Jahmir Taylor and Chelsea Woods were named Thursday as the winners of the Phoenix Award, given annually to the top senior boys' and girls' Public League basketball player.
Taylor was a key player in Martin Luther King's run to the Public League boys' title. The 6-foot-8 senior forward averaged 13 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks per game this season.
Woods was Southeastern Pa.'s leading girls' scorer as she averaged 32.6 points per game. The 5-foot-11 guard is headed to St. Joseph's University.
The award is given by the Phoenix Club, which was established in 2008 by Michael G. Horsey. The presentation will be in June at the Union League.
