Hoops - Zach Peacock Mention

A nice blurb on hoops incoming recruit Zach Peacock:

VIKINGS' VICTORY: A year after Miami High was the county's basketball capitol, the scene shifted to Norland where the Vikings' girls -- led by UM-bound Eboni Sadler -- finished as the state runner-up and the boys' -- led by Zachery Peacock, Dade's 6A-4A Male Athlete of the Year -- won it all.

Peacock, a Georgia Tech signee, proved he was Dade's best basketball player went it counted most. With Norland and district rival Krop in the midst of a season-long battle, Peacock swung the momentum in the regional finals -- and the teams' fifth meeting. Then at state, the 6-8 forward put the defensive-minded Vikings on his back and upset top-ranked Winter Park in the state final en route to MVP honors.
