Even if the campbell guy loses he still has the best in game dunk! He hit a 360 dunk in a game against south cobb high

Corey Perkins proves that a big man can have grace and style with power to the boards!!!!!!!

Corey Perkins is also one of the most humble, team players I have ever seen. His dunks in an actual game setting are unbelieveable. Maybe UPICKEM should add a feature of actual in game dunks to future contests.

Hey AJC… region championship games were played this past weekend. Maybe AJC sports should mention the results and start talking abou the first round of the state tournament in one of the best high school basketball markets in the country.

@really. citron is not selfish, and he plays hard as hell. matts my boy and he busts it as hard as he can every second when he plays. if thats selfish than your obviously not watching the same guy, whenever we play at the gym he plays harder than anybody else and cares about winning more than anybody I know. competitive people want to be a part of a won game, not watch it from the sides, dont talk crap about my boy

Oh so players need to transfer to big basketball powers, completely disregard academics, and break GHSA rules to be a good basketball player? Woodward is a 10x better school academically than Milton or Miller Grove haha. And I don’t think you know anything about the college interest that players are receiving if you are only “an outsider looking in”. I’m not about to sit here and insult highschool kids like you have been doing the entire course of this contest… Give it a rest man.

and I’m not insulting Citron, he is a good ball player, but in NO WAY a better dunker than half of these guys here, yet all of his apparent classmates, including you, have blown up every post on here talking him up, when it’s pretty obvious he is not the same caliber as the rest of these guys.
