Ravenna High School senior Jermaine Justice was named Honorable Mention All-Ohio in Division II on Monday.

Justice played at Ravenna for three seasons. After playing with the Ravens his freshman season, he transferred to St. Vincent-St. Mary for his sophomore year, before returning to Ravenna to complete his prep career.

During the 2012-13 season, the 6-foot-6 Justice averaged 18.4 points and 8.7 rebounds per game to lead the Ravens in both categories.

"He was very athletic and made everyone around him better when he played within the game plan. He had some big games for us and had the ability to carry us every night," Ravenna head coach Phil Starks recently told the Record-Courier.

Joining Justice on the Honorable Mention list in Division II was Norton's Tyler Sherman and Springfield's Victor Dorsey.

Sherman, who is 6-7 senior forward, was named the Portage Trail Conference Metro Division Player of the Year, helping guide the Panthers to the Metro Division title.

Sherman averaged a double-double this season, scoring at 13 points per game and grabbing 11 rebounds per contest. He finished his prep career as Norton's all-time leading rebounder with over 700, while also rejecting more than 200 shots.

"What has really improved Tyler's game is the fact he has become such a great team player," Norton head coach Russ Swartz recently told the Record-Courier. "It was not just about Tyler scoring points, he became a better defender and better rebounder."

Dorsey, a 6-8 junior forward for the Spartans, was the leading scorer among all Metro Division players at 19.2 per game. He also averaged 9.2 rebounds per game.

The Division III and Division IV All-Ohio teams will be announced on Tuesday and will be included in the Wednesday edition of the Record-Courier.
