'Driven,' 'serious' Savannah May stars on, off court for Katy High
Originally Appeared on VYPE
Katy High coach Shanna Marhofer talks about Savannah May with praise that most would elicit only upon the most respected and admired individuals.
"Driven." "Outworks everybody." "There's always a purpose." "When she talks, people listen." "She is not going to expect anyone else to do anything that she wouldn't do herself."
"Everything she does," Marhofer said, "she takes seriously, because it's important to her."
May is Marhofer's senior guard, a versatile, dynamic basketball talent who has every intangible that coaches desire.
"As a freshman, I knew she took everything she did seriously, and I knew she was driven and would push herself," Marhofer said. "I could see her doing great things for our program. She's a very serious young lady. Those types of traits aren't normal in freshmen."
May is a three-year varsity player and two-year captain; the latter particularly significant since it's voted upon by players, not coaches. At 5-foot-6, May is averaging 12.9 points, seven rebounds, 4.4 steals and 3.5 assists per game for the 14-3 Tigers, strong frontrunners for the District 19-6A championship this season.
