  • On Jordan Mills' behalf one thing has to be remembered also against Sidney the #1 rated team in the district he scored 29, 28, and 26 points in the three games he played them with their top defender Winholtz guarding him. Against Scottsbluff he scored 19, 16, and 21 in District final with their top defender Trent Harris guarding him, and he guarded Winholtz and Harris every game they played and held them way below their avg points per game. Regardless, everyone has there opinion but, in my eyes definitely a 1st team all stater, granted they didn't make it to the big show but game film and stats show it all.

  • You have a very valid point, my man. In retrospect, he probably should have been 1st team. I do not have the luxury of receiving ballots from coaches like the World-Herald, Journal-Star, and Huskerland Prep Report writers enjoy. After the fact, several coaches I spoke with concured with your opinion. As I stated in my blog (after it was published by the way), Jordan may have been the best player in Western Nebraska. If I had an all-star team, he would certainly be one of my 1st picks. The young man and his basketball talent(s) certainly has my utmost respect. I appreciate your comments, by the way.

  • Absolutely, like you said it is a blog and everyone has a right to their opinion, and I think your right on track. Love reading your blogs and love the honesty. Enjoy your postings. Thanks for writing.

  • I think that if anybody should be moved from 2nd team to first team, its Vance Jansen from Blair. The kid is a stud. In my opinion, the second best player in class B behind the Trueblood kid. Jansen played a much more consistent schedule of class B teams while Jordan mills played 9 C1 or C2 teams. Ive seen them both play and Mills is a good player, but Jansen is about 10 steps ahead of him from what ive seen.

  • He is 10 steps ahead of everyone in class B besides Trueblood

  • It was very difficult to find stats on Janssen. I was fortunate to find his points per game average. I know for a fact this young man was a terrific football player because I saw him play. Pure football player without a doubt. Wish I could have uncovered some additional stats for Vance. So go the drawbacks of not having coaches send you all-state nominations. Unfortunately you are going to miss some Husker61.
