Brighton’s Ashton Tomassi named Livingston County’s top basketball player

When someone achieves Livingston County Player of the Year status, they almost always enter a season with a fair amount of hype.

But when the Livingston Daily did its 2021-22 preseason boys basketball preview, junior Ashton Tomassi’s name was nowhere to be found on any lists. He wasn’t among the top players listed for Brighton and he certainly wasn’t among the county’s top five.

The omission was understandable, considering he hadn’t played a minute of varsity basketball.

He was a good junior varsity player as a sophomore, but the county’s Player of the Year always ends up being someone who established himself on the varsity the previous season. Nobody cares about your JV credentials when you start playing with the big boys.
