SALYERSVILLE - Magoffin County guard Isaiah Salyer was among the leaders for the Hornets throughout his junior season.

Now, Salyer has turned his focus to a highly-anticipated senior campaign. 

Salyer, one of the most underrated boys' high school basketball players in Eastern Kentucky, ranked as the Hornets' second-leading scorer in the 2019-20 season. The productive Salyer averaged 14.7 points per game for Magoffin County as a junior. Salyer scored 441 points in 30 games during the 2019-20 season. 

The Magoffin County junior shot 46.2 percent from the field. Faring well beyond the arc, Salyer shot 38.2 percent from 3-point range. 

Thriving in another key category, Salyer led the Hornets in free throw shooting. Salyer shot a team-high 77.9 percent (109-of-140) from the free throw line.
Among the leaders for Magoffin County, Salyer enjoyed a breakout season during his junior campaign. As a sophomore in the 2018-19 season, Salyer averaged eight points per game for the Hornets. 

Magoffin County, under the direction of head coach Scott Castle and his coaching staff, concluded the 2019-20 boys' high school basketball season 15-15.

The Hornets' latest campaign ended with a loss to host Martin County in the 57th District Boys' Basketball Tournament Semifinals on the Cardinals' home floor.
