January has proven to be an extraordinary month for Athens Christian senior Zach Lillie, and it's not over yet.
In the first three weeks of 2012, the 6-foot-8 Lillie signed a letter of intent to play basketball at South Carolina Upstate, a member of Division I's Atlantic Sun Conference, broke the state record for blocked shots in a season and was named the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association's Class A Player of the Year.
"I thank God for blessing me, my school, my coaches and my teammates because I wouldn't be able to do any of this without them," Lillie said. "It's comforting, but the record doesn't really matter to me. When I was a freshman, we were 28-3 and made the final four and it's rolled on since then."
