Tuscola senior Jalen Quinn, left, is stopped in the hallway by classmate Caden Baer on Tuesday at Tuscola High School. Quinn — The News-Gazette’s boys’ basketball Player of the Year — is a perfect fit for the small community of Tuscola. ‘In Tuscola, he’s just Jalen Quinn,’ fellow Tuscola senior James Parsley says. ‘We know him.’
