All-ROWAN COUNTY FIRST TEAM

Jamarius Hairston, Carson, 6-4 Sr. — First team all-district. All-North Piedmont Conference. Christmas tournament MVP. Co-player of the year in Rowan County. Led Carson to the best season in school history (26-3) with 20.5 points per game. Eighth in county history and second in school history with 1,659 career points. Signed with Lander.

Caleb Mauldin, West, 6-8 Sr. — District Player of the Year. North Piedmont Conference Player of the Year. Scored 2,028 career points for third place in county history. Rowan’s leading scorer as a senior with 23.4 points per game and also averaged 12 rebounds per game.

Trell Baker, Salisbury, 5-9 Sr. — Averaged 14.8 points per game with a combination of layups and 3-pointers while leading Salisbury in assists. The county’s quickest player, he was the driving force in Salisbury’s spectacular 27-4 season. Surpassed 1,000 career points during the state playoffs. All-Central Carolina Conference.

Jailen Williams, Carson, 6-0 Sr. — The drive-and-dish playmaker for a high-powered Carson machine that averaged 74.1 points per game.

Brevin Goodlett, North, 6-4 Jr. — Scored 13.7 points per game and is headed for a 1,000-point career. With Cooke and Goodlett on the glass, North could be the county’s best team next season. All-Yadkin Valley Conference.

Bailey Graham, South, 6-2 Sr. — Excellent shooter averaged 13.5 points per game and rebounded well enough to post some double-doubles. All-Central Carolina Conference.

Elton Hooper, East, 6-7 Jr. — The Mustangs’ leading scorer with 10.6 points per game. He’s still getting better and could have a big senior season. All-North Piedmont Conference.
