Five basketball players from Katy ISD were honored on all greater Houston all-star teams as chosen by the Houston Area Basketball Coaches Association. A pair each made the first and second teams in addition to a third-team nod.
Earning first-team distinction were two of the top offensive producers in District 19-6A. Morton Ranch’s LJ Cryer collected his second consecutive district MVP honor after averaging 38.9 points per game in his final season. Cryer will represent the Mavericks at Baylor University next year after finishing his high school career with the fifth-highest point total in Texas high school basketball history.
Mayde Creek’s Rommell Williams also represented Katy ISD on the first team after being named District 19-6A’s offensive MVP with a point-per-game average of 22.8. In the second half of the district slate, the Midwestern State signee poured in 28.1 points per game to help the Rams clinch a second consecutive playoff berth following a 1-5 start.
A pair of Cinco Ranch teammates closed their careers by earning a spot on the second team all greater Houston in Jayden Collymore and Derek Dickenscheidt. The former junior high rivals turned three-year lettermen and senior captains for the Cougars also garnered all-district distinction with Collymore making the first-team all-district and Dickenscheidt earning a second-team roster spot.
Another member of the first-team all-District 19-6A made the third team all greater Houston in Tompkins’ Hank Sanders. Also a three-year letterman, Sanders guided the Falcons to the regional quarterfinals although they could not get passed the Bellaire Cardinals who fell just short of the state championships which were never completed.
