(Cadet) Kingston Cougars senior Matt Nelson is the Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week.
Nelson lead Kingston to its first-ever district championship in boys’ basketball this weekend.
The do-it-all big man finished with 37 points, 18 rebounds and 11 blocked shots in the 2 district games.
That includes 20 points, 12 boards and 5 blocks in the Class 3 District 3 championship game against Greenville.
Cougars head coach Paul Hamilton couldn’t overstate how important Nelson has been to reaching this accomplishment.
Nelson became Kingston’s all-time leading boys’ hoops scorer earlier this season.
He’ll look to power the Cougars past DuBourg in the Class 3 state sectionals Wednesday.
As Athlete of the Week, he receives a T-shirt, a certificate and a coupon for a free entree at Applebee’s in Farmington.
