is kind of that classic undersized big that seems to populate every high school roster. Unlike most bigs he is relentless both rebounding and scoring quick put-backs. There is some ability to handle the ball away from the basket, but he will not be asked to do that often. Green’s role will be to pull the double team away from . Cochran is going to break out in a monster way this winter. Look for him to finish the season as a District MVP with multiple college offers. Further, Daniel will be a Mr. Basketball candidate in another year’s time.
moves like a dream, with silky agility around the perimeter. He is not the scoring threat of the district’s top five players but he looks like a stat stuffer with potential to score big when he earns his way to the free throw line.

One player the John Overton coaching staff is excited about is. “He is really fast with ball,” said Head Coach John Hopson in a September phone interview. “He can really pass the ball and penetrate defenses. Once we get him to guard at the level we want him to guard…once he plays with poise, which I know he can…”
“He has not really played varsity to this point.”
(13.5 ppg) is the premiere player for John Overton, the scoring leader and certainly the emotional backbone of the team. He looks like a candidate for District MVP, though not the favorite is.
Asked about an advanced, young talent within the program, Coach Hopson offered wing sophomore Ryleigh Meanus.
Both(5.9 ppg) and William Carter (5.0 ppg) started last season. Meanus dressed varsity as a freshman, playing in six games.

Coach Jason Tigert quotes:
“(2023) is the most notable name on our roster.”
“is probably the most underrated player in the state. 4:1 a/to ratio at one point last year. He has been starting to score the basketball this summer. Used to be managing offense, defending. He has made a jump this summer, averaging 21 ppg, that is quite a jump from 10 ppg as a sophomore. High IQ. High motor. Does it all. He has been in the shadow of Reed Kemp since his freshman year. He really stepped into the role of scoring the basketball, as well.”
“, younger brother of Jack. Good shooter. Good feel for the game. We look for him to make a big jump, as well. Usually I see that sophomore to junior year that has the biggest gains.”
“. Elite shooter. He is one that is going to play at the next level. He is a rising sophomore (2025). In that class, as well, a couple of names that you would you want to know are: Cooper and Riley Jordan. Elite! defenders. Very athletic. Play extremely hard. They are elite defenders. They were even as freshmen as well. At the end of the year Cooper got in a Regional Tournament game as a freshman. They are great on-ball and great team defenders. Their offensive skills are starting to catch up.”
I think [Jack] is going to make a big-time jump. This summer he averaged a double-double, really rebounding the basketball. His defense has significantly improved. he is shooting the ball extremely well. He has really made gains on the defensive end. He could always score. But now he is really adding to that. he is a for sure double-double threat guy. – FHS Coach Tigert
