Also a football standout, Dekkers is currently getting ready to quarterback his Falcons into the Class 1A playoffs on the gridiron. He’s thrown for 2,441 yards and 34 touchdowns this season, yeesh. On the hardwood, he’s as effective, and spent his junior seasons terrorizing opponents. This season — once he’s done on the football field — he’ll be a terror once again while leading West Sioux hoops.
Hunter Dekkers, West Sioux — 2019
19.0 points, 4.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 4.6 rebounds
A sharpshooter who can dish it and D up, Dekkers is a guy that will do it all for the Falcons this summer. He’s also one of the state’s best quarterbacks, and one of its best all-around athletes.
Nick Jacobs, Akron-Westfield — 2019
20.5 points, 3.3 assists, 1.4 steals. 3.2 rebounds
No returning player in the state of Iowa made more 3s last season than than Jacobs, that includes all classes; only one guy, AJ Green, now a UNI Panther, made more. Expect Jacobs to fill it up again this season.
Spencer Schorg, St. Mary’s — 2020
12.8 points, 3.2 assists, 1.3 steals, 3.1 rebounds
His numbers are a little less than others on this first team, but his experience is not. He was instrumental last season in helping St. Mary’s advance to the Class 1A semifinal, where they narrowly loss to Grand View Christian.
Bubba Shon, Harris-Lake Park — 2021
15.0 points, 3.5 assists, 2.3 steals
Shon pieced together one of the finest freshman seasons in the state last season, that’s a big reason why he’s ranked among the top-30 players in the first-ever 2021 prospect rankings.
Shane Kooima, Trinity Christian — 2019
12.9 points, 4.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 6.7 rebounds
Kooima led the six-win Tigers last season in scoring, assists and steals and he’s the team’s returning leading rebounder. Four of the team’s six leading scorers return, and Kooima will certainly lead the charge.
John Galm, Clay-Central Everly — 2019
Kade Lynott, West Sioux — 2020
Ivan Abonce, H-M-S — 2019
Jackson Louscher, South O-Brien — 2020
Auston Van Donge, Unity Christian — 2020
Honorable Mention: Chase Koopsmans, Baxter Walsh, Aaron Hartman, Jacob Nemmers, Caden Kneip, Cade Schiphoff, Brendan Gengler, Traiton Cleveringa.
