But the reason this honor goes to Conrey Meagher: The best overall athlete I believe this class has this year - and most would probably pronounce his name wrong on the first try. (Meagher is pronounced as "Mar" - and yes, I did when I attempted at it)
He's one not to complain, and one of the very few on this list that didn't ask me a thousand times if he was on this list. That is like him on the football field, he plays just about everywhere Coach Johnny Hill needs him at and he goes out there and does it.
He plays Running Back/Wide Receiver on offense, an area in which I think he should play a little more at Running Back but has been reported that he will play more at Wide Receiver. He had 3 Rushing Touchdowns (2nd on the team) on just 16 carries and was effective every time he touched it on offense (which was just 23 touches). He plays Cornerback/Free Safety on defense (which is his main position) and is arguably the best secondary player on the team - he was second on the team with 4 Interceptions last year (behind KT McCollins). Let's not forget he also threw for a touchdown on offense as well. All those numbers came in just 11 games played (missed 2 due to injury).
He does have colleges turning some heads, among them are all the Big 3 Mississippi schools (Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Southern Miss) but also from other colleges like Navy, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale - all where degrees are not easy to get. He does not have an offer yet however that I am aware of.
He made the MAC Coaches' 2nd-Team in 5A at Free Safety for good reason and is looking toward more colleges to turn some more heads other than the Ivy League schools and schools from Mississippi with the upcoming season.
He also runs Boys Track as a sprinter on the team (when I searched through the sites, he was listed running a 4.5 40 time), meaning he runs events like the 100m, 200m, 4x100 relay, 4x200 relay - not sure if he runs ALL those events but those are the events he would run on the team (sorry, have not been able to get around Track last year). He helped the Boys team get 2nd this past year at the 5A State Meet in Pearl. Meagher also played Baseball once upon a time early in his high school career before deciding not to return to the team to focus more on his other sports.
