Johnson led the Elks in scoring with 17.1 points per game and also topped Burleson with three steals and 3.5 assists per game. The junior also grabbed 3.1 rebounds per game.
“Jaylen could take over a game,” Burleson boys basketball coach Alan DuBose said. “When his shot was on, we usually won. His motor was always running on defense.”
Sneed was second on the team, averaging 9.1 points per game. He also averaged 3.1 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
“Pound for pound, Josiah is the best player that I have ever coached,” DuBose said.

“Justin was a solid contributor all year for us,” DuBose said. “He was one of our best rebounders.”
