The Little Caesars Player of the Week – Jovann Thompson
12 months ago Andrew Luberda 0
County Line Preps is pleased to have a sponsorship agreement with specific Little Caesars locations in Queen Creek and Coolidge.
Little Caesars, home of the Hot-‘N-Ready pizza, will sponsor the Player of the Week and Player of the Month awards as part of our agreement.
Each week, CountyLinePreps.com will announce the Player of the Week, accompanied by a Q&A with that week’s winner.
The Player of the Week will receive a gift certificate, redeemable for a two-liter bottle of soda, a pepperoni or cheese pizza, and an order of Crazy Bread that will be honored at one of the two aforementioned Little Caesars locations.
Additionally, the Player of the Week automatically qualifies for the Player of the Month Award, which will be determined by a poll that will be posted on our County Line Preps Twitter account during the final week each month.
The Player of the Month will receive a plaque and a $25 Little Caesars gift card.
Now that we’ve provided details of both awards, we are pleased to announce this week’s Little Caesars Player of Week:
Coolidge High School
6’2 187 – Guard/Sm Forward
Thompson averaged more than 21 points per game in his team’s first three games of the season (Nov. 28-30), all of them wins. He scored at least 20 points during that stretch on 28-for-43 shooting from the floor – a 65 percent clip.
More recently, the Bears’ swingman totaled 52 points in back-to-back games versus Catalina and Joy Christian in the Joy Christian School Winter Start Tournament, where he was named Tournament MVP after leading the Bears to the championship.
So proud of this team for overcoming all the adversity that lead to this championship. Wish the whole team could have been here to celebrate but so many guys stepped up in their absences. Perfect end to the first half of the season. Congrats to @jovannthompson2 for MVP! #BearDown pic.twitter.com/IjIQgxwkPz
