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 from the big schools in Section 1

Jake Braaten, Byron

Braaten was one of the best players in the area as a junior, averaging better than 17 points and four assists for a solid Byron team and backed that up with a terrific grassroots season over the summer. He’s a big, physical guard who can score from all three levels plus make plays for his teammates. And he’s a smart and hard-nosed defender.

Bigelow flies under the radar a little bit but he’s one of the best players in Hiawatha Valley League and Section 1AAA. He’s a long, athletic guard who can shoot it from the 3-point line, get to the rim and defend multiple perimeter positions. He averaged nearly 18 points per game as a junior and will be in position to put up massive numbers again this winter.
