Caleb Furst named 2020-21 MaxPreps Indiana High School Basketball Player of the Year
Each year since 2006, MaxPreps has recognized outstanding performers in high school basketball. America's source for high school sports continues the tradition to close out the 2020-21 season by naming the top player in each state. Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades.

Caleb Furst of Blackhawk Christian (Fort Wayne) is the 2020-21 MaxPreps Indiana High School Basketball Player of the Year. The 6-foot-10, 210-pound senior helped the Braves go 28-3 en route to their second straight Class 2A state championship.

Furst averaged 21.5 points, 14.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.1 blocks per contest, finishing his four-year run as the program's all-time leading scorer with 2,087 career points.

In Blackhawk Christian's 55-40 state title game victory over Parke Heritage, Furst overcame early foul trouble to score 18 of his game-high 20 points in the second half to go along with seven rebounds and six blocks.

Signed with Purdue, Furst is regarded as the No. 54 prospect in the Class of 2021 by 247Sports. He held additional college offers from Iowa, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Stanford and Virginia among others.

Each state's MaxPreps Player of the Year will be considered for inclusion in the MaxPreps All-America Team, which is scheduled to be released April 13.

California high school football: St. John Bosco's Matayo Uiagalalei leads MaxPreps All-State Team
California recently finished up one of the most unique high school football seasons after moving from the fall to the spring. There were no playoffs or state championships while most schools played anywhere from four-to-six games in a shortened season. A lot of top-recruits skipped their senior year to enroll in college early or focus on the next level.

However, there was still a lot to play for as most kids were just happy to get back on the field and have the opportunity to play the game they love.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL RANKINGS: Final Top 25 California rankings

Mater Dei (Santa Ana) finished the spring season as the state's No. 1 team and is well represented on the California MaxPreps All-State Team. The 11 Monarchs selections are led by 2021 USC signee Raesjon Davis, five-star USC commit Domani Jackson and 2022 Oklahoma commit Raleek Brown.

After a 5-0 spring and a host of returners, Mater Dei has a good chance to be No. 1 when we release our 2021 preseason MaxPreps Top 25 rankings later this summer.

The state's No. 2 team, St. John Bosco (Bellflower), was also well-represented with eight All-State picks, led by Class of 2023 standout Matayo Uiagalelei and four-star offensive lineman Earnest Greene III.

Twenty-four different schools had at least one player selected with 14 having multiple selections. In total, 28 seniors, 22 juniors, seven sophomores and one freshman fill out the 59 player list selected on the California all-state team.

High school basketball: With COVID-19 guidelines limiting indoor activity, games in Washington's Pierce County being played in livestock arena - OFFICIAL
High school basketball: With COVID-19 guidelines limiting indoor activity, games in Washington's Pierce County being played in livestock arena
With local guidelines restricting indoor activity amid the pandemic, athletic directors, coaches and local businesses got creative to save the high school basketball season in Washington's Pierce County.

Games finally got underway Wednesday on the grounds of the Washington State Fair in Puyallup in a venue typically reserved for equestrian activities, livestock shows, auctions and swap meets.

The arena has a roof but opens on both ends, allowing the basketball games to be played and skirting the limit on indoor gatherings. Puyallup-based Looker Asphalt paved the arena floor in recent days in order to make it possible to lay down courts.
Curtis (University Place) athletic director Suzanne Vick told KJR 950 on Wednesday that nearly 400 games are scheduled to be played on three courts featuring boys and girls teams from the South Puget Sound League and Pierce County League.

Spectators aren't permitted this week but Vick said she hopes two guests per uniformed player will be allowed in the near future.

Thankfully, the area's unpredictable spring weather is doing its part to cooperate. Temperatures are expected to remain in the 70s through the weekend.
Two junior varsity girls games were the first to be played on the newly installed courts Wednesday afternoon.

Texas high school football: Defending 6A champ Austin Westlake releases 2021 schedule - OFFICIAL
Texas high school football: Defending 6A champ Austin Westlake releases 2021 schedule
With the 2021 high school football season less than 100 days away, schools are beginning to release their schedules. Westlake (Austin, Texas), the defending 6A Division 1 state champs, are the latest to do so. Excitement is builds for the Chaps after a 14-0 season in which they grabbed their second straight state title.

