One of the best experiences a basketball player can have is playing in front of the home crowd and winning a close game. As a sophomore, (2020) Trever Howe from Malad High School did just that. “The most memorable experience has been playing Aberdeen my sophomore year! It was senior night and the game was intense all the way through!! It went down to the last second and we didn’t let them get a shot off and we won! It was awesome to be apart of and it helped our team gain a lot of confidence!”

Howe started playing on the varsity towards the end of his freshman year, and became a starter on varsity last year. Now going into his junior year he is a starter and one of the key players for Coach Gibbs. At 6’2” 190 lbs Howe can go inside or attack from the perimeter. He is a good passer who sees the court well. He is also a great defender who can guard anyone. Howe is a good re-bounder both on the offensive end and the defensive end. He isn’t afraid of contact and never quits.

One of the things Howe likes the most about basketball is the relationships he has developed with his teammates. “I really like to play with my teammates! I love them all to death! And Coach Gibbs is really helping us turn the program around!” Howe is hoping this good team chemistry can help them reach their goals. “The goals for our team this year is to win district then go on and win state! We’ve been through some rough patches the last few years but I think last year we really improved and have great things heading our way!” To help reach these goals Howe has been spending time with his coaches working on his shot so he can become a consistent outside threat.

When asked who he looked to pattern his game after he said, “I really try to be like Tony Parker or Chris Paul, or just really any guy that isn’t selfish!  I like to let my teammates take the shots! I loved watching Tony Parker with the Spurs and how they were so good at moving the ball around.”
