First winless playoff team is a possibility

BILL MARTIN

This comes from Rockdale Coach Jeff Miller. We may finally have our first winless team in the playoffs next season.

District 10-4A, Division II has five schools— La Marque, Houston Kashmere, Houston Worthing, Houston Jones, and Houston Scarborough.

The Houston ISD will decide in March to possibly close Houston Jones, which means the remaining four schools would make the playoffs.

Houston Scarborough currently has a 47 game losing streak, so it may be possible for Scarborough to get in the playoffs in the midst of a 57 game losing streak next fall.

There have been a couple of one-win teams make the playoffs.

—BM— Former Rockdale coach, Jaime Boswell, now head coach at San Angelo Central High School, has had a great honor bestowed upon him as he will coach the North team in the Texas High School Coaches Association’s All-Star Game.

Boswell has been a head basketball coach for 17 years now and is in his fourth year at Central.


Former Rockdale Coach Jaime Boswell has been named an all-star coach. Former Rockdale Coach Jaime Boswell has been named an all-star coach. He has led his teams to the playoffs 13 times in the previous 16 years including two regional tournament appearances.

After Rockdale, Boswell had stops at Granger, Mathis, Comanche and Sinton.

He was also an assistant at Stephen F. Austin for a year.

The Central Bobcats have reached the playoffs the last two seasons with an outright district title and regional quarterfinal appearance in 2012 and the most wins in a season since 1963 (31).

Boswell was never the head basketball coach here, but he did start the girls softball program, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

In his three years as head coach, the Lady Tigers captured three straight district titles and did not drop a league game, going 36-0.

Rockdale was 54-20 overall during that span.

There is a good chance that Aubrie King of Milano could play in the THSCA game.

Speaking of King, as his stellar career winds down, he is leaving behind some pretty impressive numbers, both personally and for his school.

This year alone, King has made 275 shots, which 162 of those makes have been three-pointers, and his three-point percentage is a bit over 50%.

In his career, the 6-foot- 6 guard has totaled over 2,700 points, 1,500 rebounds, shoots 85% from the free-throw line, 42% from threes, and is nearing 1,000 assists.

According to available records, no player in Texas history has accumulated 2,700 points, 1,500 rebounds and 1,000 assists.

In King’s four years, Mumford has racked up 139 wins against just 10 losses.
