Hobby, an NC State signee, averaged 18.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.2 blocks and 2.0 steals per game in leading Nease to a 30-2 record and a state runner-up finish.
Hobby, who was earlier named the Class 7A Player of the Year, received seven of the 19 first-place votes and 122 points to finish ahead of Class 4A Player of The Year and Vanderbilt signee Koi Love of Miami Country Day (107) and Class 9A Player of the Year Fujika Nimmo of Haines City (80).
“It’s definitely a really good feeling to win," Hobby said. “My teammates and I, my parents, we all kind of won it together.”
