Clarkston’s Foster Loyer Named 2018 Mr. Basketball
Clarkston HS point guard Foster Loyer was named as the 2018 Hal Schram Mr. Basketball award winner by the Detroit Free Press on Monday afternoon.
Loyer, who will attend Michigan State next season to play for coach Tom Izzo, beat out East Lansing's Brandon Johns and Detroit East English's David DeJulius, both future Michigan Wolverines, for the honor.
The 6'0" point guard led Clarkston to the Class A title last season, the first ever for legendary coach Dan Fife. And his team is still alive this season in the Class A quarterfinals against Flint Carman-Ainsworth on Tuesday night at Grand Blanc HS.
He is the son of former Detroit Pistons interim coach and current NBA scout John Loyer. He's led his team to a 23-1 record this season.
Loyer is the second Clarkston player to ever win Mr. Basketball, Dane Fife (who ended up at Indiana, and is now an MSU assistant coach) won the honor in 1998.
Brandon Johns finished second in the voting, David DeJulius finished third.
