JPII boys hoops

Members of the Guardians boys basketball team take time to communicate during a stoppage in play. John Paul II welcomes back nine lettermen this season.

The Guardians have spent the past few seasons climbing the steps within TAPPS Class 4A.

As John Paul II’s boys basketball team enters the early stages of the 2021-22 campaign, head coach Forrest Blackwell expects big things with nine players returning from a team that went 15-8 overall and captured its second consecutive district championship a year ago.
