Let us get it started! Here are the finalists for Public School Girls Basketball Player of the Year.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR NOMINEE -- Elyssa Coleman, Atascocita
The Texas-signee patrolled the middle of the paint for Atascocita the past several seasons. Coleman is a generational type player for the Eagles.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR NOMINEE -- Kyndall Hunter, Cypress Creek
The Lady Cougars went 41-1 and were led by Kyndall Hunter. The junior is among the country's top women's basketball prospects, being ranked No. 32 for the Class of 2021 by ESPN.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR NOMINEE -- Kamryn Jones, Magnolia West
The University of Houston-signee ruled the roost at Magnolia West. Jones is super athletic and could get to the rim when ever she needed.

When it comes to offensive linemen, Houston has had its fair share of solid prospects.
Out of Atascocita High School, the most recent big-time offensive lineman was Kenyon Green, who ended up being the Touchdown Club of Houston Offensive Player of the Year and Under Armour All-American his senior year. The next guy repping the Atascocita Eagle on his chest that could be as big as Green is Kam Dewberry.
Dewberry is a four-star prospect for the Class of 2022 and has 25 offers, including ones from power programs, including Alabama, LSU, Ohio State, Texas and USC.
VYPE Managing Editor Joshua Koch recently caught up with Dewberry as they looked at his film, while talking recruiting and more.
