Name: Jason Capco
School: Belle Vernon
Sport: Boys Basketball
Background: Belle Vernon won't make the playoffs this season, but could still finish with a winning record. A big reason for that has been the play of Capco, a 6-foot-3 senior guard who is averaging a team-best 20.6 points per game. That's more than any other South area player.
Capco had a great two-game stretch in mid-January. He scored 29 points in an overtime win against Ringgold and followed that up with a career-high 36 in a loss to Class AAAA Section 4 leader Thomas Jefferson. As a junior, Capco averaged 15.8 points per game.
