Mike Digiulio

Mason Goodridge is a name that has been left off of a team for the past two seasons falling to honorable mention. Mason is one of the most complete players in WNY, from ball handling, court vision, athleticism and having a very high basketball IQ. Goodridge gets the short end of the stick for one reason, he plays at Springville. Being a Springville grad myself, I understand the stereotype to stay away from the last town in Erie county when it comes to basketball. But mason isn’t just “good for springville,” he’s a top 10 player in WNY and he deserves that recognition. Anything past 2nd or 3rd team would be robbery to mason game and to the people of springville.

Jaylen Williams is a player that many people may not know but his work ethic is something crazy he’s slept on but he’s really a bucket and has great Defense lead his team to plenty of win this season as a Junior and he’s not all about scoring he likes to get his team in the game with him very respectful young man always has a Smile on his face but he also has that dog inside of him when he steps on the court.

Joe Hnat deserves a spot on here. He is more of a bucket than jaylen Williams due to his moneyball shooting. In the first game of the year the crowd started cheering his name and he delivered with back to back trey bombs while putting up a little three sign on his eye. The kid is gritty as it gets and is the Class AA version of Noah Hutchins. Definitely deserves a spot.

Hutchins

Brooks
Justin from O’Hara
It’s not even a debate

Iv’e watched Jaylen Williams on many occasions and his lack of effort and grit is truly disheartening. Along with that, he lacks the skill set to play basketball at an effective level. Arguably the furthest thing from a bucket. No spot for him.

Brooks has a low sat score

Tyler Hind should land somewhere 1st to 2nd team. He is arguably the best shooter in WNY and that isn’t even his best asset. He is a natural born leader. Whether his team is up 20 or down 20, he plays incredibly hard and his teammates feed off that. He is a kid who is first in the gym and last to leave. If he had an off shooting night, he is on the gun the next morning at 6am getting 1,000 shots off. His love for the game is second to none. As great of a basketball player that he is, he is an even better young man. He would be a great ambassador for Center Court First or Second team!

Torree cheatham no debate. Most sleped on played on WNY

Brooks can't shoot. Nobody is the AA version of Hutchins. Closest would be Poumpey or Juston Johnson who is likely better but got screwed like my Frannies. Not the Williams kid he's not even close.

Jaylen Williams he’s a bucket stop sleeping on him

Torree Cheatham 20.6 ppg 2nd team NFL,I'm still trying to get over that.Not to make all center Court would be blasphemy!!

Let’s make sure we reward winning teams with multiple kids....A lot of trash teams out here,Park,Lewport,Falls,O’Hara should have atleast 3 kids from each of there teams on the list....

Malik brooks and toree cheatham

Torree Cheatham! Probably the most slept on, underrated players in WNY. he's a walking bucket, well running bucket, because this kid never stops pushing! plays full effort to the last buzzer, a true team player, with excite to bring to any team he is a part of!

Torree Cheatham is an underdog that everyone sleeps in he’s all in from rip off to the end of the game any team would be lucky to have him as a player with his vision his speed and game on the court he brings 100 percent ever practice workout and every game there’s no stopping this man not one bit

Torree Cheatham is one of the best overall players in WNY! His ability to score in spurts is unparalleled and his consistent energy is something any coach would die for. His Westbrook like attitude isthe spark every team needs and he refused to listen to critics. He puts in his work every gams and does whatever the team needs without regard to what anyone thinks. Without Cheatham, Lockport would have been lucky to be a .500 team.

Torree Cheatham easily. Good shooter, tremoundous hustler, great finisher around the rim and shows a lot of sportsmanship.Nice strong mentality. Most underrated player by far

Torree Cheatham! He’s grow and gotten way better this year, give his all on the court no matter what. Always a great 2-way player as well. Never a disappointment to watch on the court averaging 20 a game

Cheathem, Brooks, Hind, Goodridge and Brooks are all 3-4th teams. All are ballers but they also have deficiencies in their game but deserve some spotlight! Honestly don't know who Williams is so therefore I say no.

