Posted onAuthorEdward K. QuinnComments Off on Gavin Sarvis of Burlington Central – Shaw Local
Burlington Central’s Gavin Sarvis has scored a rare double in back-to-back years as he is a member of the Northwest Herald All-Area football and basketball first team.
The Rockets eldest helped his basketball team to a 31-4 record, the best in school history, and to the Fox Valley Conference title with an 18-0 mark.
Sarvis led the Rockets with 14.5 points per game and caught 3.5 steals per game. When local coaches sent in their nominations for all regions, Sarvis topped nearly every list for an FVC coach.
The 6-foot-3 guard is the 2022 Northwest Herald Boys’ Basketball Player of the Year, selected by athletic staff with input from area coaches. Marengo’s Matthew Volkening, the 2021 Player of the Year, and Woodstock North’s Rex White, the Kishwaukee River Conference Player of the Year, were also considered.
“[Sarvis] is by far the best player on the best team, in both categories,” an FVC coach wrote. “Easy choice.”
Another FVC coach said: “[Sarvis] impacted the game more than anyone else in the region.
Sarvis, a three-year-old starter, averaged 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game and was a formidable defender with his size and speed.
Sarvis has chosen to play basketball at the next level and will attend NCAA Division III Loras College next season. He answered some questions from sportswriter Joe Stevenson about the season.
What will you remember the most from this season?
Sarvis: Permanently win the Plano Christmas Classic tournament.
Who is your funniest teammate?
Sarvis: Drew Scharnowski. He always finds a way to make us laugh.
If you could celebrate with your high school teammates after a touchdown, what would you do?
Sarvis: We were doing “Hit the Griddy” and hanging out after the game.
