To some, it’s their skill level, their attitude or just how they play the game. Since taking over the beat writer position for Delaware County high school boys basketball earlier this season, multiple players have stuck out to me. This list is, in my opinion, the players who have improved the most from last season.

Jarron Coleman with the rebound. He swings it to Jaylin Sellers up the court. Sellers pulls up for a 3-pointer… it’s good. The packed Worthen Arena roars with cheers as Kent State calls timeout.

The reason this year's Super Bowl was such a big deal is that ever since the NFL began, Black quarterbacks have been disrespected and told they needed to stop playing the position they worked so hard for their entire athletic life because they couldn’t succeed.
