In 2022 Cooper Flagg, a freshman at Nokomis High School in Newport won the Gatorade Basketball Player of the Year. Flash forward 2 years, and now a Senior at Montverde Academy in Florida, Cooper Flagg was awarded the 2024 National Gatorade Player of the Year!

Edit - Note in the original story, it was reported Cooper had won the Maine Gatorade Basketball player of the Year in 2021. It was in fact 2022 and the Nokomis Boys Basketball Team won the Gold Ball. I regret the mistake.
