Kell Schwers is the latest signee for the Dawson Buccaneers basketball team. The Sweet Grass County High School point guard was a First Team All-State selection in Class B this past year, averaging 21 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 3.1 steals per game. He led the Sheepherders to a 26-2 record and a third place finish at the state tournament where he earned all-tournament honors. They won the district championship and placed third in divisionals before qualifying for state. Schwers led the 5b conference in scoring and 3-pointers made. He will be following in the footsteps of former Big Timber guard Brent Finn who played two years for the Bucs, leading them in scoring and helping them win 24 games back in the 2017-2018 season. Schwers commented, “I chose Dawson because I believe it is the best opportunity for me to develop as a person and as a player.”
Dawson Coach Joe Peterson praised his latest signee, “Kell is a winner who has a great work ethic. He’s a good player now, but will keep getting better because he’s a gym rat who loves the game and wants to be great! I’m excited we were able to get such a high quality in-state recruit.”
Schwers will be joining a Bucs team that is returning eight key players from a 20 win team this past season; as well as two red-shirts returning and two signees.
