Jackson guard Jason Todd has been named the Gatorade Washington boys basketball player of the year. Todd, a 6-foot-5 junior receiving Division I interest, led his team in scoring (21.5 points per game), rebounding (10.8) and was also Jackson's best defender.

He was one of the state's most versatile players this year, capable of scoring inside or outside. His coach, Steve Johnson, once described Todd, who is often listed as a combo guard/forward on rosters, as simply a basketball player because he can do it all — pass, score, rebound and defend.

Todd, a Star Times all-area selection and all-state selection, thus becomes a finalist for national Gatorade player of the year.

Other recent Gatorade Washington Boys Basketball Players of the Year are: Union's Jordan Chatman, Kentridge's Gary Bell Jr., Chelan's Joe Harris, Franklin's Peyton Siva and Bellarmine Prep's Abdul Gaddy.
