BHS alum Brooks is MACJC Player of the Week

Copiah-Lincoln sophomore guard Damarius Brooks was recently named MACJC Player of the Week for his stellar play against Mississippi Delta and Southern Arkansas University Tech.

Brooks poured in a career-high 36 points against Mississippi Delta after he went 12-of-17 from the floor and 8-of-9 from beyond the arc. Brooks also brought down six rebounds in that game. The sophomore from Brookhaven backed that performance up with a 20-point game against Southern Arkansas University Tech where he was 7-of-10 from the floor. He also finished the week going 100 percent, 8-of-8 from the free throw stripe.

“I just put it in God’s hands and played great with my teammates,” said Brooks. “The award is truly a blessing and I thank God for it.”
