Aledo’s Johnson earns MVP nod on all-county roster



Aledo’s Taylor Johnson was not only the most prolific of Parker County scorers during the 2012-13 prep basketball season, but made his presence felt at the non-scoring end of the court, as well. The 6’4” junior guard, also named to the Region I notables squad by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches, snagged eight rebounds per game while averaging two and a half steals per contest.

There is already a queue of Division I schools interested in the junior, but he will have another season of contributions to the Bearcats’ program yet to make.

Four of the seven prep boys’ basketball teams from the county headed in to postseason play, with another a hair’s breadth away from a berth. As usual, and with few exceptions, Parker County schools are well-recognized in their respective districts and the 2012-13 pool of talent is no different.

A formidable number of superlative selectees can cause a veritable traffic jam, but that just heightens the calibre of talent found on the first and second squads, while creating an overall honors lists most coaches would love to have on their rosters.

From District 9-2A, Peaster’s Ty Ballard and Brock senior Tre’ Ewell performed with consistency as the mainstays of their respective teams’ scoring ability and were named the top offensive players. 

Heading up a very salty First Team, the Poolville tandem of senior Tanner Dobbs and junior Alex Rodriguez, who were Co-MVPs from District 11-1A, Div. I, were statistical bookends, averaging 18 and 17 points, respectively. Both were active rebounders and defensive assets for head coach Steven Stegall, who has led the Monarchs to postseason brackets every year since taking the reigns.

With Brock taking its 2012-13 campaign another step closer to the brass ring, Jeff Bell and his staff get kudos for spurring the always-talented Eagles to the very edge of the state’s top rung.  Brock leads the head count, with six players named to the APC squad.
