COLUMBUS, Ohio — A total of four players from Meigs and Gallia counties were named to the AP All-Ohio boys basketball teams for the 2012-13 campaign, based on the recommendations of a media panel throughout the Buckeye State.
One member of the quartet is a repeat selection to the squad, and two-thirds of the Ohio Valley Publishing area programs were represented at the highest level of Ohio hoops.
Eastern senior Max Carnahan earned his second consecutive selection to the Division IV squad, garnering a special mention choice after averaging 16.4 points, 5.2 assists and 3.2 steals per game for the sectional champion Eagles (9-15). Carnahan was an honorable mention selection last season.
Southern sophomore Tristen Wolfe was also named to the special mention team in D-4 after averaging 16.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists for the Tornadoes (10-13). It is the first All-Ohio accolade for Wolfe in hoops.
South Gallia sophomore Brayden Greer was chosen to the honorable mention squad in Division IV after guiding the Rebels to a 7-17 overall mark. Greer posted nightly numbers of 16.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists for the Rebels while earning his first All-Ohio selection in hoops.
Gallia Academy senior Justin Bailey completed the local quartet with an honorable mention selection on the Division II squad. Bailey — a Tiffin University signee for baseball — averaged 15.0 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists for the 7-16 Blue Devils while earning his first All-Ohio honor in basketball.
All four players were either first- or second-team selections at the southeast district level, which qualified them for All-Ohio considerations.
