He has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball on scholarship at Augustana University this fall.

Ridder is the second Gatorade Missouri Boys Basketball Player of the Year to be chosen from Kickapoo High School after Spencer Laurie in 2003.

Cartwright averaged 21 points per game this season and helped the Knights win their first Class AA championship since 2012.

The senior will play basketball at Xavier next year.

The national Gatorade Boys' Basketball Player of the Year award will be awarded later this month.

A First Team All-State selection and the Kanawha Valley Defensive Player of the Year as a junior, he is a three-time All-Conference honoree. "Carter can really score, but there are also so many other things he does that make his teammates better", said Aaron Hill, head coach at Hazen High.

Ridder is a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes and has volunteered locally on behalf of an area homeless shelter and as a youth basketball coach. Swain has maintained a B-plus average in the classroom and represents one of the state's top academic candidates in meeting the Gatorade award's broad criteria.

Gatorade announced Monday morning that Hollingsworth has been named Gatorade Kentucky Boys Basketball Player of the Year.

As a Gatorade Player of the Year, Ridder will be able to select a national or local youth sports organization to receive a grant as part of the Gatorade Play It Forward program.

Other recent Illinois Gatorade Boys Basketball Players of the Year include Charlie Moore (Morgan Park), two-time victor Jalen Brunson (Stevenson), Jabari Parker (Simeon) and Derrick Rose (Simeon). Twelve spotlight grants - one for each sport - will be announced throughout the year.
