Story by Lexie Bray

Central High student Alex Fountain was named 2011- 2012 player of the year. “It’s a real honor, but I couldn’t have done it without my teammates,” said Fountain. He was recently on the Channel 8 news for Prep Extra Player of the Week, “It was a fun experience. It was really interesting having all the cameras and lights on you, but I was nervous!”

“Alex received player of the year because he has a good work ethic, he works hard during the season and the off season, and he has a good team; you have to be good, but so does your team,” says Coach Layne. Alex plays on an AAU team, The Tennessee Travelers, sponsored by Nike. His future plans are to play Division One college basketball, get his masters degree in athletic training, and play pro-basketball overseas.
