Vote: Who is the Florida Panhandle Boys Basketball Player of the Week (1/22/2024)?

We have eight candidates for you to choose from

The Florida High School Boys Basketball season is in full swing and we continue our Player of the Week polls for areas all around the state. Teams started off the regular season with some great individual performances.

As such, we have eight athletes nominated this week for the SBLive’s Florida Panhandle high school boys basketball player of the week award from January 15-20 and we ask you, the fans, to help decide who should indeed be the top athlete selected. Voting will conclude on Sunday, January 28th at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be announced in next week's poll. 


Congratulations to Mosley’s Isaiah Smith for winning last week’s poll!

Editor’s note: Our corresponding poll is intended to be fun, and we do not set limits on how many times a fan can vote during the competition. This poll is specifically for fans to vote on the players that have been nominated and in no way discredits any other player that may not be mentioned in our poll.

Here are this week's the nominees: 

Jamie Hernandez, Bozeman: The Bucks’ forward had another big night, posting a double-double at 18 points, 11 rebounds in a 68-34 win over Freeport. 

Raedyn Barnes, Mosley: The junior stood out in the Dolphins’ 69-45 win over Leon, scoring 14 points, grabbing five boards and blocking three shots. 

Ethan McDonald, Jay: Despite in a losing effort against South Walton, McDonald tallied a team-high 21 points for the Royals. 

Anwar Conley, Niceville: The junior guard scored a team-high 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting in a 52-41 win over Rutherford. 

Isaac Hancey, Choctawhatchee: The senior led the Indians in a thrilling 77-75 win over Navarre, scoring 19 points, six rebounds and five steals. 

Ethan Kembro, Franklin County: Kembro has been Franklin County’s top scorer and had a team-high 25 points in a narrow 69-65 loss to Chipley last week. 

Darius Cunningham, Navarre: Though Cunningham and the Raiders were on the losing end of a 77-75 loss to Choctawhatchee, the senior had another monster game. Cunningham exploded for 40 points, 10 rebounds and four assists. 

Mahki Jones, Crestview: Whenever you surpass the 1,000-point plateau, that's a reason to be on the top performers list, right? Jones accomplished that last week and has the Bulldogs playing good basketball as districts draw closer.
