Saturday, February 14, 2009

The WBCA announced that Nimitz Senior High’s Brittney Griner has been named the 2009 State Farm/WBCA High School Player of the Year.
“The WBCA is thrilled to present Brittney Griner with the State Farm/WBCA High School Player of the Year Award,” said WBCA CEO Beth Bass. “She has had a tremendous season, and we look forward to watching her compete at the next level.”

Griner is currently ranked No.1 in the country by ESPN HoopGurlz and many other publications. She holds the national record for most blocks in a single game with 25. 6-foot-8-inch center, who has been on the cover of ESPN Rise Magazine, is often seen firing up the crowd with one of her signature dunks as she averages two dunks a game. This season Griner is averaging a team best 27 points, 13 rebounds and 11 blocks and has led her team to a 24-1 ledger.