Avion Harris hands down should make it and first team all defensive
Definitely the most important player and the most improved player from going from 6 points a game to 15 points and over 100 steals !!! Haakim Siner impresses with the transition from a big to the second pg

Torree Cheatham is an amazing athlete. His strong will to succeed in everything he does shines on the court. His leadship skills will help make the perfect team mate and leader. Hes a slam dunk in my book;)

Torree Cheatham gives his all every game, he was the motivator of the team and got them pumped every game, he had many game winning scores at the buzzer, amazing defensive player, and all around great ball player, def one of the best overall players in WNY

Jalen Williams

Torree Cheatham is a great athlete, the impact he has on his team has lead them to many wins. His points per game is 20 while others above him are averaging less

Torree Cheatham has such a great attitude on and off the court, he practices everyday, always keeping himself working on getting better, his actions on the court speak for themselves, any coach would be lucky too have him on there team, he goes hard all 4 quarters and never gives up, he is a motivator and a team player

Don’t forget about zamari Mitchell led the the team to the best record in school history while averaging 20+ a game and was the schools all time leading scorer and the first player in school history to hit 1k can’t forget about Trent Winfree too was a great alongside zamari for one of the best backcourts in wny Zamari should be 3rd or 4th team and Trent should get an honorable mention

If you like bradberry should be 2nd and not torree you gotta be drunk posting. Torree didn’t even play half the minutes any of these players did and averaged 20.6. Lockport would’ve been below .500 team if he wasn’t there. Y’all just posting to post no cap🧢

TOREE CHEATHAM

Take a look at the North Tonawanda team, young guys who did some great things this season. Wizniewski, Fox-Stoddard, Moultrie...team has a bright future!

Hutchins
Haynes
Gayle
Hemphill
Lightfoot


These 5 have killed all year and have the accolades to follow
1k points
1k rebounds
POY
State champs
Championship mvps
Boom squads
These 5 are the must see group of kids

Toree Cheatham literally the most slept on player you can see his calmness and motivation passion when he plays

Guarantee Lockport only gets one player in. Anything other than that is questionable. Loved Brooks though. Vass should get a look on 2-3 team

Lewports 8th grader scored 18 on Park,held Glover to 2pts,didn’t turn the ball over once against falls,held there pg to 13pts,killed jonezy in playoff game and is one of the best pg in the area as a 8th grader......

Hutchins POY no question
Lightfoot
Gayle
Haynes JR
Nnagbo

Quentin Nnagbo is without a doubt the best big man in buffalo and on the back to back state champion park team , if we’re going by talent and accolades he has to be on the first team

Obviously Torree Cheatom and Malik Brooks will be co players of the year...sorry Noah! But let's hear from some other people over promoting players from teams that have no good wins and live in a bubble

River Reinhardt, Jacob Belote, Jakob Jerebko, Adrian Baugh, and Nate Wereski all earned some consideration

You can not CAN NOT put Bradberry over Brooks or Chettham, Bradberry is a hothead and shows it on the court. He is also inconsistent he can go hit 11 3’s in a game than go to 4 points In a game. He plays off emotion and you can see that, example at the lewport vs falls game roddy gayle dunked and got the crowd goin jayln had two missed dunks after that. I believe they lost by 4 if he had turned those to layups the game would’ve been tied and they would’ve went to OT.

Willie Lightfoot
Noah Hutchins
Malik Brooks
Roddy Gayle
Jermaine Haynes OR Hemphill (O’hara)

Factor in obviously Stats, Wins, what they bring to the table, competition played against, how far they made it, the team they’re working with.

Willie is competing for states and is just a game changer, arguably the next best thing out of WNY
Jermaine won states
Roddy took his team to 21 wins and are sec. VI A2 Champs. Started season like 12-0.
Malik averaged 28 ppg, had a winning record and took his team back to Buff state. Couldn’t be guarded. Lockport was tough competition against every opponent despite being outmatched.
Noah best player in WNY no need to explain lol

Wow Lockport fans chill. Bradberry and company are still playing. Sorry he didn't impress you in that league title game your team wasn't in. If Brooks & Cheatham were so amazing please explain why it didn't translate into a league title or any big wins? Lockport has to be one of the biggest schools in AA and two guys are being played up like Shaq and Kobe. Makes no sense. Congrats on the stats...win some games

Brady Woleben from Silver Creek, finished just behind Hind in votes for CCAA 1st team, 5th in section 6 scoring with 492 points, 3rd in rebounds (per sect 6 site) and hit 1000 points this season. Strong post player and effective outside shooter. Mind for the game.

