FREEPORT — If David Felix has his way, Case Woodard’s name will hang in the rafters of Freeport’s gym one day.

After coaching Woodard for four years, Felix, Freeport’s coach, said his star point guard deserves that much for shouldering the onus of being Freeport’s best and only true offensive weapon on the basketball court for 3 1/2 seasons, an accomplishment recognized at the state level. The Florida Association of Basketball Coaches named Woodard to its 1A All-State First Team this past April.

“You don’t run up on many of those at our school,” Felix said.

The recognition from the state made Woodard the clear favorite for the Daily News Small Schools Boys Basketball Player of the Year Award.

The numbers helped, too.
