UNC football signee Darien Rankin also a basketball star


According to the players and coaches assembled for the 2011 All-County basketball photo shoot Wednesday at Catawba, Salisbury’s Darien Rankin could have easily scored over 20 points a game this season. If he had wanted to. But that’s just it. Rankin, the repeat winner as Rowan County Player of the Year, wanted to win more than he sought individual stats. “You could ask Darien if he’d rather score 50 points and have a close game or not score and win the game,” said Salisbury coach Justin Morgan. “He’ll say he’d rather win.” (Salisbury Post)
