One of Kansas City’s premier lockdown corners on the football field, Blue Springs 2020 guard Stefan Black has taken the toughness and lockdown skills he showed on the gridiron to the football field this winter.

At 5’11, Black is a fast, swifty pass-first point guard who can score the ball when his team needs him to put it in the basket.

Although he didn’t play AAU basketball, Black spent much of the offseason focused on improving his outside shot and bounce.

Blue Springs took it on the chin in its season opener against Lee’s Summit West, but the Wildcats showed a lot of promise as several players are working their way into the varsity line-up for the first time.

“We have a young squad that need experience and once they get that the sky’s the limit,” Black said.

Black says his parents have had the biggest influence on his game to date.

“My biggest influence is my parents just seeing them work hard everyday makes me wanna work hard,” he says.

A fan of Kyrie Irving, Black says he has been able to take various elements from the Celtics guard and make them his own,

“I enjoy watching Kyrie Irving I like how he can score and get other teammates involved and that’s what I try to put into my game,” Black says.

Black has drawn interest from a host of college football. While he does not yet hold any offers, he has heard from Kansas, Kentucky, Iowa state, South Dakota State, Missouri State, Kansas State, and Northwestern.
