JRUE HOLIDAY

CAMPBELL HALL Campbell Hall can refer to:
  • a residence hall at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech)
  • Campbell Hall School in North Hollywood, California
, SENIOR

Sometimes you can say a player "did it all," and in Holiday's case, it's really true.

A terrific all-around player who averaged 23.1 points, 9.4 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 4.2 steals, the 6-foot-3 guard led Campbell Hall to a section title and a state championship for the third time in his four-year career.

Holiday finished as the Valley area's second-leading all-time scorer, but he probably could have scored a lot more points if he did not often sit out during the fourth quarter with Campbell ahead by a large margin.

And as for style points, there was no one more exciting on the break -- a great dunker whose spectacular moves and tenacious defense made Holiday the area's most fun player to watch.

Holiday was the Olympic League Player of the Year, the Southern Section Div. III Player of the Year, Cal-Hi Sports' Mr. Basketball and the Gatorade National Player of the Year.

So yes, he did it all.

coach of the year

TERRY KELLY

Campbell Hall

Yes, he had a superstar in Jrue Holiday, but Campbell Hall coach Terry Kelly deserves plenty of credit for building a dynasty, as the Vikings won a section title and a state championship for the third time in four seasons. Kelly broke in a freshman point guard, Austin McBroom, who consistently improved and excelled during the playoffs. And Kelly also did a fine job developing Holiday's supporting cast, as Dallas Rutherford, James Johnson James Johnson may refer to:

Artists, authors, and musicians

  • James B. Johnson, author of Science Fiction novels
  • James Johnson (musician), minimalist electronic musician
  • James Johnson (musicologist), late 18th-century Scottish musicologist
 and Keegan Hornbuckle all performed better than the previous season. Kelly is a tough coach -- he has no problem openly criticizing one of his players for taking a bad shot even when the Vikings are leading by 30 in the final minutes -- and he has always stressed defense first.
