My pick for football would be Greg Justus from Hurley - State record for most points in one game, 56 points.

As I remember, Alex Clevinger was another great basketball player from Hurley, but as far as basketball in my opinion, Mark Robinson from Whitewood, none can compare!

I think the Panthers basketball teams have proven themselves as a team. They are the best in the whole county, and better than most in the state. They have proven this for the past several years, boys and girls team. They get my vote as the best athletes.

Yes. I agree that the panthers are a great team, and Josh Smith is probable the best to come from Twin Valley since it's consolidation from Garden and Whitewood and probable one of the best from the county throughout the ages, but still looking at the stats Mark Robinson is the best to come out of all of Southwest Virginia. Regarding other sports in the county, as far as baseball, I remember a kid from Grundy that was a fantastic baseball player, but I can recall his name. Tennis of course would be Robert Hurt from Garden. And as far as wrestling, I've heard several names from Grundy throughout the years, but never heard who exactly was the best. Who do you think?

Albert is a great athlete and one of my former students. How about Red Childress or Jim Horne?? They were great Grundy athletes. I do agree Robert Hurt was a greattennis player for Garden ( I graduated with him!)What about the Keen boys for Garden- Lewis, James and Walter??? Great athletes all around. BTW I am kind bias with them :) Steve Vandyke he was a hottie and a great football player. OMG there are so many at Garden too many to name!

Brandon Wimmer was the only athlete in the county that I know of to be on the US Team and so I nominate him. If you don't remember he was in the paper a lot for karate tournaments across the country.
