Jacob Floyd wasn’t necessarily the most flashy of offensive players last season for the Maroons, but there’s no denying that he hit one of the biggest shots in recent Pulaski County history last season.

Let’s go back in time.

The Maroons, taking on Rockcastle County in the finals of the Boy’s 47th District Tournament, were trailing the Rockets by two points, with just 7 seconds left on the clock.

Floyd took the inbounds pass, drove upcourt, and with ice water in his veins, drained a three-pointer at the buzzer, to give Pulaski County its first district title in 13 seasons.

“Jacob Floyd is a great defender and has a lot of game experience,” stated Maroon head coach Mark Flynn.

Indeed, the experience of hitting the game-winning shot to give your team a district championship is a pretty solid item to put on the old resume.

Floyd isn’t a big time scorer by no means, but he’s a great ball handler, he plays solid defense, and he’s another weapon at Flynn’s disposal, because Floyd has proven he’s not shy about taking the game-winning shot.

And, the good thing for Maroon fans, he’s proven he can hit that shot with the game on the line.
