REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio -- The Central Ohio Fall league powered by Nova Village and 270 Hoops continued action this past weekend on Saturday. There was a lot of very competitive players to watch, and lots of young players that stood out. Let’s take a closer look at the top performers from the two middle school divisions for Week 2.
Trindon Flenoury (PG / Ontario / 2028): Trindon Flenoury was by far the most well-developed player to watch this past weekend. He showed great control with the ball, primarily running the offense for his team and displayed some offensive playmaking abilities that are mature for kids his age. Flenoury has the upside to be a great prospect in the class of 2028.
Brody Maynard (G / Vinton County / 2028): Brody Maynard is an elite scorer. Coupled with his court vision, he was very efficient offensively off the dribble and was tough to guard for many defenders. Maynard has a great feel for the game and is very fun to watch.
Garrett Hannah (F / Granville / 2028): Garrett Hanna also had a nice showing this weekend. Playing alongside with Boothe, he played his role very well. Hanna showed a lot of skill in being able make difficult shots in the post and stretch out to shoot the ball. He ran the floor very well and was solid on the offensive boards.
Evan Allgood (G / Grace Christian / 2028): Evan Allgood had an impressive shooting performance. He made a lot of shots from all over the floor notably showing some range in his shooting. He plays with a lot of confidence and has a strong built to be a solid defender.
Brooks Norman (PG / Grace Christian / 2028): Brooks Norman was one of the best on ball defenders this weekend. He showed some quickness cutting through passing lanes and stayed in front players all game long. He plays with a lot of heart and is player any coach would love to have on their team.
Jorden Bowens (WF / Hannah Ashton / 2026): Jordan Bowens has a ton of upside. He is undoubtedly the most dominant player in the league. His athletic ability was in full display with a series of highlight dunks and blocks. Plays very well with the ball in his hands and is unstoppable when attacking the rim. Bowens is a player to watch in the upcoming years.

The way he navigates the court is extremely impressive, and it is very evident that he works on his game and he plays with a great attitude on the court. His basketball IQ, court vision and ability to lead a team was exciting to watch.
Jack Schuler (F / Our Lady of Peace / 2027): Jack Schuler, cousin of Columbus DeSales standout Atticus Schuler was solid. He has a high motor and always seems to be in the right place at the right time. He’s the kind of player that you don’t pay attention to but when you do, he’s already given you problems offensively. Expect for Schuler to be a guy to watch in the CCL in the years ahead.
Tayvon Wright (PG / Gahanna South / 2026): Tayvon Wright is tough. He was great in transition and made a ton of defensive plays that resulted in baskets for his team. Tayvon was all over the court and wasn’t afraid to take contact when attacking the rim.
Isaiah Darfus (F / Thomas Ewing / 2026): Isaiah Darfus is a lengthy stretch forward that can do a lot on the court. He was most impressive when finishing around the rim and in getting second chance points.
Other notable performers: Tyson Perkins (PG / Heritage / 2026), Davyn Amankwa ( F / Saint Matthias / 2026), Aaven & Ayden Synder ( G / Pickerington / 2026), Khani Thomas (F / All Saints / 2026), Christian King ( G / Berwick / 2026)
