Queen’s Grant Stallions, Jeremiah Murphy
The Stallions senior team leader had another outstanding performance showing his dominance early on this season. The All-Conference PAC 7 standout scored 27 points, grabbed 17 rebounds, added 2 steals, and 3 assists in a non-conference 66-60 loss to Sugar Creek on Friday night. This game was the third double-double performance for Murphy in four games played this season for the Stallions.
Thus far this season Murphy is averaging 23.5 points per game and 11.5 rebounds leading the team in all key statistical categories. In his final season, the senior is clearly showing he is a first-team PAC 7 Conference contender, and a possible all-state player nomination in the 1A division of the NCHSAA.
We had a very competitive selection this week. As players from larger school programs Rocky River, Nick Burns 20 points, Calik “Duke” Thomas 20 points, Independence, Omarion Bodrick 10 points, 7 blocked shots, Nygell Veridier 15 points, Anthony Allen 14 points, all had solid performances and are worthy of honorable mention. Also, consideration was given for two top lady basketball performers Delayzhia Dixon 27 points, 10 rebounds from Rocky River, and Braylyn Milton 21 points, 8 rebounds representing Independence in a nice performance.
However, as we switch over from the action-packed football season to hoops. Jeremiah Murphy’s numbers and consistency stands out above the rest.
Therefore, the sports editor and sportswriters at the Mint Hill Times want to recognize and congratulate Jeremiah Murphy on his selection as this weeks “Featured Player of the Week.”
