The Knights senior leader received the most votes from a panel of BCL West coaches.
Stuart Hall senior guard Miles Amos has earned the BCL West Player of the Year award after leading the Knights to 28 wins, one of the best seasons in program history. He is the second-ever Stuart Hall player to win this award and the first since Ikenna Nwadibia ‘10 in 2010.
Under head coach Charley Johnson, the Stuart Hall varsity basketball team won BCL West regular season and playoff titles, both occurring as part of an 18-game winning streak, which included an undefeated mark in league games.
Throughout the season, Miles and forward Nigel Burris, who joins Miles on the All-League First Team as the only sophomore, propelled the team offensively. Miles often had the defensive assignment of guarding the opponents’ best player. “Miles is a fierce competitor, great attacker and an absolute beast defensively,” Charley says. “He is a special athlete.”
Miles scored a career-high 33 points to go with 11 rebounds in an early-season double-overtime win over Miramonte. In the NorCal Division III Tournament, Miles scored a game-high 24 points against Palo Alto, but the Knights came up short in their bid for a return to the state championship.
Miles Amos scored 24 points in the final game of his high school career.
The annual Player of the Year award is decided by a panel of BCL West coaches. Charley, who could only pull for his senior leader because of a rule that prevents coaches from voting for their own players, says “Miles’ best basketball days are in the future. Wherever he goes is getting a heck of a player.”
