For the Piedmont Wildcats basketball team, the 2013-14 season was one to remember.

And it seems coaches in the Suburban Conference have taken notice to it as well.

Earlier this week the announcement was made for the Suburban Conference All-Conference team, with Piedmont landing multiple players on the list.

Adrion Williams and Cameron Peters were both named to the First team all-Conference, with Williams also being named to the All-Conference All-Defensive Team.

Grant Smith and Kendell Franklin were both named to the honorable mention list for all-conference honors.

“It’s such an honor to receive an award like this,” Franklin said. “When I look back at everything I accomplished with this team, I’m very grateful. We had such a strong bond between us and I’ll always remember playing basketball with this group of guys.”

Williams finished the season averaging 17.4 points per game this season, including seven games with 20 points or more during the season.

Peters also turned in an impressive season as he finished averaging 15.1 points per game, including five games with 20 points or more.

Franklin averaged just over nine points per game this season, with his highest output coming against Carl Albert on Senior Night when he scored 27 points.

Smith finished the season averaging 10.9 points per game with seven games in double digit scoring.

“This is a great honor, I’m happy I’ve gotten to achieve this in my life while playing for Piedmont High,” Smith said. “I’m sad that this has come to an end though. Coach (Ryan) Wagner was a great mentor to us not only for basketball but for life lessons and how to become a man.”
