It’s never too early for too-early-season. With fall sports and school underway, it’s only a matter of time before the winter sports season is upon us. 

With that in mind, here’s a look at some of the top guards in the small schools in Section 4

Erick BurgessErickBurgess6'4" | SFCristo Rey | 2021StateMN, Cristo Rey Jesuit

Cristo Rey underachieved during the regular season last year but turned it on in a big way late, advancing to the section championship game before the season was canceled. A bright spot throughout all the ups and downs was Burgess. The senior swingman averaged 16 points, six rebounds, four assists, while knocking down 36 percent of his 3-pointers. He’s an active defensive presence who has the strength and toughness to guard bigger guys plus the quickness to stick with smaller guards. 

Andrew HowardAndrewHoward6'0" | PGSt. Croix Prep | 2021StateMN, St. Croix Prep

Howard was a key cog for a St. Croix Prep team that won 26 games last season, averaging 12 points while providing excellent floor-spacing. He’s an excellent 3-point shooter who will have an opportunity to take on a bigger role this year with the Lions.
