St. Thomas, the TAPPS 5A State Champions are looking to defend their title with the responsibility falling on “The Big 3”. They are Stanford signee, 6’4 guard Christian Sanders, 6’9 senior post Jeremy King whose is still undecided and 6’ senior guard Chase Brogna, a sharpshooter with lots of ball skills. Brogna is still looking for that perfect fit for his skills and quality grades. On any given night any one of these can score 20 plus but it’s the team concept of “We” that has made St. Thomas so successful. “We don’t care who gets the credit because were just about winning and doing it the right way” said head coach Danny Evans.
Stanford Commit Christian Sanders
St. Thomas has a very tough schedule again this year with mostly tough 5A competition including marquee events at South Padre Island December 3rd and 4th and the big national event Torrey Pines Holiday Classic in San Diego (CA) December 27th thru 30th. This is a great event particularly for Brogna and King who can display their talents to the many colleges that will be viewing the event.. King is also looking for the right fit for his game and like Brogna would prefer an excellent academic school.
2012 G Chase Brogna Is A Sharpshooter
St. Thomas is off to a 4-0 start while winning the Charlie Thomas Classic and defeating HCYA which feature Donrad “Chicken” Knowles (6’10 Houston signee) and 2013 W 6’6″ Justin Jackson who’s a top national prospect. Brogna had 26 points in one game, King dominated the championship game of the Thomas Classic over Knowles with 17 points (including 2 monster dunks) and 17 rebounds and 3 blocks, while Sanders led the way with 35 in another early season game. St. Thomas is a team to look out for with the two high level guards and the big man inside. They’ll be defending home court and looking to sweep the two games they play in the D1 Nation Thanksgiving Jamboree on November 25-26th
