2016-17 #PBCHOOPS Private Schools Player of the Year and Co-MVP - KJ Fitzgerald
2016-17 #PBCHOOPS Private Schools Player of the Year is Cardinal Newman High School's KJ Fitzgerald.
KJ has also been selected as 2016-17 #PBCHOOPS Private Schools Co-MVP.
Fitzgerald, a #PBCHOOPS 2016-17 Preseason Fantastic 5 and a four year starter for the Crusaders, was asked to take on a different role each year as the composition of his team changed during his time at Newman. This year he was asked to do it all and he came up big averaging over 25 points and 8 assist per game for a team that relied heavily on several under classmen to play big minutes on the way to the 5A Regional semi-finals. Still undecided for his college pick, Fitzgerald still has several schools in the mix before making a final decision.
