(Annapolis) An unforgettable career for the South Iron boys basketball team came to a close this year in the best way possible.
Area standout Brock Wakefield made the most of his final season in Annapolis as he helped lead the Panthers to the Class 1 State Championship and was named to his fourth-straight Boys Basketball Dream Team.
He says it means a lot to have been chosen by the coaches all four years.
The numbers were impressive once again this year for South Iron’s senior standout as Wakefield averaged 19 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5 assists, 3.3 steals, 1 block, and shot 61% on two-pointers, 32% on three-pointers, and 70% from the free-throw line.
Bringing home the second boys basketball state championship in school history had been the goal of this group of Panthers from the time they first stepped on the court together many years ago.
Wakefield says it was incredible to finally accomplish that feat after coming up short previously.
Wakefield has been a staple of the South Iron boys basketball team from the time he stepped foot on campus as a freshman.
Few fan bases can pack a gym like the Panthers faithful, and Wakefield says that has made playing in Annapolis truly special.
This season Wakefield earned his fourth-straight All-BRL selection, fourth-straight BRL Player of the Year selection, fourth-straight All-District selection, fourth-straight All-State selection, and helped lead the Panthers to a (25-4) record and the Class 1 State Championship.
He was also named the Boys Basketball Dream Team Player of the Year for the second-straight year and was tabbed the MBCA Class 1 Boys Basketball Player of the Year.
