The Owensboro Times is announcing its 2019 All-County Boys’ Basketball Teams, featuring players from Apollo, Daviess County, Owensboro, Owensboro Catholic and Trinity. All results are based on voting by the coaches of the five high schools at the conclusion of the regular season.
Below are the Player and Coach of the Year, as well as the full rosters for our First, Second and Honorable Mention teams.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Darrion Wimsatt, Owensboro — Read full story here.
Wimsatt was the clear leader for Owensboro, and he was the only returning player with significant varsity minutes under his belt. He led the Red Devils to their first state tournament appearance in four years, averaging nearly 20 points per game as a versatile point guard that could knock down shots from anywhere.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Rod Drake, Owensboro
Drake didn’t let preseason polls get in the way of leading Owensboro to a successful 23-8 season. The Red Devils posted a 17-0 record against 3rd Region opponents with a double-digit win margin en route to a state tournament berth. Drake gave most of the credit to his coaching staff, who he said could all be head coaches at other programs. He said Owensboro takes pride in player development and that was a big factor in their success this season.
