The inaugural Jets Fall League saw some solid performances week in and week out and this past week offered up a last installment as players battled for the league championship.  Front and center was sophomore Camren Edwards who helped power his team to the league title.  Here’s a look at a few who stood out this past weekend…

Note – Note listed in any particular order

2022 PG Camren Edwards Alton HS (IL)
The 6-1 sophomore guard is starting to find his stride. In league play, Edwards was tested on both ends of the ball playing head to head against several of the top guards in the Metro East area. Edwards led all scorers with 23 points in the semifinal matchup and led his team to an eventual Jets League Championship. Edwards is a scoring guard that is quick off the dribble. He does a great job of getting inside the defense and finishing or finding open teammates. Camren can knock down the open jumper out to three but is best using his quickness to attack off the dribble looking to create or score.  

2021 G Carson Prost Mount Vernon HS (IL)
Prost is fun to watch on both sides of the ball. The 6’2 combo guard can get buckets in a hurry.  He has deadly accuracy from three-point range. He moves well without the ball but is equally effective with the ball in his hands. Prost is a high motor player and any defender guarding him better be well-conditioned. His midrange pull-up is just as sick. He can go vertical and score it quickly after getting the defender to backpedal. Prost also showed that he can sit down and guard. His active hands disrupted the offense on several plays and led to easy buckets for his team and an eventual league title. 

2022 PF Dawson Algee O’Fallon HS
The 6’3 Dawson is an undersized forward that plays much taller than his height. Dawson’s muscular frame is hard to contain once he gets near the basket. Algee does a terrific job of getting that powerful frame from baseline to baseline on the break. Dawson has no problem finishing through contact. In fact, finish with contact is an understatement after watching Dawson finish with multiple defenders hanging on for dear life as he powered the ball to the basket. Dawson also has good speed and footwork that allows him to deftly move around larger defenders.

2020 G Ray’Sean Taylor Collinsville HS (IL)
Ray’Sean was involved in some of the most exciting battles of the league finals. The SIUE commit torched the nets in a battle against fellow SW Conference standout Ethyn Brown of Belleville East. Taylor has a sweet pull up game. He is a cerebral scorer, mostly taking what the defense gives him. Ray’Sean can get buckets at all three levels. His explosiveness and ball speed led to some jaw dropping finishes as he battled to get his team into the league finals. Taylor’s ability to shoot with range, pull up in the midrange and finish at the rim gives him the perfect trifecta of scoring options. 

2020 G Simon Wilson Mount Vernon (IL)
The 6’4 SG is a constant threat behind the arc. During league play, he has had one outburst of 10 3PFG and ending the game with 39pts. Wilson cemented his status as the top shooter in the league by winning the 3 point shooting contest. Wilson has nice size which he uses to dominate smaller players. Wilson is capable of using the dribble to create his own shot. He does a great job of moving without the ball and getting separation from his defender in transition. Simon thrived in the running game. He is more than capable of taking it the distance himself and finishing above the rim.
