We still love the answer his older brother, Tristan Upchurch, gave two years ago.

Asked if he had a favorite among the many moves his sophomore kid brother, Easton, had uncorked that season, TrIstan responded: “I don’t know. There’s been some stuff.”

Easton Upchurch took the district by storm that sophomore season, coming away with player of the year honors.

He did it again this spring as a senior, so there really wasn’t much to consider in naming Upchurch our inaugural Barley’s/Blount Press Row Player of the Year for boys basketball.

The Christian Brothers signee can flat out score.

And that’s the thing.
