Two high-school basketball standouts in Crawford County received some statewide recognition recently by being named to a pair of all-state teams.
Robinson senior Aaron Siler and Oblong senior Anthony Johnson each received all-state accolades from a pair of organizations.
For Siler, he capped his stellar four-year career with a First Team selection from the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association and a Honorable Mention nomination by the Associated Press.
During his senior season, Siler averaged 19.2 points, 2.8 assists, 2.6 rebounds and one steal per game in 30 games, all of them starts. He led the Maroons in points, assists and free throw percentage, was fourth in rebounds and fifth in steals, while helping RHS to its second straight regional championship and a 25-5 record.
He finished his varsity career with 1,709 points, which places him third on the all-time list at RHS. He was part of three regional championship teams during his four seasons and owns a state championship ring, as he was a freshman on the 2010 state title team.
Johnson, meanwhile, earned a slot on the IBCA 1A/2A Fourth Team, while also earning Honorable Mention status from the AP.
In his senior campaign, Johnson averaged 24.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.6 steals per game in 30 games, all of them starts. He led the team points, rebounds, assists, free throw percentage and three-point percentage and was second in steals, despite missing three games with a hip injury, as the Panthers finished with a 21-12 record.
For his career, Johnson ended with 1,990 career points and would have went over the 2,000-point plateau had he not missed time due to injury this past season. He also led his team to back-to-back regional championships the last two seasons, as well as consecutive sectional championship game appearances.
He is the all-time scoring leader at OHS, while holding the school record for points in a season with his 740 this year, while also holding the single-game scoring record with 51, which came Dec. 21, 2012 against Martinsville.
