Who is the Best Section II Player Ever?

It could be Talor Battle of Bishop Maginn. Maybe it’s Rashaun Freeman or Mark Lyons of Schenectady.

It might be someone older, like Sam Perkins of Shaker, or Greg Koubek of Shenendehowa.

It could be Albany’s Lionel Chalmers, or maybe Columbia’s Craig Forth or Alex Zampier
