Devon Scott-Player of the Day
On Sunday, Victor Dandridge's open gym attracted many of central Ohio's top high school players. The seven week event will be held at the USA Sports Academy in Columbus, and will again provide about 40 varsity level players the opportunity to get in a quality run simply for the cost of admission. In week one, 37 players showed up, and each of the 7 teams played about seven games. According to Dandridge, Northland's Devon Scott was the player of the day, as his performance was described as dominate. In addition, Scott's undefeated team got the nod as the team of the day. The team's roster included: Scott, Jordan Potts, Ty Harriston, John Draper and Jordan Fair.
From what I hear, some of the other standout players included: Carter Smith (Upper Arlington), Nick Archer (Olentangy Liberty), Roy Alexander, Eric Robey (Jonathon Alder), Caris Levert (Pick Central), Manuel Powell (Gahanna), Jalen Robinson (Northland), Jordan Potts (Northland), Jordan Cowgill (Thomas Worthington), Isiah Brooks (Walnut Ridge), and Adam McCall (Walnut Ridge)
Some of the other players in the house included: Jack Gibbs and Matt Rhoades (Westerville North), KeChaun Lewis (Northland), Eric Weisenbach (Dublin Coffman), Jaylen Benton (Westerville North), Also, for those of you who have not yet heard the news, Jaylen Benton has transferred from Northland to Westerville North, where he will now compete alongside Gibbs, Rhoades and Adrian Cook. With that said, don't cry for Northland, as sophomore Ty Harriston is reportedly poised to fill the spot vacated by Benton. If you want to catch the action for yourself, the sessions run from 4:00pm to about 6:00pm on Sunday afternoons. Finally, look for more updates on Dandridge's open gyms over the next 6 weeks.
