SHUKC Player Spotlight: Brody Flaming (Mill Valley)

by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

2016 All SHUKC Offense and SHUKC Offensive POY candidate Brody Flaming has shared his highlights from his state championship season.  In what many believed to be a rebuilding effort at Mill Valley and possibly bumpy road for the first year starter turned into a quick masterpiece.  Flaming who posted 2700 yards 33 TD's, 12 INT's, 1297 rushing yards and 6 rushing TD's proved to be one of SHUKC's best playmakers this year.

Flaming seemed to have years worth of evolution in just one season.  He came out on fire the first few games through the air but hit a rough patch midway through the season.  This is a game of adjustments and teams seemed to have figured him out a bit as the INT's elevated.  His coaches and himself were able to make use of his legs to flip the script on those adjustments.  Flaming changed the game with his legs.  Posting one of the top rushing totals in SHUKC history while keeping teams more than honest through the air.  His ability to exploit defenses on the ground paved the way for Cameron Young to burst onto the scene and march toward the championship.

Check out his 2016 highlights.

Scores 12/2/2016

by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

I had a nice little plan setup for tonight.  I was going to go and watch the Schlagle Stallions at 5:30 and then run back into town to watch Washington play Desoto.  As I walk in the door at Van Horn the first game is about to end but eventually went to OT.  Schlagle and Benton then play a 2 OT thriller so in the end I only got to watch the one game.  That one game however was very entertaining to say the least.

Schlagle gets their first win under coach Prentiss Potts hitting two free throws with .4 seconds remaining in the 2nd OT.  The Stallions won 69-67 in a game that was sloppy but a lot of fun as both teams are building their identity.  Once the Stallions get settled into the full court pressure they are going to be a handful.

Dominique Sanders is going to provide senior leadership.  I said it on twitter that this kid is never going to be the tallest player on the court but he has more than enough heart and determination to make up for those inches.  A number of times the young man soared in to snatch a key rebound among all the bigs.  He took several charges as well.  I really like how he plays.

Washington defeats Desoto 76-70

Piper falls to Ottawa 87-77

Bonner Springs gets a good KVL win defeating Lansing 84-79

Turner falls to Shawnee Heights 81-61


Piper girls get a season opening win 92-20 over Ottawa. LaKya Leslie with a double double 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Sumner Academy falls to Bishop Miege 76-46

Bonner Springs falls to Lansing 39-28
