LHS’ Pollard selected for all-star game

LANETT — Lanett High School senior Anquaevious Pollard has been selected to participate in the 28th annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Basketball Game set for March 16 in Clinton, Miss.

Pollard will join 11 other high school seniors in representing Alabama at the prestigious event. Other notable selections include Sacred Heart guard Diante Wood, who has signed with the University of Alabama, Paul W. Bryant center Dylan Robertson, who has signed with Wingate University, and Mountain Brook guard Sean Elmore, who has signed with the University of North Alabama.

Pollard, a 6-foot-7 forward, averaged 18 points and 14 rebounds per game in helping lead Lanett to a third consecutive Class 2A state title.

This is not Pollard’s first all-star basketball game selection. In the past week, he was chosen to play in the Georgia-Alabama All-Star Game, also slated for March 16.

Pollard is no stranger to representing his state. He participated in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Football Game in December and has since signed with Independence Community College in Kansas to play football.

Pollard recorded 34 catches for 958 yards and 11 touchdowns this past fall.
