’t think he could attack the basket and rebound as well as he did late in the year. That gave him momentum going forward into next year. He’ll get in the gym and continue to improve.”

Brayton Jellison, Caston

Jellison, a 6-2 sophomore, averaged 8.9 points and 7 rebounds per game for the Comets. He had four double-doubles this season.

“Brayton is one of our best athletes on the team,” Howell said. “He can shoot from the outside and take you off the dribble. He can also play with his back to the basket and got better there as the year progressed. He’s a guy we’ll look to for leadership in scoring and setting a good example for all the players.

“At the end of the season he had five double-figure games in a row. One thing we’re hoping for next year is an increase in points and rebounds from him and to be a solid player we can count on consistently night in and night out for us.”

Caleb Kindley, Pioneer

Kindley, a 6-2 sophomore, led the Panthers in scoring (8.8) and rebounding (5.6) this season.

The young Panthers went just 3-18 under first-year coach Austin Cowley after losing a lot of key seniors that won four sectional titles in a row. Their three wins were against North Miami, West Central and Faith Christian. They had an 11-point sectional loss against eventual regional finalist North White.

Kindley had a 17-point game against South Newton and had 16 against Carroll and 15 against North Miami. He had a double-double against West Central and pulled down 11 boards against Kouts to go with nine points.

“He started every single game as a sophomore,” Cowley said. “He got injured and went into a little slump there. But he led us in scoring and rebounding.

“He’s a hard worker and will put in the time for us, in the weight room and on the court. He’s turning into a gym rat.”
