Notre Dame's Garvin, Agan earn All-State honors
Last winter Notre Dame had one of their best boys' basketball seasons in school history and the New York Sports Writers Association took notice.
Garvin was named to the Second Team, Class C All-State team while Agan earned Fourth Team honors.
"It puts a nice little exclamation point on our season," Crusader coach Bill Hopkins said. "It's something the guys are really proud of. I'm really pleased with what we accomplished."
Last year Garvis was named to the Third Team.
"He's the most talented player I've ever coached and that includes college," said Hopkins. "He has a very high ceiling, just limitless talent. I think he has a really, really bright future."
And it's not just high school fans and writers who know what Garvin can do.
"College coaches have already called me about him," Hopkins remarked. "He's had a huge impact on our success this past season. Next year we'll try to shoot for the stars."
As for his senior, Hopkins has a special place in his heart for him.
"I'm very happy for Tommy," he said. "Of all he went through with his injury, then surgery and rehab. I'm really proud of him."
Garvin and Agan led Notre Dame to the IAC title this past season and their second Section IV title in the last three years. They ultimately fell in the Regional game.
"It was a disappointing ending," said Hopkins. "But there is so much to remember and so much to reflect upon."
