    5th Region Player of the Year

    Who do you have? The two front runners have to be Goodin and Faulkner. But a case could be made for Compton at Green Co as well. All three are top 20 in the state in scoring.

    #1 Faulkner 35.4 PPG
    #3 Compton 29.0 PPG
    #16 Goodin 24.1 PPG

    I'm not too sure about Compton . I watch them play Nelson County and he got out scored by one of their juniors.

    It should be Faulkner but Goodin will win because they advertise him so much

    I know it's an individual honor, but I've always believed that the record of the team should factor. Goodin would be my pick.

    Green County 15-8
    Taylor County 12-7
    Caverna 11-10

    I wouldn't say there is much to differentiate between their records. I guess the biggest question is what would each of these teams look like without their star players.

    I know the records are close right now. But Taylor Co seems to have figured it out lately. Along with getting Gaines eligible.

    There is the problem with making it team factored. Goodin is a better basketball player now than he was 2 weeks ago because Gaines is playing?

    Is there more to being a good basketball player than points scored? If not just add it up at the end and hand out some trophy's.

    I think this has to a lot to do with TC figuring it out lately. Add a player like that to any team in the region and they will surely improve.

    I think it is a combination of everything. If you were to pick one 5th Region player to lead your team who would it be? What player gives their team the best chance to win by making everyone around them better? Or by putting the team on their back when called upon. Its definitely not an award that is based solely on a single factor.

    I'm in the 4th region but there were 5 posts in a row where nothing was mentioned about anything to do with defense, clutch play, or value to the team so I was curious.

    If we're going to completely pick it apart with records. Let's compare level of competition. Who in the 5th has played half as tough of a schedule as Taylor Co?

    Agree 100%

    If you put Goodin on Caverna and Faulkner on Taylor Co... Would it change the outcome of how the teams perform? Or how the votes will fall for 5th Region POTY or Mr. Basketball?

    If Taylor county didn't recruit like they do they would just be mediocre . Gaines moved from bowling green area, Sloan from lville ... Ohh wait morgenson moved to play there last year .

    Give me a break they should have been giving sanctions like cordia
