CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — The awards keep rolling in for the Crater Comets' star forward Nate Bittle. The 6-foot-11 junior was named the Maxpreps Oregon State Player of the Year.

Bittle's junior season was cut short, ending before any of the 5A State Tournament semifinals could even begin after the OSAA canceled the tournament due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Comets were set to play Silverton in that game.

One of the highest regarded boys basketball players in the class of 2021, Bittle had another stand-out season. He finished the year averaging a double-double. In 26 games, Bittle averaged over 25 points and 11 rebounds a game. He also recorded 2.5 assists and 4.5 blocks a game.

And when the competition got tough, Bittle got tougher. Against Top 8, 5A opponents and Top4, 6A opponents, Bittle averaged 28.5 points, 12.7 rebounds and 5 blocks a game.

Next season, the Comets will return all but three players, two of which were starters (Jayden Vranes and Krueger Edwards).
