Congrats to Knight Denver Anglin '22, named Second Team All-State for All Groups by NJ.com. The 6-foot, 2-inch guard averaged 27.9 points a game with 6.4 assists, making him "one of the most dangerous playmakers in the state every time he touched the ball," according to NJ.com.
GSB Athletic Director Will Taylor agrees unequivocally with this assessment. "Making Second Team All-State for All Groups is a big deal – it means Denver is one of the top players in the state for all schools, any size," said Mr. Taylor. "This is a huge honor, and I'm really proud of Denver. He worked his tail off to be this good. It's a hard-won recognition."
Even with a shortened season and team playing pauses due to pandemic precautions, Denver was still recognized by NJ.com as an "elite scoring threat in the state." His highlights include scoring 25 points against Don Bosco Prep, 18 in the Watching Hills game, and 33 points for the Bergen Catholic matchup.
For the NJ.com All-Skyland Conference selections, Denver made First Team, with forward Drew Kania '22, who averaged 20.3 points a game, awarded Second Team honors, and Naas Cunningham '24 earning honorable mention.
Overall, GSB's boys' basketball team ranked second in the Skyland Conference and 18th in the state, with a final 7-4 record. Next season, our Knights will surely be a formidable force, with standouts including Denver, Drew, Nass, and Mackenzie Mgbako '23.
