Elite 8 Ford Award 2017: Week 2
There were plenty of impressive performances in the recent Tournament of Champions. Couple that with consistency in the time since, and it help solidify our second pair of nominees for the 2017 Elite 8 Ford Award.
WEEK 2 GIRL: KENI JO LIPPE, ADAIR SENIOR GUARD/FORWARD
We have a second-time nominee out of Adair. Senior Keni Jo Lippe is a big reason the Lady Warriors are ranked No. 1 in Class 3A with a 12-2 overall record.
It was only fitting she performed well where she is signed on to play next fall; Oral Roberts. Lippe racked up a total of 75 points and 39 rebounds in the Tournament of Champions.
WEEK 2 BOY: ETHAN CHARGOIS, UNION SENIOR POWER FORWARD/CENTER
Ethan Chargois is the latest Tulsa-area player to sign with SMU and looking over the numbers, it's understandable why. So far this season, Chargois is averaging 18.7 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. Tuesday, Ethan posted 22 points in the Redskins win over Sand Springs. He's listed at 6'7", 225 lbs. and he's exceptionally good at utilizing that size and strength in the frontcourt.
Congratulations to Keni Jo Lippe of Adair and Ethan Chargois of Union for being our Week 2 Elite 8 Ford Award nominees.
