Florida FHSAA Class 6A State Champion
- 6-3 SR Walter Clayton #15FL (PrepHoops)
Yellow Jackets At A Glance
Bartow’s fifth state championship since 1958 and its second under Coach Terrence McGriff wasn’t shocking, but how the Jackets did it in a stirring 66-61 OT victory over Fort Lauderdale Dillard should yield huge dividends for another season. Sure, there is a bonafide star in 6-3 SR Walter Clayton (15.4 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 4.3 apg, 2.3 spg), but five returning teammates also averaged at least 4 points – 5-8 SR Tyrone Smith (8.7 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 2.2 apg), 5-11 SR Alex Vigo (7.4 ppg, 2.3 rpg), 6-2 SR Amarion Frazier (7.3 ppg, 2.6 rpg), 6-5 SR Daithan Davis and 5-8 JR Jordy Lowery.
