East Carteret sophomore Trevor Willis is our newest WITN Pepsi Player of the Week.
The Mariners were a buzzer-beating three pointer away from winning the 1A boys state championship last Saturday against Winston-Salem Prep. Willis tallied a game-high 24 points en route to being named the East MVP.
Saturday's game was the first state championship appearance for the Mariners who hadn't lost a game all year.
