2005 High School Player Of The Year Watch


June 6, 2005

Upton
Justin Upton

JUSTIN UPTON ss • Great Bridge HS, Chesapeake, Va.

It was the summer of 2002 and Upton was a skinny, 14-year-old rising sophomore, and everyone knew. Scouts, fans, coaches, parents. It was obvious Upton was bound for stardom as he stood out at the Area Code Games in Long Beach despite being two years younger than almost every player at the event. Upton entered his final playoff series as a senior still considered the top amateur player in the country and prepared to embark on another chapter in his promising career. "This year we've kept him focused on his senior year and his legacy as a high school player," Upton's coach Wiley Lee said a week before the draft. "And once June seventh comes around, he can concentrate on his legacy as a professional."
