Keith Brumbaugh Named 2005 Florida Dairy Farmers Mr. Basketball
Posted, 4/07/2005 11:12:52 AM

GAINESVILLE, FL: April 7) --- Deland High School's Keith Brumbaugh has been named the 2005 Florida Dairy Farmers Mr. Basketball and will be honored Friday during a ceremony at his high school in Deland.

Brumbaugh, a senior forward, averaged 30.3 points, 12.0 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 3.6 steals and 1.5 blocks per game. In his career he set school scoring records for most points in a season and most points in a career with 2,299. Brumbaugh also has been named Volusia County's Player-of-the-Year four times.

The winner of the 22nd annual Mr. Basketball Award, sponsored by Florida Dairy Farmers, Inc. and the Florida Athletic Coaches Association, was determined in voting by a statewide panel of high school basketball coaches and prep media representatives.

"We raise our milk glasses to Keith for a job well done this season," said Bob Butler, an Okeechobee dairy farmer and president of Dairy Farmers, Inc. "Keith is a great example of what we're looking for in a winner of this award. We're confident that Keith will represent this honor and the Florida Dairy Farmers in a positive manner and we wish him continued success in the future."

Brumbaugh, who was earlier chosen as the Class 6A Player-of the-Year, finished ahead of Class 4A Player-of-the-Year Derwin Kitchen of Jacksonville Raines, as well as winners in the four other state classifications. Brumbaugh received nine of the 28 first-place votes and totalled 157 points with Kitchen receiving five first-place votes and 149 points.

Walter Hodge of Florida Air Academy, the Class 3A Player-of-the-Year, finished third with 146 points followed by Alonzo Gee (Class 5A) with 143 points, Denis Clemente of Calusa Prep (Class 1A) with 78 points, and Josuč Soto of Arlington Country Day (Class 2A) with 73 points.

The Florida Dairy Farmers Sports Awards program exemplifies Dairy Farmers Inc.'s commitment to the state's youth. While honoring the state's top athletes and coaches in all 24 FHSAA-sanctioned sports, the program also emphasizes to young people the importance of keeping dairy products a primary part of their diet in their overall nutrition plan.
