Grand View sophomore Treyton Parrish has worked to become one of Washington’s bright young prospects.
The 5-foot-9 shooting guard enjoyed a good year with the Greyhounds, and has become a viable young leader for the team.
“This year my role was to be a spot-up shooter and knock down shots. I like to keep the energy up, even when things aren’t going our way,” said Parrish. “I like to keep my teammates involved and help the energy going, whether I’m in the game or on the bench.”
Parrish started every game this season as a sophomore, and says he’s happy with the way he played, but there’s room for improvement.
“Looking back at this year, there’s a lot of things that I felt I could have done better. I feel like my shot-selection could have been better,” said Parrish. “Overall, for it being my sophomore season, I felt like it was pretty good season individually.”
This offseason would be his 16U season, he’s played with Sagebrush Hoops for several years in the past, and says he hopes the program reunites for another run this spring and summer.
“We want to get that back up and going, and hopefully I’ll be playing with them. And then, obviously, I’ll be playing with my high school team this summer, too,” said Parrish.
“I’ll definitely be in the gym working.”
And for his junior season, he’s already got some goals in place.
“I actually just talked my coach about that, and he says the goal will be for me to shoot 35 percent from beyond the arc, and make at least three to four 3s per game,” said Parrish. “And to average at least 15 points per game.”
