Best Players Ever

12 posts in this topic

Knoxville has two Juniors, one at Bearden and another at Farragut, who are the two top players in the State. My question is whether one district has ever had the two top players at the same time? While it will be fun to watch, I am still concerned that these two elite players risk burnout and injury by playing high school.

I have to agree with K2ruth on the Farragut player. Farragut also has a great libero. Shouldve won state last year. They will be a contender again this year. My daughter doesnt play at Farragut either.

No, you have no clue. These are the two best players in the state, the best I've ever watched in high school. I agree with fly, they should have won the state last year. The problem was not getting the ball to the best player when they needed it. Won't happen this year. She hits from all six positions and cannot be stopped.

I don't know how to respond. Hames at Webb is, in my humble opinion, the best player in Knoxville right now. Has a huge upside, and will continue to develope, but I would not say she is the "best ever? ". The Farragut player is solid, and a really good player, but not in the discussion. The Bearden middle has the size, and could be a special player. I think she is making a big mistake playing at Bearden, if I were her I would immediately transfer to Webb to play with Hames and be coached by Hames. Keep in mind "committing" is not the same as "signing" and I am not impressed with the Bearden coaching.

I wish I could remember names, but there have been 4-5 Brentwood kids over the last 18 years that were the best I have seen.  Brewster (Notre Dame) and the setter they had was incredible.  A few years ago I think DB had two of the best players on the same team.  Setter/Hitter combo.  Ravenwood had a setter (auburn) and hitter Kat (Alabama) combo that were incredible.  There was girl at Germantown the last time they won the state that was so good.   Anderson County has had a couple of combinations that have been great too.   Farragut has a good one now, but she isn't greatest ever quite yet.  She is a joy to watch though.   Tennessee is getting better and better.  Very exciting.
