CVA’s O’Neal and Judd lead TVL Pioneer Division all-star basketball team


Central Valley Academy nabbed two of the top boys basketball honors for the 2021-22 season in the Tri-Valley League Pioneer Division.

Junior guard Jaylon O’Neal was selected as the Pioneer Division’s Player of the Year and Luke Judd earned the Coach of the Year honor.

CVA finished 6-0 in the division and 18-5 overall.

The TVL also has a Colonial Division, which includes Rome Free Academy. However, it is unclear if the Colonial Division will also release all-star selections. In 2020, the TVL released an overall list of all-star selections from both divisions.

O’Neal earned the most points (28) among coaches to earn the Player of the Year honors in the Pioneer Division. O’Neal averaged 17.9 points, six rebounds and six assists in 23 games for the Thunder.

In addition to the top honors, CVA had three others selections on the first and second teams. VVS had a total of four players selected to the Pioneer teams.

O’Neal’s teammates in sophomore forward Deacon Judd and senior guard-forward Adam Hall II are Pioneer first team selections. Vernon-Verona-Sherrill senior guard Bryce Palmer and senior guard-forward Ben Wittman and Camden junior Connor Dean round out the first team.

The second team includes CVA junior forward-guard Christopher Judd and VVS senior Isaac Jacobs and sophomore Eliijah Donegan. Oneida senior Hunter West and junior Gavin Stone were joined on the second team by Camden sophomore Ryan Leos.
