Congratulations to Carlos Stewart ’21 who was selected as the Outstanding Player winner for the 2020 Class 2A All-State Boys Basketball team, selected by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
Stewart (6-0) took on the role of the lead scorer and facilitator for Dunham, which featured just one senior. He averaged 28.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 4.1 steals per game while making 56.1 percent of his field goal attempts, including 44.2 percent from 3-point range. The sting of a title-game loss in 2019 fueled Stewart’s drive to succeed.
“I knew I had become a point guard and be the leader,” Stewart said. “There were so many people telling us there was no way we could be as good as the team last year and that team did not win it (LHSAA title). More than anything else, we wanted to prove them wrong.”
Stewart’s Tiger teammate, lone senior Salle Wilson, received Honorable Mention.
