Washington State Nabs Class 3A State Co-Player of the Year

After losing three players who chose to transfer, Washington State began to replenish its roster signing Lakes High star Andre Winston Jr. (far left) to a Financial Aid Agreement.
The 6-foot-1 point guard from Lakewood will play for the Cougars next season, likely backing up Reggie Moore, who garnered all-Pac-10 freshman honors.
Winston signed a letter of intent with James Madison and could not sign another one, which is why he’s on financial aid.
He averaged 20.8 points and 3.6 assists and was named the Associated Press Washington State 3A Co-Player of the Year, along with Riley Carel of Enumclaw.
Winston helped the Lancers to a third-place finish at the 3A State Championships, earning the tournament’s MVP award. He set tournament records with 119 points and 45 field goals made in four games.
ESPN described Winston as “one of the better sleepers in all the Pacific Northwest. He is a combo-guard with a growing point guard mentality. His frame is decent for the next level and should fill out well enough to compete at the level. He has the athleticism to get by his opponents.”
“Andre is an outstanding young man of high character coming from a successful Lakes High School program,” Wazzu coach Ken Bone said in a release from the school. “He is a quick point guard with the ability to score baskets, but at the same time can see the floor and is unselfish. Andre will be a great addition to our backcourt next year.”
In addition to Winston, the Cougars have signed Washington’s 2A player of the year Patrick Simon, a 6-8 forward, and junior college transfer Faisel Aden, a 6-4 guard from San Diego.
