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 6

Grant Beukens, West Central Area

West Central Area won 27 games last season and while the Knights are graduating three of its top four players, Beuckens will be back at the point guard spot. The 5-foot-11 senior averaged about 14 points per game a year ago. He’s dynamic off the dribble and deadly from the mid-range and in. And he brings a toughness to the defensive end of the floor. 

Payton Keezer, Mahnomen/Waubun

Keezer stuffed the stat sheet for Mahnomen/Waubun last season, averaging about 18 points and 10 rebounds while adding in about three assists, three steals and two blocks. He’s a capable shooter but he’s at his best when he’s getting downhill to the rim and his activity level off the ball allows him to produce with or without the ball.
