Kenston senior Joshua Kain was named the Ohio Varsity Player of the Year Sunday evening.
“I am very honored to win this award,” Kain says. “I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my family, teammates, trainers, coaches, and all the people at my school who voted for me. That’s why I love Kenston so much. Even my teachers were voting for me. Ms. Verbic, who was a huge help, was going around tables having people vote for me. I am so thankful for that. Mr. C was also having kids vote for me in his class as well, which was so huge. The group of teammates I had this year were so special and fun to play with that I didn’t even think about my points or stats. I was just going out there and having fun which is why I was so successful this year. Things were just adding up such as 3 point records, and cracking 7th in all time scoring at Kenston. I didn’t even imagine doing something like that coming into the year. I took advantage of every game I played because I knew it was going to be my last. Winning this award just solidifies all of the hard work I put into this season and my last mark I hope to leave for my legacy at Kenston. Thank you Kenston for everything and glad to represent such an amazing school. GO BOMBERS!!”
Josh will end his career at Kenston with 839 points, and will continue his basketball and baseball careers at Walsh University. Congratulations, Josh!
