Eagles At A Glance

The young team that beat Berkmar 52-47 to claim the championship in Georgia’s largest classification, then nearly shocked IMG Academy in the GEICO Nationals, returns virtually intact in 2021-22 – led by a dynamite guard duo of Ohio State pledge 6-2 SR Bruce Thornton (17 ppg, 9 apg, 7 rpg) and 6-2 JR Kanaan Carlyle (18.0 ppg, 5 rpg, 3.5 apg). Up front, Coach Allen Whitehart’s squad is strong with 6-7 SR Kendall Campbell and 264-pound brute 6-3 JR L.T. Overton. Milton, the 2010 City of Palms runner-up, also benefits from two new arrivals, 6-2 SR Chase Cormier (14.3 ppg, 6.0 apg at Greenforest GA) and 6-7 SR Jonathan Murray (Birmingham Huffman AL). … Thornton was a first-team MaxPreps Sophomore (2020) and Junior (2021) All-American. He scored 29 points in a 90-77 win over Wheeler, and had 18 points, nine assists and six boards in the 73-68 loss to IMG, a game in which Overton grabbed 10 rebounds.
