Allen Singleton, Clear Springs
Clear Springs’ Allen Singleton exploded during his senior season, averaging over 20 points and five rebounds per game. He was named the District MVP and led the Chargers to the district’s fourth-place position. Singleton was a four-year starter and is a tremendous student in the classroom.
Rezia Castillo, Clear Brook

Castillo averaged 12 points, six rebounds and five assists last year as the Wolverines reached the second round of the postseason. The future is bright at Clear Brook for years to come.
Orlando Horton, Jr., Clear Falls
The Clear Falls Knights had a big season under the direction of coach Bryan Shelton. The Knights finished second in district play and went three games deep in the postseason.

Horton will be back in 2023 along with Corey Kelly, making Clear Falls a power next year.
Vernon Glover, Dickinson
Vernon Glover of Dickinson can play some serious defense, regardless of the sport. Glover was the District Defensive MVP and helped lead the Gators to the third round of the postseason. Glover is also a big-time defensive back who has been offered by the likes of Texas A&M and Texas. He will be the big man on campus at Dickinson in 2022-23.
Samora Watson, Clear Falls
Samora Watson left her best for last. The Clear Falls senior was one of the area’s top guards, leading the Knights to a second-place finish in District 24-6A. She was named the District Offensive MVP and left her legacy at the south Houston school.
