Athlete of the Week | Feb. 16

By Staff | Feb 16, 2024

Marcus Kelley Jr.



Mariner Tritons

The Triton’s leading scorer helped propel Mariner to a District 5A-11 Championship last week, turning in a pair of double-double performances. Kelley Jr. scored 25 points with 12 assists versus Island Coast, and followed up with 24 points and 11 rebounds in the championship win over Cypress Lake.

“We felt good as a team heading into the playoffs. The group we have this year is special and willing to go to war with anyone for each other. We are focusing on improving as a unit, so staying in the gym together and traveling while playing some tough competition this summer got us ready for these moments.”
