ATHLETE OF THE WEEK — Memorial High School’s Maurion Edwards
Published 12:34 am Saturday, December 31, 2022
Senior Maurion Edwards is a point/shooting guard for the Memorial High School basketball team. He’s been a member of the varsity team all through high school, moving up for playoffs during his freshman year.
Edwards said he comes from a long line of basketball players and picked up the sport growing up.
“I’m more of a playmaker,” he said. “I don’t really care about scoring; I like playing defense. I like doing the dirty work.”
During the 29th annual James Gamble Classic, Edwards created many steals and assists in Thursday’s game against Aldine Eisenhower, in which the Titans won 68-39.
“That comes hand-in-hand with getting my team involved,” he said.
