Bryan County sophomore Olonna Rawls has been named All-State by the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association.

Rawls is a two-time All-Region 2-AA pick and has already amassed 875 career points in two years on varsity.

“Olonna has been coming to our summer camps since she was in elementary school,” said Redskins Coach Mario Mincey. “She loves the extra work sessions that we provide after practice or during our off-season program.”

Rawls averaged 20.2 points, seven rebounds and 4.3 steals per game this season, leading Bryan County to a 22-7 overall record an another appearance in the state tournament.

“Olonna would rather get her team involved and only score when necessary,” Mincey said. “That’s what makes her so special to me!”

Mincey said Rawls had to increase her scoring this year due to some injuries to teammates, including a career-high 33 points against Fitzgerald in the state tournament.

“A few college coaches have already been in contact about her,” he said. “Just watching her develop from freshman year until now really makes our coaching staff excited moving forward.”
