Accolades continue rolling in for senior basketball player Zeb Richardson as he was named to the NCpreps.com 2A All-State team.
Richardson is the only men’s player from the Mountain Valley Athletic Conference on the 1A or 2A lists, and is joined by the best 2A players the state has to offer.
Alongside Richardson on the All-State team were Martin Alston from Granville Central, Devonte Boykinds of East Rutherford, Clay Byrd of East Burke, Justin Cousin from Graham HS, Josh Dawson from Kinston HS, Gabe Devoe from Shelby HS, Draquaine Floyd from Fairmont HS, Deshawn High of Bunn HS, Jamison Jeffers of Burlington-Cummings, J.T. Miller from Clinton HS, Dominique Shoffner of Reidsville, Josh Spainhour from West Stokes, Josh Wieland of Northwood HS, and Ashley Williams of Croatan. Shelton Mitchell from Cuthbertson HS was named 2A Player of the Year. Mitchell and his Cuthbertson squad fell to Kinston on Saturday in the 2A state title game.
Being selected to the All-State team is certainly one of the biggest honors anybody from the state can receive. Richardson joins several other big-time basketball players like Greg McClinton, Allerik Freeman and Kennedy Meeks, who have several Division 1 scholarship offers from schools in the ACC, Big East, and SEC conferences, among others.
Richardson has yet to announce where he will play his college basketball. Richardson helped lead the Huskies to a 25-win season and the #1 overall seed in the Western Region of the 2A playoffs. Ashe saw its season end against Shelby in the second round.
