Jonathan Pixley has mixed feelings about some postseason honors, but certainly not those awarded to his top player, Carlos Stewart.

“It is an honor and a privilege to coach the MVP of the state,” Pixley said. “He is more than as advertised. Carlos willed us to back-to-back state championships and he is more than deserving.”

The latest honor for the 6-foot-1 Stewart is a statewide one. The Dunham School’s Stewart headlines the Louisiana Sports Writer’s Association’s Class 2A all-state basketball team selected by a panel of sportswriters from across the state.

The  Santa Clara signee was voted the Outstanding Player on the 2A squad after leading the Tigers to a second straight Division III select title with averages of 32.1 points a game, 5.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 3.8 steals. Stewart also made 44.5 percent of 3-pointers, 55.4 percent overall and 85.7 percent of his free throws...

...Dunham’s Pixley garnered the Coach of the Year honors. Dunham (18-11) made its fifth straight title game and has won three titles in five years....

...“There are coaches who do a lot with a whole lot less talent,” Pixley said. “They just don’t happen to play for a state championship, so they are not always considered for awards like this.

"With that said, this (award) is something I am certainly honored to receive. Good players and teams make coaches look good.”
