BTN: Cincy POY Finalists

By Greg Shoemaker | Featured Analyst

Kings' Brady Vanover is a finalist for the TSF Cincy Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight season.




Game breakers would be the best way to describe the 2012 finalists for our Cincinnati Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year. At any given moment these players could turn the tide of a game and that is what makes this group so special.

A fun fact about this crew is that Brady Vanover joins an elite cast becoming just the fourth defensive player to be named a finalist in back-to-back years. He joins Adolphus Washington (Taft/Ohio State), Joel Heath (Mount Healthy/ Michigan State) and Jordan Hicks (Lakota West/Texas) as members.

In this edition of By The Numbers we take a look at some outstanding candidates for our Player of the Year finalists on both sides of the ball in the Queen City.