They took out the two-time reigning 6A D1 state champs, North Shore (Houston), in the semifinals with a 24-21 win. Clemson-bound quarterback Cade Klubnik scored the game-winning touchdown on fourth down with just under two minutes remaining from 1-yard out.

The following week, Westlake beat Quinn Ewers and Southlake Carroll (Southlake) 52-34 to claim the state title in Texas' largest classification. That win propelled the Chaps to a spot at No. 3 in the final MaxPreps Top 25 high school football rankings and the top-ranked team from the Lone Star State.

Klubnik was named to the MaxPreps Junior All-America first team and four-star wide receiver Jaden Greathouse was a first-team selection on the MaxPreps Sophomore All-America squad. Legendary head coach Todd Dodge was named the 2020 Football Coach of the Year.

Dodge led Westlake to a 15-1 record in 2019, beating Guyer (Denton) 24-0 in the 6A Division 2 state championship and the Chaparrals begin the 2021 season riding a 24-game winning streak.

This upcoming season will be Dodge's eighth year as head coach for the Chaps and he has gone 88-11 during his tenure and expect the two-time state champs to be ranked in the Top 5 when we release our preseason MaxPreps Top 25 rankings on June 23.

After the two largest classifications in Texas (5A, 6A) pushed back the high school football season last year because of the pandemic, football returns to its normal fall start as most Texas schools in the middle spring practice gearing up for the 2021 season.

Earlier this week the Chaps announced their schedule with the first game Aug. 27 against Temple.

The marquee matchups include a Sept. 3 showdown with Ollie Gordon and Trinity (Euless), which went 11-2 last season and made it to the 6A Division 1 quarterfinals. The following week Westlake takes on Mansfield Summit (Arlington) as the Jaguars are coming off a 5A Division 1 semifinal appearance.

After a bye week, the Chaps face their first district foe — Del Valle, which made a huge offseason splash bringing in former IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) head coach Bobby Acosta. He led the Ascenders to an 8-0 season in his only year in Bradenton and they went wire-to-wire as the No. 1 team in the country.

The biggest game is at the end of the regular season against rival Lake Travis (Austin). The two didn't play last year as the Cavaliers had to cancel their final two regular-season games because of a positive coronavirus test in the program. Lake Travis is the last team to beat Westlake when Hudson Card led the Cavaliers to a 26-25 win on Oct. 11, 2019.

High school baseball: Jesuit, IMG Academy, Buford among Florida, Georgia squads dominating OFFICIAL Top 25 - OFFICIAL
High school baseball: Jesuit, IMG Academy, Buford among Florida, Georgia squads dominating MaxPreps Top 25
The first national high school baseball rankings of the season find Florida and Georgia dominating the MaxPreps Top 25 as the Sunshine State logs seven teams, including three of the top four while the Peach State is next with five.

With a pair of season-opening wins Jesuit (Tampa, Fla.) holds on to the top spot while IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) started 3-0. The two teams are expected to meet April 20.

The Top 25 rankings only include teams that expect to begin play in the next month. As a result, several teams not expected to begin play until April have been dropped despite holding a spot in the preseason Top 25 rankings.

Dropped out: No. 3 JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.); No. 6 Baylor (Chattanooga, Tenn.); No. 10 Thousand Oaks (Calif.); No. 11 Parkview (Lilburn, Ga.); No. 14 Valley Christian (San Jose, Calif.); No. 18 American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.); Ronald Reagan (Pfafftown, N.C.).

Game of the Week: Buford 3, Parkview 0. In a game between Georgia's best, Buford pulled out the win over Parkview behind the pitching of MaxPreps Underclass All-American Dylan Lesko, who had nine strikeouts.

Player of the Week: Jackson Ferris, IMG Academy. Ferris tossed a five-inning no-hitter with 12 strikeouts against Palmetto.

Recruit Watch: Brady House, Winder-Barrow. Considered one of the top 10 players in the nation, House opened his senior year with five RBI in his first three games to boost Winder-Barrow into the rankings.

Game to Watch: IMG Academy vs. Southlake Carroll. The Florida-based school is scheduled to head to Texas this week to take on the Dragons, who have won two Class 6A state championships over the past three years.

Streaks: Webster (Wisc.), led by former MLB pitcher Jarrod Washburn, did not get to play a single game last year, but it has the nation's longest active win streak at 37 games dating back to the 2018 season. Webster is not scheduled to begin play until April 18.
