Chillicothe Cavaliers

1. Anthony Hitchens 2008 - All time Ross County scoring leader. State Champion

2. Mark Bayless -1974? Went on to play at OSU

3. Garin Veris - 1981? Probably the greatest athlete to ever play at Chillicothe

Throw in a ton of names to round out the top 5 but these 3 stick out.

Very very few kids at Warren play varsity as 9th or 10th graders. Back during the 70’s & 80’s this almost NEVER occurred.
French and Hall both dressed varsity as freshmen and started varsity as sophomores.

Chillicothe in no particular order But I feel Mark Bayless was best ever and Garin Veris, Humpty Hitchens, Gordon Mickey, Neil Johnston, are all in the CHS Hall of Fame.

Went to both SW and The burg and seen a lot of great talents from both schools. I’m not going by stats because that doesn’t tell the story for some of these talents.

South Webster
1. Aldridge - big physical kid who could do it all, run pass shoot and rebound to sum it all up he’s about as good of a power forward this area has ever seen. State Champ, D1 player, Played professionally
2. Roberts 6’8 jump shooter played d1, drafted in the nba draft but chose the wrong sport
3.Justin Lower quick, lights out shooting and relentless Scoring machine, had little to no talent to work with played naia and should’ve stayed with the game longer
4.)Josh Campbell - crazy good defender, strong, fast, lights out shooting and probably one of the better players in the area after school, state champ, played naia
5. Austin Loop let’s start with smart,long, lights out shooter, district champ ,strong ,played 4 seasons at Marshall and had the most success of any on my list

Burg
1.) Andrew Burleson Big, Strong ran like a deer and was a athlete first, let’s just say a athletic freak,multiple district titles, played d1 could of definitely went over seas
2.) Drew Spradlin super basketball smart long, strong and a lights out shooter, 4 year starter, multiple final fours played d1 ,
3.) Cam Miller super long and lanky ball skills, lights out shooter played d1 an naia played over seas multiple final fours
4.) John Eaton was only told of how good he was not sure on his statistics or achievements
5.) Seth Cowgill super athletic, fast , probably the most talent as far as basketball as any on burgs top5 played with 2 on the list so his stats was probably not as good as some of these guys, lights out shooter, crazy wing on ball defender, multiple final fours,

He was the red headed kid. He played from 03 - 07, graduated a year after they won state, was a 3-4 year starter, single handily carried them to the regional finals the year after state, and was a few turnovers away from going back to the final four. The kid was a stud in school but after school he blew up similar to Kyle Miller of Piketon who should be #1 on Piketons list.

Hmm.. I guess I’d remember him if he were one of the top 5 players ever from SW. But, I don’t seem to remember him.
What NAIA school did he play at?

Can't answer the 2nd part, but he was their 6th man on the State Championship team. Didn't start for 4 years, because I didn't see his name mentioned in the Semi's in what would've been his Freshman year. Was a pretty good player, but I doubt Top 5 ever at SW.

They didn't reach the Regional Finals that next year either, lost by 7 in the Sweet 16.

I’m very familiar with these two schools as well... As Vito & Ham mentioned Campbell shouldn’t be on the top 5 list. No disrespect, as he was a very good Hs basketball player. But you can’t justify putting him ahead of two other Jeeps from the same state title team (Brigham Waginger & Jordan Lower). People tend to overlook players who play alongside greats like Aldridge. No issue with the other guys on the list but I’d throw Waginger, Jo. Lower, Eric McClintic, Jeff Bradley, B Dyer, and Michael Coriell into the mix for a top 5 spot. The Jeeps have a very respectable b-ball history for such a small school.

Onto the Burg list, I like that you mentioned Seth Cowgill. He had more skill than other guys he played with that went on to D1, not sure why he didn’t continue his basketball career.... he definitely could have. No issues at all with the Burg list, all those guys were great. But I’m not familiar with Burg b-ball beyond the 90s.

Random thought: Cam Miller grew up at South Webster, playing with the guys on the state champ team as kids before moving away in elementary school. Can you imagine if he was on that team?

