FIRST TEAM

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

KHADEEN CARRINGTON

Bishop Loughlin, Senior Guard

A four-year varsity player, Carrington graduates Bishop Loughlin as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 2,196 points. Known as one of the one of the city’s top scorers, Carrington, who averaged 24.2 points per game, greatly improved his jump shooting as a senior.

The Seton Hall-bound guard was named CHSAA Player of the Year by the league’s coaches, scored 42 points in the Brooklyn/Queens Diocesan final and guided the Lions to the CHSAA Class AA title game for a second straight year.

“He’s like a cat when he strikes, he’s going to strike. That’s the way he plays his game. He picks and chooses his moment. He observes everything,” Bishop Loughlin coach Ed Gonzalez said. “He’s very even keeled. He’s very patient and he feels out his opponents and those around him, knows good or bad.”

ISAIAH WHITEHEAD

Lincoln, Senior Guard

Touted as the next great player from Coney Island even before his freshman year at Lincoln, Whitehead met the lofty expectations as a four-year varsity player. The Seton Hall-bound guard averaged 23.5 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game, leading the Railsplitters to the PSAL Class AA semifinals. Whitehead was named a McDonald’s All-American, following in the footsteps of former Lincoln greats Stephon Marbury, Lance Stevenson and Sebastian Telfair.

MIKE WILLIAMS

Bishop Loughlin, Senior Guard

One of the top shooters in New York City, Williams averaged 17.3 points per game, helping guide the Lions to a second consecutive appearance in the CHSAA Class AA intersectional final. The 6-foot-2 Rutgers-bound guard reached the 1,000-point plateau for his career in a December win over St. Francis Prep. A three-year varsity player, Williams, who with Khadeen Carrington, part of arguably the best backcourt in the city, was also a tenacious defender and a tireless competitor.

RAWLE ALKINS

Christ the King, Junior Guard

The sophomore with junior eligibility was Mr. March for Christ the King, which won its second consecutive New York State Federation Class AA title. The athletic 6-foot-5 guard, who averaged 16.6 points per game, hit several big shots, including 3-pointers in the CHSAA final and the Federation semifinals. Alkins already has offers from a host of major Division I schools, including Cincinnati, Villanova, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Fordham, Hofstra, Minnesota and Miami, while also drawing interest from Kentucky and North Carolina.

GLENN SANABRIA

St. Peter’s, Senior Guard

One of the most underrated players in the city during the season, the sharp-shooting Sanabria helped guide St. Peter’s to its first appearance in the CHSAA Class AA intersectional semifinals since 2002. The 5-foot-10 senior guard, a two-year starter who averaged 13.6 points per game, has verbally committed to St. Francis College in Brooklyn. Sanabria also received a scholarship offer from Central Connecticut State.

COACH OF THE YEAR

RON NACLERIO

Benjamin Cardozo

His team wasn't the favorite to win the PSAL championship. In fact, they weren't even supposed to be at Barclays Center. Yet, there were the Judges when it was all said and done, capturing the Class AA title for the first time since 1999. The basketball lifer did a masterful job with a young team that was supposed to be a year away from contending and nearly guided Cardozo to a win over eventual New York State Federation 'AA' champions Christ the King in the semifinals in Albany.
