Mustang All-State Basketball honoree Justice Scott drives against Dresden.
 

On the heels of a phenomenal prep basketball career, Huntingdon Senior Justice Scott was named to the Class A Boys All-State First Team.
Joining Scott on the first team were Mr. Basketball winner Desonta Bradford of Humboldt, Derrick Spears (MTCS), Levi Woods (Meigs Co.), Luke Shepherd (Grace Christian)Landon Baldwin (Clarkrange), Stanley Valentine (Hampton), Jeremiah Martin (Mitchell), Naba Echols (Mitchell), Jermarcus Franklin (BTW), Tucker Campbell (Adamsville) and Q.D. Cox (Boyd-Buchanan).
During an interview with The McKenzie Banner, Huntingdon High School Head Basketball Coach and HMS Principal Jonathan Kee said, "I am so pleased that Justice was named to the All-State. I've also been notified that he will soon be recognized as All-West Tennessee by The Jackson Sun. These allocades testify to Justice's work ethic and dedicated efforts to turn himself into a complete basketball player. I encouraged him to work on his defensive skills, and through hard work in the gym last summer and good practice habits, he became as strong a player on defensive as he was offensively. Justice led our team this season in blocks and steals. In addition, he averaged 12 rebounds and scored 24 points per-game. Without question, he was the staple and leader of our team."
Scott's powerful offensive skills drew the attention of other teams during post-season play.
Kee said, When we faced defending and eventual state champion Union City in the Regionals, they double-teamed Justice. I told our players to get the ball to him. When they did, Justice would pass to an unguarded teammate for the basket."
Shining against marquee talent, Scott scored 38 points against Union City to cap his stellar prep career.
Kee concluded, "Justice has visited Union and Bethel and received interest from other universities. It will be interesting to see where he ends up plays collegiately. Needless to say, I'm very proud of him."
