Braves News · Athlete of the Week: Alex Collins

Congratulations to Alex Collins for being named Athlete of the Week. The Sports and Entertainment Marketing classes at Socastee High School in partnership with the athletic department sponsor this weekly award.

Alex is a senior on the boys’ basketball team and has played the sport for 12 years. He is a starter and has been a key contributor for the Braves this season. “My favorite memory from the season was winning a Beach Ball game and then getting to play against the #1 team in the country,” Alex said. Alex and the Braves have had a successful season placing 3rd in the region and earning a playoff bid. Alex says that he feels good about the team’s chances of making a run in the playoffs. “We have to play together as a team and play great defense. Defense wins games,” Alex explained.

Coach Hilton is very pleased with the senior leadership and play of Collins this season. “If there is one player that I don’t have to worry about coming ready to play and giving me his all in practice, games, and the classroom, it is Alex Collins.  If I had a team full of Alex Collins, we’d be undefeated,” said Coach Hilton.
