This 5-11 Joseph led Orange to a 16-6 overall record and the OCC-Capital Division championship in its first season. He averaged 18.4 points and was named district Player of the Year in Division II and first-team all-league.

"He's probably the shiftiest player I've ever coached," coach John Betz said. "He has a knack of getting open and creating shots. He's a gamer. He wants the ball when the game's on the line."

Joseph, who played for Worthington Christian as it reached the Division IV state final last season, also helped a young and inexperienced Pioneers team with his leadership skills.

"He was our floor general," Betz said. "He brought all of the intangibles that you need that helped us get to where we were."