Too many crazy Lockport fans in this forum....

@Kai Brooks definitely ain’t 1st Team

Malik Brooks
Willie Lightfoot
Noah Hutchins
Roddy Gayle
Jaylen Stewart

@CC JR (Flunky) Dean

*****MY OPINION******

Im a Park fan so honestly I dont care who on here besides Hutchins

Trevor Young
Marciano Lamar
Deshaun Nikonowicz
Lawrence Jackson
Reinard Siders

Noah Denz should be considered for the team. That man is the heart and soul of the East Aurora Basketball Team.

Notsaying.....you must have some issues and you must follow falls closely to know Bradberrys stats. Falls still lose game vs lewportif I'm not wrong he led them in that game and others missed layups also . He has had two games under dbl figures all year and is avg over 20 ppg . And other than loghtfoots two amazing performances has been the most consistent falls player al year .Everyone on these list has had a few games . Kid is 10th grader sure division 1 player ...you haven't played at that level I would say be quiet .pit Brooks on falls he is third best player and cheatham comes off bench .
I

lol I love reading these. I will not criticize any kid . But will take issue for ppl attacking my son.And with the personal view of it ,it seems like you prolly know jalen and have an agenda . Clear things up I'll take inconsistent if that means playing every game this and being the leading scorer on the 2nd best team in WNY. While having to adjust to playing mostly PG last year to strictly playing off the ball this year . Jay could have gone to another school avg 25-30 been all first team blah blah blah. Instead the hothead as u call him decided to play for his home team with kids he grew up with knowing he would sacrifice how he can and has played to fit it into a special team. So I will take over 20ppg 4 rebs 3 assist as the third ballhandler with over 60 threes and a trip to states for inconsistent. Oh and hes only a soph that will more than likely break dom welch's record if he decides to stay in WNY!! And the kicker he will 100 percent have his college paid for barring injury!I ....would bet u never made it past High school playing ball

Zach Fischer
5th team
Only averaged 18 points but a great leader and two way player
Not to mention he had 68 points against his former school in 2 games

Niagara Falls in the second best team in the NFL.....Not wny

Jalen Bradberry has been the best scorer in the falls the entire year...Willie has had tremendous games the last 2...Willie is a 16 yr old freshman,pump the brakes....

Torree Cheathman

Torree

Jaiden Dunn from Park is easily the teams best defender.. Has to guard the best player on every team and does a great job at it!!

Jake Mullen got be at least 3rd 4th or 5th lead Amherst to a 18 game winning streak and one of the best shooters in buffalo!!!! Jalen Stewart is definitely one of the top players in wny both need to be recognized !!!!!!!!!

Wow!! This is getting to the point where CC may want to pull the plug on this blog!! Let’s stop attacking the kid!! Bradberry is a really good player, no one can deny that!! Opinions are just that, but let’s build these kids up, not tear them down at the expense of making someone else look good!! State your case for your picks, without ripping someone else up! Very sad!!

Lockport fans are most delusional in world. Your team is not a top ten team in WNY. You guys go hard on here every year though .You are consistent I will give you that . Also did Brooks play vs Falls second game? If so he chocked in an imp game??

Lockport is like the little brother to Falls and Lewport,go sit off to the side while the big boys play and wait your turn......

I cannot believe some of the post on here.
People on here attacking the kids!! SMH.
Talking about little Bradberry, i just cant believe this.
These are kids just trying to have fun and play basketball. They don't need grown adults taking shots at them or their parents. People creating fake names to attack high school kids!!
ANYWAYS....my five without any hate!!

And after what they did to Health Sciences last year. It should be mandatory that the best schools in the area play each other before January. We should have interclass tournaments.... i.e.

Olean vs. Health Sciences
Springville vs. Park
So we get a chance to see all the talent. I saw Olean play 1 time this year, at buff state. That's not fair to us as fans....

What did they do to health sciences last year? And who the heck wants to see Springville play Park? And what is the point about Olean? Not trying to be a jerk, just really confused

Yoked up Fed of Olean deserves, at the very least, player of the year consideration. The man amongst boys is a physical marvel, with his muscular arms dwarfing those of Fed. His massive beard reminds one of an old cowboy movie, while also making Fed's beard look measly and childish in the process. He is truly the yoked up Fed.

