Poca 4th Grade All-Stars Repeat as KVYBL Champions!


Front Row:  Jackson Toney, Christian Lerose, Kambel Meeks, Trey Dunn

  Back Row:  Coach Dallas Dunn, Ethan Maynor, Isaac McKneely, Head Coach Dan McKneely, Gabriel Keech, and Logan Saunders.

 Poca 4th grade All-Stars finished up the regular season with a 13-2 record and went into the playoffs with a #2 Seed.  Their first round opponent was a tough Hurricane team, but they prevailed 46-34.  In the second round it was gut check time.  Down 31-19 half way through the 3rd quarter, Poca stepped up its defense and scored the last 13 points of the game to win 32-31, holding Dunbar scoreless for over 8 minutes. 

     That set up a rematch with the South Hills Patriots in the Championship game.  A team whose only loss in 3 years was to this same Poca team last year in the Championship. South Hills was looking better than ever this year and beat Poca by 12 in the regular season 37-25, but our Lil Poca Dots believed they could win.  Down only 20-17 at the half, it was our man-to-man defense that proved to be the difference in the 2nd half as we limited South Hills to only 13 more points to our 22.  Poca Dots win their 2nd Championship in as many years 39-33.  Congratulations Dots on a great achievement considering we are a small AA Community competing with mostly AAA areas.  The Poca 4th Grade All-Stars are as follows:

#00  Jackson "Handles"  Toney

#1  Christian "The Chosen One"  LeRose

#10 Isaac "Big Mac"  McKneely

#14  Kambel "King James"  Meeks

#15  Trey "The Highlight"  Dunn

#20  Logan "The Terminator"  Saunders

#23  Gabriel  "The Franchise"  Keech

#35  Ethan "Mo Mo"  Maynor

Coaches:  Danny McKneely, Dallas Dunn

Scorekeeper:  Chris LeRose

Also like to give thanks to all the other coaches who volunteered their time and helped Poca have another great all-star season.  The kids will be a lot better come next year because of the time you put in with them.

3rd Grade:  Brian Miller, John Toney, and Joe Payne

5th Grade:  Ken Lilly, Bub Payne, and Jimmy Cook

6th Grade:  Scott Combs, Dave Cottrill, and Jeff Whittington.
