7A District 7

Teams:     Armwood     Blake      Brandon       Chamberlain      King    Hillsborough


7A District 7 was very competitive between the top 3 teams, 3 of the 6 teams finished with double digits wins. This district is filled with seniors and experienced underclassmen and will provide some very competitive and exciting basketball.

2017 Shomari King
2017 Shomari King of Armwood HS
  • Armwood – was 18-10 overall last year, 7-3 in district play. Armwood had the best district record in the regular season, they loss the district tournament championship to Hillsborough. The Hawks are a very athletic team, they defend and rebound well.  These two teams will be the draw for this district.

Key Returnees:

Shomari King – A 6’5 2017 F, averaged 8 pts and 6 rebounds per game

Chris Jones (x-factor) – a 6’1 2017 PG, averaged 5pts and 5 rebounds per game

Malcolm Lamar – a 6’6 2018 F, averaged 4pts and 4 rebounds per game

Key Transfers:

Stephonse Mack – a 6’ 2018 G averaged district high 14.4pts, shot 43% from deep on 108 shots with Brandon HS last season.


  • Hillsboroughwas 16-11 overall last year, 7-3 in district play. Hillsborough is young, talented, and headed to in the right direction under coach Chris Ward. The Terriers have improved over the last 2 years and we expect them to continue that trend.  Look for Bryce Moragne to be a big impact this year.  Also, lets watch for 2019 Tyler Thomas and 2020 Tyriq James

Key Returnees:

Bryce Moragne – a 6’4 2017 G averaged 12pts, 6.2 rebounds 2.5 steals last season.  Moragne should pick up his leadership roles and be one of the top scorers in this county.

Zach Carter – a 6’5 2017 F averaged 11.2pts and 9 rebounds last season

Dexter Stallworth (x-factor)-2017 PG has the talent and the mindset to be a good player at the next level.  Stallworth averaged 5.8 ppg and 2.6 apg will have to be more of a facilitator and increase is apg average.



  • Brandon – was 18-8 overall a year ago, 6-4 in district play. Coach Jamie Turner has some pieces he needs replace to finish at the top this district. The growth of his players will tell us how serious they are about accomplishing that feat.

Key Returnees:

Jayquan Johnson – a 6’9″ 2019 C averaged 3pts and 6 rebounds last year.  Johnson will have to pick up his learning curve to be a dominant player this year.  He has the tools, so keep an eye on his development.

Harrison Jones – who averaged 9.1 ppg will have to pick up some slack in the scoring department this season.


  • King – was 9-14 overall last year, 5-5 in district play under Coach Micheal Weaving.  Being an upper-class team last year, he will have to find new guys to step up.  With the loss of 2017 PG Alex Nieves to Brooks Debartolo, this will be an interesting year.

  • Chamberlain went 9-12 overall last season, 5-5 in district play.  Coach Christopher Synder always has a chance to stay competitive as he does each year.  Looking for new faces for the chiefs this year. Coach Synder states  “We were very injury prone and lost a lot of 1-2 point games last year and we look to be a lot better then last year.”

  • Blake – was 1-22 overall, 0-10 in district play. The Yellow Jackets never got off the ground last year. Coach Derek Sharp will need a culture change and accountability to turn around the worst season in schools history.  Who will be there guy?
