Dedric Lawson (Hamilton) West Tennessee Player of the Week (6/7)


The future is very bright at Hamilton High School in Memphis. The brothers Lawson, Keelon and Dedric Lawson (Hamilton), are proving to be match-up nightmares for their opponents. As a rising freshman, Dedric put together a spectacular last two weeks of action and for his efforts he has been selected as the Tennessee Prep Hoops West Tennessee Player of the Week for the Weeks of 6 and 7. Lawson scored 21 against Memphis Central before notching 26 in an upset victory over district heavyweight Melrose. The precocious youngster added 27 against national power Arlington Country Day at the Penny Hardaway Hoop Fest after a nice 31 point effort in a loss to White Station.
