Windham's Knight, Pozsgai, along with Mogadore's Van Camp earn All-Ohio honors

Record-Courier Staff Report Published:

Three Portage Trail Conference boys basketball standouts were recognized on Tuesday for their solid seasons in 2012-13.

Leading the group is Windham senior Matt Knight, who was named Second Team All-Ohio in Division IV.

Knight was named to the All-Ohio Third Team last season. He topped the 1,000-point mark last season as a junior and despite missing the beginning part of the 2012-13 campaign because of an ankle injury, he still topped 400 points in 24 games this season.

For the year, Knight, 5-foot-10, averaged 16.8 points per game. It was not always about scoring for Knight, though, as he also averaged four assists and three steals per game.

Knight's teammate and fellow senior, Pozsgai, was honored on Tuesday by being named to the Division IV All-Ohio Honorable Mention team.

Pozsgai, a 6-2 forward, averaged 15 points per game, while also pulling down more than nine rebounds and distributing more than four assists per game for the Bombers. He was also one of the more prolific 3-point shooters in the PTC this season, shooting at a 37 percent rate.

The third player recognized at the Division IV level on Tuesday was Mogadore's Hunter Van Camp, who was named to the All-Ohio Special Mention team.

Van Camp was the catalyst behind a program turnaround that lifted the Wildcats from the bottom of the County Division all the way to the top as title contenders. Mogadore's only two league losses came to Windham, which was undefeated in league play.

Mogadore's 6-2 senior forward was the team's leading scorer at 15.6 points per game.

"Hunter really made the step up from last year to this year," Mogadore head coach Russ Swartz recently told the Record-Courier. "Everything about his game improved, from his outside shooting to the ability to take the ball to the hoop."