The starting 5 for the 2006 South Webster state team was
Waginger,Lower,Campbell,Aldridge,Decamp. My first part of the post said statistically my top 5 might not make sense - for guys like Campbell and Cowgill both because they played with extremely talented rosters and was both on a team with a professional player in Miller and Aldridge. But both guys were extremely gifted basketball wise, I think both ended up with some off court issues. As far as Miller from Sw I believe he bounced around from Eastern, Minford, Sw and Burg. Minford with Cowgill and Miller there would have been a game changer as Cowgill was actually a Falcon as well.

Eastern Pike Eagles

1-Mark Cochenour-1984-6’5 forward——-Eastern’s all time leading scorer with over 1800 points,lights out shooter, great rebounder, can’t quite remember but I think he went to a small college in North Carolina for his college ball, his son Hunter is now a sophomore at Eastern ,and is a lights outshooter himself.

2-Darren King-1989-6’3 forward———could be listed as #1 , I have him at 2 based on points, scored over 1500 points, great shooter , rebounder ,and defensive player, did everything well, played his college ball at Shawnee State.

The next 3 are tough for me ,because they didn’t finish their careers at Eastern , but they did play freshman-junior years at Eastern, so this is who I am listing, but it’s debatable.

3-Eric Caudill-1992-6’2 point guard——had he played his senior year at Eastern , he would b in the conversation for #1, great athlete, shooter, defensive player, he could do it all. I think he played college ball at Alderson Broaddus in West Virginia, before transferringto Rio grande.

4-Doug Williams-1999 6’5 point guard——-another player that had he finished his career at Eastern he could have been in the conversation for #1, an all around great player, 6’5 point guards are rare in southern Ohio, could jump out of the gym,played his college ball at Miami University and is the current head coach at Georgetown High School.

5-Darrell Howard-1989-6’7 center——-some eagle fans may have someone else here , but for me , Darrell is who I am choosing , prolly best athlete to ever come through Eastern , could jump as well as anyone I have seen around here, had a few dunks that I will never forget.


I know this is a boys list, but I feel like I should list Eastern’s best Female player of all time Marlene Stollings-1993-6’1 guard——— she is the all-time leading scorer in the history of Ohio high basketball for both boys and girls, with 3514 career points, 13 made 3 pointers in a game is a state record , 317career made 3 pointers, scored 1022 points as a Senior, which is 2nd all time for a single season, made 760 career free throws , which is 2nd all time for a career , just an unbelievable career ,one that will prolly never be matched around Southern Ohio, she played college ball at Ohio State before transferring to Ohio University , and she is the current head women’s basketball coach at the University of Minnesota

Played college ball at Akron and James Madison. He then played overseas for several years. He is back in Ohio now last I heard. He is the all time Ross county scoring leader. His record will be broke next week as Dylan Swingle is only 12 away from it now.

EPN, u put together a good list. The first 2 is spot on. If I was to include players that spent all 4 years at Eastern I would have Matt Heins and Neil Leist on there too. The fifth spot to me is a toss up between Dustin Alley and Zac Alexander. I may lead toward Zac because of the assists he has. I believe he’s Eastern all time assist leader. Alley may hold the rebound record for Eastern though. Little to young to have remembered him playing. But been told he was a monster on the boards.

TripleDouble,
I agree with u completely, and I prolly should have just made the list to include players that spent all 4 years at Eastern,and if I would have the players u listed is who I would have had on my list.

1.Cochenour
2.King
3.Neil Leist
4.Zac Alexander
5.Matt Hines or Dustin Alley, that’s a tough one to choose for me so I will call it a tie!!

Some other notable players that could be in the discussion are.
LarryCaudill Sr
Arnold King
Rick Nance
pat Nance
Larry Caudill Jr
Chad lands
Josh Thacker
Ethan Leist
And I am sure there are a few I am forgetting ,but these are a few off the top of my head.

Only 2 from Warren have over 1,000? That's crazy
Like Warrior Blue said, very rare for any freshman at Warren to play varsity at all because of talent level at school and the competition that Warren faces in Division II every year. Of note is that there are a few players for sure that were very near 1000 points, but fell just short. I don't know the exact numbers but I believe three other Warrior players were over the 950 career mark: Austin Cunningham, Kyler Dennis, and Curt Morris

There may be others that were close, but those are three that I know of. Josh Huffman from this year's team is probably at around 900 career points.

