2020 Jamison Epps of Marion Co. He’s back again and continues to be stellar – racking up stats and leading his team to victory.

He followed that performance with the matchup against Adair County, putting up 15 points, 21 rebounds, and 2 assists. It’s easy to see why the 2020 G/W is being nominated with his consistent play.
