Guyer Trio Lands on All-Region Team

Guyer Trio Lands on All-Region Team

by Steve Gamel

A trio of basketball players from Guyer, including one decorated female who will soon transition to college ball, were recently recognized by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.

Lauren Heard, a TCU signee, capped a dominating high school career in which she played all four years on varsity by being named to the Class 6A All-State team as well as the Region I All-Region team. She was joined on the all-region team by her male counterparts in sophomore sensations De’Vion Harmon and Jalen Wilson.

Despite her team not making the postseason, Heard was practically untouchable while averaging 24.5 points, nine rebounds, 3.7 assists and 4.1 steals per game – all team highs. She also shot a staggering 49.1 percent from the field and finished her high school career with 2,018 points. She was the District 6-6A MVP.

Harmon and Wilson weren’t far behind in terms of dominating play. The duo helped the Wildcats earn a share of the District 6-6A title before bowing out in the first round of the playoffs.

Harmon, who continues to garner attention from big time college programs, led Guyer with nearly 19 points per game to go with 4.8 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals.

Wilson finished the year averaging 16.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.
The Texas Association of Basketball Coaches was officially organized in 1975, and has more than 5,000 member schools (public and private). Among other duties, the TABC provides weekly rankings of all teams in each classification during the season. It also hands out a slew of postseason awards, including all-state, all-region, and academic all-state.

According to its website, the TABC awards are based on nominations by Texas high school basketball coaches and voted on by regional coordinators and committees. All awards are announced between the boys state basketball tournament at the end of the school year.
