Avery Jackson was the kind of player coaches dream about. An extremely hard worker who has skills, composure and leadership ability. With Jackson leading the way, Ocean City ripped off a 14-game winning streak in the middle of last season, then took the state playoffs by storm, winning four straight games, including another sectional championship, before finally falling in the state Group 3 semifinals.
She led the Red Raiders in scoring with nearly 300 points while adding 39 threes, 77 rebounds and 29 steals. The past two years, with Jackson leading the way, Ocean City was 41-16. She finished her career with nearly 800 points, including 100 three-pointers, and there was only one game during her entire career that she was held scoreless.
