SCHERTZ – District play has started off well for the boys basketball team at John Paul II in Schertz.

The Guardians are led by senior point guard Dezmon Dudley, who was named First-Team All-District as a junior and was named district MVP for the second straight season. Dudley is hoping the season ends with a state championship just like his father Stacy accomplishment when he attended East Central High School in 1995.

JPII will play Veritas Academy in Austin Friday then host two homes games against San Marcos Academy and Holy Cross next week.
