East Hall senior J.C. Hampton always seems to find a way to play at an elevated level away from home.
On Saturday, he scored 40 points in a first-round Class AA playoff win against Dade County in Trenton.
According to Vikings (22-7) coach Joe Dix, that made Hampton the first in school history to score 40 in a road game.
"He was so focused," Dix said of Hampton's effort. "Once he gets going, he gets that look in his eye."
For his efforts, Hampton is The Times Athlete of the Week.
With East Hall's first-round win, Hampton and the Vikings will be back on the road in the second round against Manchester on Wednesday, a rematch of last year's second-round game for these two schools.
That's perfectly fine with East Hall's leading scorer.
"I feel like our team is very confident," Hampton said. "Ever since we went to Alaska (in January), we've played much better as a team."
Playing in front of what Hampton says was a packed gymnasium at Dade County, he got started early with a 3-pointer and scored five of East Hall's first seven points.
He said the pace of the game that the Vikings played helped create open baskets, including about half of his points on midrange jumpers.
Dix said that Hampton had a great rhythm shooting with 15 of his points coming in the second quarter as the team took a 42-31 lead into halftime, which was particularly helpful in front of a packed house.
"Once J.C. gets going, he's hard to guard," Dix said.
"And the way he was playing, it also opened up Hayden (Chapman) for some good looks on shots (16 points)."
Hampton finished the game making five 3-pointers, and was a perfect 9 for 9 from the free-throw line.
According to Dix, Hampton's 40 on the road to open the playoffs didn't come as any huge surprise; Hampton's biggest games have been on the road all season.
Prior to Saturday, his highest output was 39 points against Gainesville, along with 37 at both St. Francis and Whitefield Academy, which will face one another in the second round of Class A's playoffs on Wednesday.
In Region 8-AA play, Hampton went for 34 earlier this season against Rabun County in Tiger.
"I've always been a fan of playing in the big games," Hampton said. "We're playing great as a team on the road."
Even though carrying a No. 3 seed in the playoffs makes things more difficult with road games, it's something East Hall hasn't managed to conquer before.
In 2006, the Vikings were a No. 3 seed in the postseason, but still advanced all the way to play in the state semifinals in Macon.
That's something that Hampton and the Vikings, making their third straight trip to the second round of the playoffs, would love to experience.
"We really want that opportunity to play in Macon since we haven't been there," Hampton said. "We know we're going to have to play our best to get there."
