The Lumberton Raiders boys basketball team racked up a pair of postseason honors this weekend, making history once again. Head Coach Josh Mitchell was named the 22-4A Coach of the Year. It’s the first time in Lumberton history that a boys basketball coach has received this honor. “I couldn’t have done it with out my two great assistants and the great group of kids that I had playing for me. I’m very blessed to be a Raider,” said Mitchell.
His assistant coaches were of course Tigee Rideaux and Derrick Edwards.
Lumberton junior Jadon Wahl landed a spot on the second team all district, and sophomore Brock McClure was named newcomer of the year. Reagan Koch also received the honorable mention tag.
The Silsbee Tigers and Hardin-Jefferson Hawks also landed multiple players on the first and second teams. Silsbee’s Jordyn Adams was named the overall MVP of the district while his fellow senior teammate Devon McCain was selected as the defensive MVP. Juniors Braelon Bush and Landyn Tyler made the first team and Chris Martin made the second team.
H-J’s Jason Pershon, Bruce Green, and Demetrius Johnson received first team selections, while Darius Johnson was named to the second team.
