Graduation claims some of the best players every year. When a great player moves on, it opens the door for another to step up and show their talents. But there can be some pressure when it comes to trying to replace a lot of production.

Here are some returning players in 2A who will have big shoes to fill next year:

Jackson Biggs, sophomore, Lyndon:

One of the top 2A programs last year, Lyndon loses a couple of top talents in second team 2A honoree Miles Kitselman Miles Kitselman 6'5" | C Lyndon | 2021 State KS and honorable mention point guard Luke Detwiler Luke Detwiler 5'11" | PG Lyndon | 2021 State KS . The Tigers will have honorable mention performers Toby Miller and Darian Massey back. But the long, athletic Biggs is their most dynamic returner with the most upside. He is an explosive and versatile 6-foot-3 guard/wing who can make highlight plays.

Eric Dillinger, junior, Erie:

The Red Devils lose a couple of star seniors in third-team 3A performer Mark Bogner, and tough big Dawson Lehman. But returning is Eric Dillinger, a 6-foot-5 forward who was the team leader in points and rebounds with 15.8 and 6.8. Dillinger led the Red Devils to the state playoffs, where they narrowly fell to Lyndon.
