Blue Devils At A Glance
The Blue Devils, one of Georgia’s most consistent programs under head coach Jesse McMillan, are loaded up front with 6-8 SR forward Rayshaun Hammonds, who averaged 19 points and 10 rebounds as a junior, and 6-9 SR Lance Thomas. Norcross won 20 of 21 games before the playoffs, but was eliminated by eventual state champ Atlanta Westlake, and faces an equally-stacked Class 7A lineup this year. So the emergence of 6-2 SOPH point guard Kyle Sturdivant and addition of 6-6 JR transfer Joseph Toppin, who has garnered D-I offers from a handful of SEC schools, from Meadowcreek are very important. … McMillan is 195-50 with two state championships in eight seasons, including an improbable title run in 2011 after a 5-8 start.
