Vikings At A Glance
Six-time state champion Coach Lawton Williams (403 career wins) has his most promising young group, highlighted by nationally-known 6-5 SOPH Marcus Allen (12.2 ppg, 7.2 rpg as a freshman), since the Vikings won four straight 6A state titles from 2012-15. Norland’s leading scorer, 6-4 SR Cam Johnson (15.1 ppg, 5.1 rpg), also returns and is joined by 6-1 JR Carl Parrish (7.3 ppg) and 6-1 SR Adefemi Akinwole (4.7 ppg), plus another talented 10th-grader, 6-2 SOPH Clarence Burts (4.2 ppg). … The Vikings’ last City of Palms appearance was in 2015, the final tournament at Bishop Verot HS, winning one of three games against a field that showcased 17 future NBA first-round picks (12 of them taken in the lottery).