I was not aware that only 2 previous Warriors were members of the 1000 point club. I guess that is an exclusive list for sure.

I would go back further to get some of the best players. I believe that Joe Race, Brian Bays, Jeff Meadows, Jack Miller and going way back Darryl Pace. Brian Bays and Joe Race were rated in the top 100 high school players in the country in 1976.
Wheelersburg

1. Todd Staker-6’3” 1981-1984-started as a Sophomore-guard who could jump out of the gym. Played on two Final Four teams, 82 as a Sophomore and 84 as Senior. Burg made it to the finals in 84 losing to future NBA player Jerome Lane and Akron St. Vincent 75-71. Todd averaged around 30 in the tourney that year.

2. Andrew Burleson-6’6”, 1998-2002- started as a Freshman-could play about anywhere. Sweet shot and good hops. Could handle the ball very well for being 6’6”. I believe he is the all time leading scorer at Burg.

3. Brad Walke-6’1”, 1980-1983-started as a Sophomore. Guard who could shoot from anywhere or take you off the dribble. If three point shot would have be around he would have scored some serious points. Played on the Burg Final Four team of 81-82.

4. Jonathon Eaton-6’1”-1991-1995-started as a Freshman come tourney time helping lead A Burg team, that I believe had a losing record going to the tourney, all the way to the Regional Final. Playmaker who was good at driving to the basket and dishing off or making the shot. Helped lead Burg to the Final Four in 95 where they lost to a strong Orrville team in the state finals. Upset a strong Cols Bishop Hartley team in the semifinals.

5. Cam Miller-6’7”-2004-2007-started as a Sophomore. Good balhandler for his size. Could shoot the three or beat you off the dribble for a thunderous dunk. Helped lead Burg to back to back Final Fours in 2006 and 2007.

Mark Cochenour 1984.. scored 1801 points in career(most all time at Eastern for boys), 727 rebounds(3rd most all time),led Eagles to district championships in 83 and 84. Averaged 32.7ppg his senior season earning Ohio player of the year Honor..also holds Eastern single game scoring record with a 50 point Game his senior year.


2.Darren King 1989- 1530 points and 744 rebounds which are both 2nd place all time at Eastern for boys.Very good shooter that made 69 3 pointers in career.King led Eastern to district titles in 89 and 90 only to run into Columbus Wherle at Regionals..great all around player and had solid career at Shawnee.

3.Neil Leist 1981-1247 career points,267 career assists( both 6th all time at school), point guard of 1981 District championship team.

4.Zac Alexander 2006-Schools all time assists leader with 421, scored 1310 points(4th all time),court vision was unreal as he was one of the best passers I've seen.He could shoot it as well hitting 96 threes in career. Led Eastern to 17-5 and 19-4 records his Jr and sr years with a league title his Sr season and sectional titles both years in a stacked D4 as Webster won state in 06, some GREAT matchups those 2 years vs Thourghman and Clay.

5.Matt Hines 2001- Very athletic 6"5 scored 1289 points (5th all time), could play inside or out,678 rebounds(4th all time)led team to district final in 00 and league title in 01.Played and had good career at Marietta College.

So many to choose from so I'm sure some would argue those 5..also had Chad Lands 2013 who scored 1183 points (7th all time),(171 career assists). Made most threes in school history with 136.. was leader of regional runner up team in 2012.Great player. Josh Thacker 2015-Scored 1125 points, averaged 21.5ppg as a senior and is 2nd all time in made threes with 127.


Other very good players were Larry Caudill-1991Who averaged 21.8 as a senior, Mike Harris-1967 scored 25ppg as a senior,Ethan Leist2017 ended career 3rd all time in scoring with 1380 points, Justin McBee 1990 who hit 93 threes and was a great athlete and Ballhandler.,Dusten Alley(1041 points) and school all time leading rebounder with 762, Terry Smith 1975- a very good pg that dished out 313 career assists,Arnold King (1977) was very good player for Eastern,he shot 86%from the FT line in '77,a school record..Pat Nance(1969),Rick Nance(1971) and Don Arnett(1974) were all 1k point scorers. Others Eastern should be able to claim(lol) that transferred were Doug Williams (1999)6"5 point guard who might be No.1 on list if he stayed his senior year at Eastern,great athlete, very high basketball IQ and Went to D1 Miami (OH),now a very good varsity coach..Darrel Howard 1989-6"6 center that went to Waverly his Sr year, an amazing athlete that was key piece to 1988 team that finished regular season undefeated and Ranked#3 in state (Eastern highest ranking ever) probably has most dunks in school history.
..Eric Caudill 1992,Kyle Vulgamore 2003 both very good 1k point scorers who like Doug also finished there career's at Piketon.

