2019 4A Sports in Kansas Boys Player of the Year
DaQuan Johnson, Parsons
The 5-11 Johnson and coach Anthony Houk have helped Parsons with a big turnaround the last two years. Last year, Parsons started three sophomores and two juniors, went 17-8 and took fourth in 4A-II, the first state victory since 1996. Johnson delivered 15 points, 10 rebounds and three assists a game. Johnson had one of the most complete stat lines in Kansas on one of the most balanced teams in Kansas.He averaged 14 points per game, 8 rebounds per game, five assists and three steals per contest. He is arguably one of the best defenders in all classifications of Kansas for basketball as well as he was the most complete all-around player in 4A this season. Johnson is one of the best multiple sport athletes in the class of 2020 with a 10.85 FAT 100 meter time (10.7 HH), first team all-state all-classes in football as he helped lead the Vikings to their first playoff win in 42 years this fall, and now his second year in a row as an all-state basketball player.
Parsons went 17-6 and lost to K.C. Piper, 55-52, in the first round of the Class 4A state tournament. Piper went on to win the state championship. Johnson helped Parsons finish in second place in the SEK League and was a first team all-conference selection. Parsons juniors Dariq Williams is also one of the top players in 4A but missed eight games this season due to a football injury. Zeke Lyons earned second team all-conference picks, and senior Davonte Yates was honorable mention. Parsons has a shot for three 1,000 point scorers in the same season next year with Johnson, Lyons and Williams.
