"Bustin Out", Player of the Week
Shane Griffin. 6'4" Sr. Thunderbird High School
The Sr. southpaw from Thunderbird, named Player of the Year in the Skyline Region, led his team to a 22-5 overall record, 8-2 in the Skyline. Region Champs and the #1 seed in the regional tournament.
The swing led his team down the stretch with a 28 pt. performance, followed by a remarkable night against Sunnyslope. Pouring in 35 pts. and crashing the boards for 19. Thunderbird won the game, and clinched the #1 slot with Griffin carrying T-bird on his back.
Over shadowed all year with names like Simon, Golden, Freeman, Calvin and Evertson, Griffin proved to everybody he belonged. Being named Player of the Year.
Look for Griffin to be named to the 4A All-State team and again carry the T-Birds deep into the State playoffs.
Congratulations Mr. Griffin, you do belong!
