""The Jet" flying in high company/Is Jhamar NEC Rookie of the Year?

From the NEC web site

From me - does Jhamar Youngblood make first team All-NEC rookie? Definitely.
Is he Rooke of the Year? - Maybe.


Rookie Watch (from the NEC)

The future of the NEC lies in its freshman class with a number of first year collegiate players taking on integral roles for their respective teams. Monmouth freshman guard Jhamar Youngblood (Newark, NJ/St. Patrick’s) is the current Choice Hotels/NEC Rookie of the Week and leads all NEC freshman in field goal percentage (.550; fourth overall) and steals (1.8 spg; third overall), and ranks second in points (11.7 ppg). Below is a quick look at some of the NEC’s top freshman performers, five of whom will likely earn spots on the league’s all-Rookie team at season’s end:

Jhamar Youngblood (MU): Youngblood leads all NEC freshman in field goal percentage (.550; fourth overall) and steals (1.8 spg; fourth overall), and ranks second in points (11.7 ppg). Youngblood is 14-24 (.583) from beyond the arc in league games to rank first in the conference in three-point accuracy...

Tony,
This is close but i'll give Jet the edge.Pa has got blown out of a lot of games,which means garbage time and stat.pumping.Jet,I think has a shot at 2nd team All NEC and a lock for 3rd team,if there is one.
