Jalen Steele (Fulton) was selected as Mr. Basketball for Class AA during the ceremonies held directly following the championship game.
He was chosen over a pair of juniors in Lester Wilson (Carter) and Kedren Johnson (Marshall County).
The Auburn signee put together a stellar high school career winning two state championships and recieving every district and region MVP nomination that existed for te past four seasons.
Jalen has been a competitor and one of the best players to come through the Knoxville area in many years.
I have truly enjoyed getting to know him and consider him my friend and wish him nothing but success in whichever direction his basketball career will take him.
Thanks for the memories my friend, I will cherish them always.
