The sequel exceeds the original: Jake Hall headlines the All-Sophomore team
Unlike the movie series from which Carlsbad sophomore Jake Hall derives his nickname, the "Problem Child" sequel on the court exceeded the original version.
In Year 2, Hall increased his statistical output in every major category, including averaging 26.4 points per game, five points higher than his record-setting freshman year.
Hall dazzled with his scoring exploits, including one of the most impressive individual performances in recent SD history, when he scored a career-high 50 points in a win against then-No. 2 ranked San Ysidro.
For this, Hall is a clear choice for the Full-Time Hoops Sophomore of the Year. Here is the rest of the All-Sophomore Team.
