(Crystal City) When it comes to boys’ high school basketball, Donovan Tullock is a prime example of the self-made superstar.
Tullock went from averaging just under 10 points per game as a junior for the Crystal City Hornets to one of the most prolific scorers in the area, and he made the Regional Radio Dream Team for that jump.
Tullock averaged over 21 points per game this season, and he says adding this honor to his growing list of awards proves the hard work paid off.
One example of Tullock getting better was in the course of just this last season.
As the Hornets started 1-7, Tullock realized he need to expand his game, particularly his shooting range.
Tullock increased his 3-point percentage to hitting over a third of his shots, Crystal City won seven of its next eight, and the Hornets went on to win the Class 2 District 4 championship.
But it’s the people, not the trophies, that Tullock is going to remember.
Tullocks was named the JCAA Small-School Division Player of the Year and earned Class 2 All-State honors.
