Sollazzo holds court at basketball awards banquet

TAMPA — Armwood point guard Adam Sollazzo stole the show Wednesday night at the 23rd annual Tampa Bay Basketball Coaches Association Awards banquet. Sollazzo, who averaged 22 points, 6.0 rebounds and 6.5 assists, was the Paul Straub Player of the Year and was honored as a TBBCA and academic all-star.

"I'm really excited," said Sollazzo, who has a 4.6 weighted GPA. "When I was little, I always thought about being the player of the year. I worked hard my whole life."

Other awards included the Doug Walker Coach of the Year Award, which went to Plant City's Wardell Chambers, and the Heart of a Champion Award, given to Middleton's Walter Weller, who played after recovering from a life-threatening injury. To see all the winners, visit
