High school boys basketball: TJ Haws has created his own legacy at Lone Peak

“The way he’s going with his scoring right now he’s going to wind up in the top 10 (all time),” Lewis explained. “Then you look at what his team has done and what he’s done in big games — it would be pretty hard to say there are guys more successful than him.”

Haws has little left to accomplish in high school. He’s a three-time state champion with a career record of 84-7. He’s mastered techniques many players never attempt, which is why he contemplated reclassifying to the Class of 2013 to begin his career at BYU early. But his competitive nature compelled him to return.

“I felt like I wasn’t done here,” Haws said. “I want one more state championship. That’s all I have left, so hopefully we can get that done.”

Another championship would launch Haws into rarefied territory. As a four-year starter, he would become the first player to capture four state titles in history.

Which is precisely why resting isn’t an option.
