Clarkston steamrolled its way to it’s second consecutive state championship with an 81-38 win over Holland West Ottawa. While they are loaded with talent, it is clear who turns the wheels. Foster Loyer (2018, PG, Clarkston) has cemented his place in the history of Michigan high school basketball. If there was a Mt. Rushmore for prep basketball in the state, he may have just carved his face in the stone.
Two games in the Breslin Center. 82 points. That says it all. In the state semi finals and state championship, Foster Loyer averaged 41ppg. 41 POINTS PER GAME. During the championship game Loyer passed Dane Fife and became Clarkston’s All-Time leading scorer. The Michigan State commit had 19 2nd quarter points and set a new MHSAA championship record for points scored in a quarter.
Foster Loyer can simply do it all. He’s the most efficient point guard in Michigan, but he can also score at will. Loyer can get buckets from anywhere on the court. In the state championship game he shot 14-19 from the field and 6-7 from the free throw line.
It is clear that Foster Loyer deserves the honor of being named the Class A Playoffs MVP. Scoot your chairs over Derrick Coleman and Terry Mills, we need to make room for Loyer at the table with the greatest Michigan high school players of all time.
Taylor Currie (2018, F/C, Clarkston)
The dynamic big was as dependable as can be. The Wisconsin commit was as tough as they come and led Clarkston in rebounds throughout the season and the playoffs. Currie notched a double-double in the championship game.
CJ Robinson (2018, G, Clarkston)
He’s one of the best perimeter defenders in Michigan. Robinson is tough, gritty and always looks forward to matching up with the opponents top offensive weapon. He added 18 points in the final game.
Tyler Bosma (2018, F, Holland West Ottawa)
Don’t let the lopsided loss in the championship take away from what this young man did along the way. The athlete was a double-double machine and a leader for his team.
Luke Pfromm (2018, F, Warren DeLaSalle)
After leading DeLaSalle to a football State Championship, he had the basketball squad on the brink with a semifinal loss to Clarkston. Pfromm is a terrific do-it-all type player who is was his team’s top scoring option.
Traveon Maddox Jr. (2018, G, Novi)
The Oakland University commit had a flair for the dramatic this post season. The athletic shooter had back-to-back game winning buckets against Skyline and Belleville to help his team reach the semifinals.
