MCHS' Daniels, Walker earn honorable mention Class 4A All-State status

Morgan City High School had two players earn honorable mention Class 4A All-State boys basketball honors from the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
Seniors Taaj Daniels and Tywaun Walker earned the honors.
“Both of these guys sacrificed a lot for us to be able to have the success that we had this year,” Morgan City Coach Terence McCutcheon said. “We had 4 guys average double figures in points. So it is obvious that these guys bought in to an unselfish style of play. I commend them for seeing the big picture and trusting in me. I will miss coaching these young men.”
Daniels finished the season with per-game averages of 13.1 points, five rebounds and 1.3 steals.
“Taaj has the confidence of a champion,” McCutcheon said. “He was focused from the beginning of the season on doing his part to help us have a memorable season. Taaj can really shoot the ball, and he is not afraid of the moment. He made huge shots in big games for us.”
Walker had per-game averages of 13.4 points, three rebounds, four assists and 2.5 steals.
“Tywaun was huge for us all year long,” McCutcheon said. “He is a guy that has experienced some individual success during his years at Morgan City. He has a knack for making plays in clutch situations. In a number of the big games that we won this season, Tywaun made timely plays in a number of ways.”
Jonathan Cisse of Division II state champion St. Thomas More was the Class 4A Outstanding Player, while Chris Kovatch of Class 4A state champion Carencro is the Coach of the Year.
Other representatives of District 7-4A, in which Morgan City competes, who made the team were: Assumption’s Josh Ratcliff and Dongell Washington and Ellender’s Marquie Mosely and Kobe Hartman.
