In a season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops ranked the top 30 boys. Each day we featured an amazing player in our county and counted down until we got to #1. We hope you enjoyed the countdown as we honored the best of the best.
Jerome Toby Jr., freshman, Lummi Nation
WHY HE’S #11: The two-year starter makes the Blackhawks run — literally — as the engine that sparks the Lummi Nation fastbreak as well as its devastating fullcourt press. The 5-foot-7 point guard led the team in scoring with 18 points a game, dished out 6 assists a game, and collected 2 steals a game in leading the Blackhawks to the Class 1B state tournament for the second time in his two years and earning first-team all-Northwest 1B League honors along the way.
COACH JEROME TOBY SR.: “Jerome has started since eighth grade and as a freshman was our team floor general and leading scorer. He plays with a lot of passion.”
