    how is kevin woods not a coach of the year he bought a young team to the state finals and held one of the best player in the country to 14 most of the points from the foul line

    • Joe MorelliJoe Morelli says

      fair criticism. I gave Kevin serious consideration for a team that was not expected to do what it did in the Class S playoffs. Barry did a pretty good job too.

  2. Rodney says

    How did Pha’Rod Goodjohn, Junior Forward from Whitney Tech not make All-State? He led his team in scoring (20.3) rebounding (13.6), assists (7.6), and steals (2.6); also making 1st team All- Conference, being the first player at Whitney to do so in 22 years. H e also broke the school record with 53 3-Pointers in one season. He helped turn Whitney Tech back into a 11-9 playoff team, after a 6-14 down season. I believ because he plays at a Technical school, he is overlooked, which isn’t right. He is well worthy of being put up there with these great players as well.