Willie had a performance for the ages,but let’s be honest,North coaches blew that game,how do you not foul!!!!!Cost those kids the game!!!!!

Number 50 on Williamsville North... gritty intense strong. “Physical” that is a word that describes this kid. He’s about 6”2 235. Appears to me as a left tackle. Kid moves well good feet, posture, all the intangibles. As a member of a local gym I just got off the treadmill and watched him elbow a kid in the eye. Seriously? Your playing pick up basketball call down man! The young man who he elbowed came back and striked him in the face. It was like watching two Meir cats fighting each other what a brawl... hope he’s a good kid outside of school. Impressed me on and off the court with his looks/stature.

Gotta disagree with a few of these

1st team
River Jenkins- Clarence
Jack “let it fly” Bernstein- Lewport
Noah Clutchins- Park
Ja Morant- Murray State
Jazayazz Harris- Niagra Falls

Josiah Harris
Trent Scott
Jaemon Turner

Defense Team should include
Willie Lightfoot
Avion Harris
Justin Poumpey

There is no Jalen Duff doesn’t make something better overall #s then Glover,pompey,Harris(falls) and Jonezy.......Whos cares about grade....

When you start filling in teams,There has to be 3kids from the four best teams in the area....1.Park 2.Ohara 3.Lewport 4.Falls.....You take the third best scorer on all these teams and put them on these weak teams in the area and they all average 20+....Dont reward volume #s from these weak teams....Some of the players mentioned are on 7-9+ loss teams.....really......

When can we get a section 6 vs section 5 all star weekend/game???

I'd take Harris from Falls, Glover, Harris, Poumpey, Carter and little Hutchins, Jonezy, Briggs, Nettles, Siner, Eubanks all before Duff. Kid will be really good really soon though. His time will come.

Clearly you didn’t watch the Duff kid vs some of these teams with kids on the list....Scored 18 on Park with Hutchins guarding him most of the game,flat out shut down Glover (2pts)....Guarded light foot second falls game he had 13,and killed jonezy in playoff game....

1st Team:
Noah (POY)
Lightfoot
Hemphill

Congrats to all on healthy, successful years

Here's the facts. First, I am an NFHS alum. I'm not stuck on PPG. Bradberry is very strong. Underclassman. Lots of great players in WNY who have had their seasons' ended but he's still playing. Best on his team? Not sure. Does any coach care? No. Its a team sport, internal rivalry is goofy. When Willie had 39 how many came off of steals, boards, turnovers that Jalen helped cause?
If you want an individual sport then go play golf.

Jai’den Dunn (Park) has to be a lock on all centercourt defenders he showed up every big game checking the opposing teams best player and down right shut them down. Kid doesn’t get the credit he deserves.

Stop speaking negative about these young men. This can be a very good discusssion, however people ruin it. If your an adult making negative comments about 14 to 18 year olds you need help. Post your teams, give some stats, say why you think someone should be considered. Don’t make negative comments
The negative comments about specific players is sad. Been to a few Niagara Falls games and never once thought or seen Bradberry act like a hot head. Saying the Lightfoot is a 16 year old frehman, who cares? No one is saying he is a top freshman they are saying he is a top player. Complaining about Malik Brooks? Kid is a hell of an athlete! Let’s praise all these student athletes, help them to get the opportunity to play college ball.

Only thing we should be complaining about is that we didn’t get to see a Niagara Falls team of Willie, Jalen, and Roddy! That would have been fun...

Can we please stop attacking Bradberry,he is by far one of the most talented kids in the area....Seriously.....Clowns.....

How can you overlook the ECIC player of the year Reinhardt. There is a reason he received that honor. Also, don,t overlook Dunn, Cordone, Degree and Digiulio. I will put these kids against anyone on the “list”

Degree and DiGiulio both played at South who like Lockport have 2 players mentioned. And like Lockport they didnt do much at all as a team to impress which really hurts their stock in this situation. When a team has two guys that are supposed to be standouts you better be winning.

Lockport made it to buff st.gotta win to do that.

They beat Clarence. Thats it. And Clarence beat them too. Lost to every top they played and beat none. Even lost to West Seneca West. And they down by like 20 to North. Lockport was not a top team
