Preseason Player of the Year: Jon Schwarte, Treynor — 2020
As a sophomore with Treynor, Schwarte was a dominant inside force that helped lead the Cardinals to a state title game last season. Plenty of guys graduated from that team, but Schwarte is a returning starter who will not only see his offensive numbers balloon this season, but will remain one of the more dominant defensive forces in the state.
Jon Schwarte, Treynor — 2019
8.9 points, 3.0 blocks, 7.6 rebounds
The points and rebounds came as a starter on a Class 2A state runner-up last season, but it’s the blocks that make this this 6’8 center a true gem.
Jesup Lake, Logan-Magnolia — 2019
13.9 points, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 7.7 rebounds
He led the team in rebounds last season, and he’s the leading returning scorer from a 16-win team. The 6-foot-3 forward will certainly be a candidate to average a double-double this season.
Tate Killeen, Audubon — 2019
15.6 points, 3.8 assists, 2.1 steals, 6.9 rebounds
A classic do-it-all player, Killeen can play a multitude of positions and is a guy that simply gets it done. He’s a triple-double threat each night out.
Alex Lingle, IKM-Manning — 2019
14.1 points, 5.5 rebounds
The Woilves are always one of the top teams in the conference, and this season it will be Lingle’s team to lead. The 6-foot-2 forward is an efficient scorer who could be up around 20 points per game this season.
Jack Stogdill, Treynor — 2020
8.8 points, 4.2 assists, 1.6 steals, 4.1 rebounds
Another guy who, like Schwarte, is a returning starter for a Treynor squad that advanced to the Class 2A title game last season. Look for Stogdill to be among the best two-way players in the conference this season.
