From the sidelines: FWHS senior Vaughn Weems has grown tremendously in a short amount of time during this season. To see him excel at a high level consistently throughout the season and ultimately received the highest honor of league MVP is beyond outstanding and well-deserved. The intangibles that most often get overlooked and not reflected in the stats would be Vaughn’s ability in doing the little things that matter most to our team culture and values. Take charges, defensive deflections, vocal leader, and remain emotionally and mentally composed that provided consistency to our team success all season. We are excited that he has received this recognition award and are very proud of him.
