Lawrence Hill as a freshman at the 3rd Annual Arizona Preps Fall Showcase

This season was a bitter-sweet one for Stanford signee, 6’8” senior Lawrence Hill. While Hill signed with Stanford in the fall, and helped lead Deer Valley High School to the 5A State Semi-finals, only losing one game on the season before being ousted from the state tourney, Hill was unable to see his aspirations fulfilled by winning a state championship. In fact, Hill who was consistent all season long, and was rated among the top 50 seniors across America nationally, and finished as the fourth best overall player at last summer’s prestigious ABCD All-American Camp, was not even selected to this year’s all-state team.

Well, on Tuesday the Hill family received great news learning that their son was announced as the 2005 Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Arizona. This honor is given to the state’s top student-athlete for the year. Hill, a phenomenal student with a 4.3 Honors GPA, was more than deserving of the honor. While there were definitely some other student-athletes in the state that had as good or better seasons on the basketball court, Hill’s combination of athletics and academics were exemplery.

Hill will now be in the running for the 2005 Gatorade National Player of the Year (among 50 other nominees), which will be announced during the month of April. Here are all of the state winners for this year’s Gatorade Player of the Year honor…
