Stillman's Petty Says Its "A Blessing" To Be Player Of The Year

The Men's Basketball Team of Stillman College has been on a roll this season. They can now add No. 1 Seed to their resumè.

Right now, the Men's Basketball Team of Stillman College has a record of 16-3 so far this season. It was recently announced that the Tigers are the No.1 seed in the NAIA MEn's Basketball Opening round. Stillman Athletics announced via Twitter earlier this week.

 

Ahead of the tournament, it seems that the Stillman team is getting a string of good news. Senior Gaurd Ladarius Carter was voted Second-Team All-Conference. The Tigers also had Junior Guard Devin Merriweather, and Senior Guard Trey Petty voted First-Team All-Conference. Trey Petty was also named SSAC Player of The Year!

 

I spoke with Trey about his success this season and I was blown away by his humbleness. Not only was he quick to give credit to his teammates and celebrate their accomplishments, but he thanked those who continue to encourage and root for him.

"Thank everybody that's been staying on top of me and just giving me motivational speeches. I love listening to wise people. I thank everybody that supported me, loved me and cared on me."

I know it has to be a surreal feeling to get all of these accolades and awards. It's great to see that he's really grounded and is still hungry to work.

Congrats to Trey Petty and the whole Stillman College Men's Basketball team for their accomplishments. Check out the full conversation with Trey Petty below.
