Trendon Watford named 2018 Mr. Basketball

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) - Mountain Brook High School junior Trendon Watford was named the Alabama Sportswriters Association’s Mr. Basketball Tuesday afternoon at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center.

Only a junior, Watford helped Mountain Brook win the Class 7A championship for the second year in a row.

Watford averaged 23.3 points on 63 percent shooting and averaged 12.3 rebounds this season.

He is also the first Birmingham-area Mr. Basketball since De’Runnya Wilson won at Wenonah in 2013.

Watford finished runner up in the voting a year ago. Alabama freshman John Petty was Mr. Basketball each of the past two season.

Watford now has a chance to match him next year as a senior.
