CONGRATULATIONS to SP8 Ball Training Student Jared Clawson and his Edison Eagles for advancing to the VHSL Class 5 State Semi Finals! So proud this kid! All the work he's put in on The Vertimax is paying off!
The Eagles (26-9) advance to their first state semifinal appearance since 1970 after a wild day on Friday that included a lengthy traffic delay en route to MHS. Thanks to a huge fourth quarter from Edison guard Jared Clawson, his team will be moving on when it didn’t look so great for the Eagles through three quarters.
Facing its largest deficit of the game, 45-35, with seven minutes to play, Clawson put Edison on his back.
After an untimely technical by Albemarle senior guard J’Quan Anderson, Clawson scored 10 straight points — after going scoreless through three quarters — capped by a 3-pointer that quickly trimmed the AHS advantage down to three with 5:46 to play.
Less than a minute later, Clawson’s spin and floater in the lane over Patriot defenders tied the score at 48-apiece, and the momentum had clearly swung over to the Eagles’ bench. “He’s just so poised,” said Edison coach Terry Henderson of the sophomore Clawson’s ability to come through in crunch time. “Offensively, he keeps us in games, and if he’s not scoring he’s just managing things for us and it’s huge.
