The PTP boys basketball players of the week

The fans’ selection

G Bryce Johnson, Sr., Oldsmar Christian

In the offseason, Bryce Johnson transferred from Lake Nona to Oldsmar Christian. 

It took some time, but the move is paying off. 

The veteran is averaging more than 15 points per game and has helped the Eagles win nine straight as Monday. He also has hit some significant milestones, surpassing the 1,000-point career plateau earlier this month. 

Johnson’s best performance came nearly three weeks ago against Calvary Christian when he had 30 points, six rebounds and four assists. 

Fans agreed. Johnson received more than 52 percent of the votes (654) to beat out Brooks DeBartolo’s George Kimble, who had more than 32 percent (410 votes).

The PTP selection

G George Kimble, So., Brooks DeBartolo

George Kimble’s sophomore season started off strong. He scored more than 20 points in each of the first two games and helped the Phoenix start 5-0. 

By piling on the points, Kimble has become one of Brooks DeBartolo’s go-to players.

The production has continued. 

During the holiday break, Kimble was named MVP after leading the Phoenix to a title in their bracket at the Nature Coast Christmas Tournament.  

Kimble currently is the second-leading scorer on the team, averaging 13.3 points per game.
