One of the most fun aspects of club ball is the opportunity for small school players to compete against their peers from big city programs.

Ellinwood sophomore Britton Dutton Britton Dutton 6'1" | SG Ellinwood | 2023 State KS , who plays up with 2022s, and state playoff star Brayden Meseke Brayden Meseke 6'0" | CG Wabaunsee | 2022 State KS (pictured) from Wabaunsee have developed respected resumes.

But for others, spring tournaments is the chance to show what they’ve got: Here are a few small school guards with a big opportunity (listed in alphabetical order):

Joel Ford, 5-foot-11 guard, Western Kansas Elite, Phillipsburg HS:

Ford is a guy who does the right things with the ball. He plays under control as the point guard, directing traffic and distributing opportunities. He has a nice combination of skills and toughness. Ford has a solid stroke from deep, and knocks down free throws.

Servando Gonzalez Servando Gonzalez 5'10" | CG Lakin | 2022 State KS , 5-foot-10 guard, Western Kansas Elite, Lakin HS:

A high-intensity guard, Gonzalez is athletic and ready to battle. He pushes the tempo in the open court and attacks the rim in transition. His toughness leads to a lot of defensive rebounds that he pushes hard up the floor. He’s a threat from deep and draws lots of fouls.
