Trent Schiller, a senior at St. Michael the Archangel High School, is playing in the LHSAA Boys East All-Star Game.
He follows Jacob Evans, of the Class of 2015, as the second St. Michael student to play for the All-Star East team. Evans is a shooting guard for the Cincinnati Bearcats and an NBA draft prospect, a news release said.
The Louisiana High School Coaches Association selected Trent as one of 15 high school seniors from across the state for the team’s roster. Team members were chosen from a pool of nominations and selected for skill and stats.
Drew Hart, boys basketball coach at St. Michael, said Trent was a front-runner for the nomination. “Trent has an unbelievable IQ for the game,” he said, “mixed with his toughness, competitiveness and skilled shooting abilities, he has become one of the top point guards in the area.”
Trent said his All-Star selection was a result of hard work and credited his coaches and his brother, Tyler, for bringing out the best in his game.
“I learned a lot through each grade which has helped me play with all kinds of people and different talents,” he said.
The game will be played Saturday at Bossier Parish Community College Gymnasium in Shreveport. For more information, visit lhsaa.org/sports/all-star/basketball.