I'm sure I'm missing some I should mention but this post is way too long as it is 😀

Eastern Pike Eagles

1-Mark Cochenour-1984-6’5 forward——-Eastern’s all time leading scorer with over 1800 points,lights out shooter, great rebounder, can’t quite remember but I think he went to a small college in North Carolina for his college ball, his son Hunter is now a sophomore at Eastern ,and is a lights outshooter himself.

2-Darren King-1989-6’3 forward———could be listed as #1 , I have him at 2 based on points, scored over 1500 points, great shooter , rebounder ,and defensive player, did everything well, played his college ball at Shawnee State.

The next 3 are tough for me ,because they didn’t finish their careers at Eastern , but they did play freshman-junior years at Eastern, so this is who I am listing, but it’s debatable.

3-Eric Caudill-1992-6’2 point guard——had he played his senior year at Eastern , he would b in the conversation for #1, great athlete, shooter, defensive player, he could do it all. I think he played college ball at Alderson Broaddus in West Virginia, before transferringto Rio grande.

4-Doug Williams-1999 6’5 point guard——-another player that had he finished his career at Eastern he could have been in the conversation for #1, an all around great player, 6’5 point guards are rare in southern Ohio, could jump out of the gym,played his college ball at Miami University and is the current head coach at Georgetown High School.

5-Darrell Howard-1989-6’7 center——-some eagle fans may have someone else here , but for me , Darrell is who I am choosing , prolly best athlete to ever come through Eastern , could jump as well as anyone I have seen around here, had a few dunks that I will never forget.


I know this is a boys list, but I feel like I should list Eastern’s best Female player of all time Marlene Stollings-1993-6’1 guard——— she is the all-time leading scorer in the history of Ohio high basketball for both boys and girls, with 3514 career points, 13 made 3 pointers in a game is a state record , 317career made 3 pointers, scored 1022 points as a Senior, which is 2nd all time for a single season, made 760 career free throws , which is 2nd all time for a career , just an unbelievable career ,one that will prolly never be matched around Southern Ohio, she played college ball at Ohio State before transferring to Ohio University , and she is the current head women’s basketball coach at the University of Minnesota
Didn't Howard graduate from Waverly.
When I was a kid I was ball boy for a church team my dad coached. They traveled all other the state and played in tournament. Arnold King was on that team and he was my childhood idol. He was prolly in his mid 20s and man he could light it up.

Well I'm not going to say I have the best knowldge to post this and I need to preface this by saying Mr. Kretzer and Miss Campbell are the only two players mentioned that I am old enough to see play a game.
But from Waverly: There was Thompson played at OSU (maybe Bob?) He needs to be near the top.
Denny Thompson and Phil Miller have to be somewhere on the list I think Thompson was 1970 and Miller was 1971. (I belive both played at OU). Jake Kretzer played at Akron and broke Thompson's and later Teresa Campbell's all-time school scoring records. Others that maybe in the conversation: Rick Eblin, John Shoemaker, Charlie Helman (who was on the state champonship basbeball team in '54) played basketball at Ohio State.
Waverly had a regional runner-up team in 1980 (I think). I'm sure someone from that group should be on the list.
I'm sure other Waverly posters can add names that I missed.

Waverly was regional runnerup to Portsmouth in 1980. The Trojans defeated the Tigers 49-48. The Tigers had a very good post player, 6-4 Onno Steger, and a standout guard, Rick Teeters. Gabby Smith was the coach. Teeters missed a shot from the top of the key as time expired. Waverly upset undefeated Dresden Tri Valley in the regional semifinal 48-45. I don't know if there's a connection to this or not, but Upper Arlington just recently had a player who I believe graduated last year whose name is Onno Steger. Maybe father/son?
