    Jeff Richie from the 14th Region was a pretty good player back in the day.

    I feel pretty confident that he was in the 14th Region. He played college basketball at Alice Lloyd College in the mid-90s.

    This is a tough thread title because it is specifically asking about "standout" player, which may not be easily defined, right ?
