COLUMBUS — After the last football season was over, Danville’s Skyler Durbin was named to the Division VII All-Ohio First Team for his achievements. On Monday, he added a rare double to his All-Ohio status by earning Second Team All-Ohio in Division IV boys’ basketball.

Durbin, a 6-foot-3 senior, averaged 21.4 points per game during the regular season, tops in the Mount Vernon News area, but also led area players in assists (3.9 apg). He was third in field-goal percentage (160-280, 57.1%), and was fifth in free-throw percentage (133-167, 79.6%) while making 29 more free-throw attempts of any other player. He also was second in rebounding (7.7 rpg), and averaged 1.5 steals per game.

Durbin was previously named to the Knox-Morrow Athletic Conference First Team, and was the Division IV Central District Player of the Year.

Hayden Hankinson, a 6-3 sophomore from Centerburg, was chosen as a Division IV Honorable Mention. A Second Team All-District honoree, he was the Trojans’ leading scorer at 12.4 points per game.

The Division III and IV boys basketball All-Ohio teams were selected by members of the Ohio Prep Sportswriters Association.
