JHS Red Raiders, Stephen Carlson and Zack Panebianco, were recently named to the Basketball Coaches Association of New York, Inc, (BCANY) Academic All-State Team for 2014-2015. The JHS Red Raider Varsity Basketball Team was also named a BCANY All-Academic Team.
In order to qualify, an individual player had to be a junior or senior on the varsity basketball team with a minimum scholastic average of 90 and must have been named as a 1st or 2nd team All-Star by their league, or section or local media.
“This is a real honor for our basketball program,” said JHS Basketball Coach and Athletic Director, Ben Drake. “A few weeks ago, these two young men were named All-State for their accomplishments on the basketball court. To follow that up and also be named to the Academic All-State Team is very special. These young men will leave JHS as two of the most decorated scholar-athletes in school history. Our community should celebrate turning out such great products and I am proud to have coached them.”
