Saying he enjoyed the bond he shared on and off the court with teammates, Dalton High School junior post Emier Bowman was willing to do whatever was asked of him this season, and that team-first mentality helped the Catamounts turn what might have been simply a rebuilding year into a season of success. Bowman averaged 15 points, 10 rebounds, three blocks, three steals and three assists per game in 2013-14, but one of his biggest contributions came when he keyed Dalton’s pressure defense. For his achievements, he has been chosen The Daily Citizen’s All-Area Boys Basketball Player of the Year. (Misty Watson/The Daily Citizen)
