Kelly, Nwachukwu Earn All-District Basketball Honors

Kameron Kelly Named Second-Team All-District Basketball; Noble Nwachukwu Garners Honorable Mention

Sophomore Kameron Kelly, who stepped in as Pirates quarterback midway through last season, was recently honored by District 10-4A coaches as a second-team all-district selection in basketball. Kelly's smart, assertive play on the court closely resembles the style he displays on the gridiron. Basketball head coach David Black described Kelly as "exciting" and "clutch." The sophomore is one of several candidates who will compete to lead the Pirates football team this fall.

Senior Noble Nwachukwu garnered honorable mention. The senior, who started two seasons on the Pirates defensive line,  has signed with West Virginia University for football.

Other all-district basketball honorees were junior Jacoby Armstrong on first team and senior Chad Hamilton as honorable mention.
