Not every guy gets to attempt 20 shots a game. Not everyone runs the point. But there are a whole lot of jobs that must be done for a team to succeed. Team-first guys do the dirty work that it takes to win. And often they miss out on the spotlight.

Here are a few small school guards who do some of that dirty work (in alphabetical order):

Jaxson Brandl Jaxson Brandl 6'1" | CG Greeley County | 2023 State KS , 6-foot guard, 2023, Greeley County:

Brandl is not overlooked by any means. His all-around production earned him first-team 1A Div. 2 last year. But the small-school guard’s overall stat line is still a little bit surprising. Brandl averaged 10.6 rebounds and 3.5 steals, which helped to produce a lot of his 19.5 points per game. For just a 6-foot guy, he defended with 2.0 blocks a game.

Keagan Dimler, 6-foot-2 guard, 2022, Hanover:

Dimler plays on a really deep and talented team, so he doesn’t get a lot of headlines. But he sure fills a lot of holes and provides a lot of glue for the state champion Wildcats. He dished out 5.3 assists and pulled down 4.2 rebounds. He also contributed an impressive 3.8 steals.
