Tatum senior guard Robbie Rockwell was recently named the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches Class 2A Player of the Year, according to Eagles head coach Brett Carr.

Rockwell, one of the most prolific 3-point shooters in the history of Texas high school basketball, averaged 18 points per game and knocked down 134 3's in leading his team to the 2A state championship game in Austin earlier this month.

In addition to earning top overall honors in 2A, Rockwell was named all-state and all-region by the TABC, was an all-UIL state tournament team selection and has been chosen to play in three all-star games in the coming months -- the TABC, THSCA and Maypearl Roundup.

Rockwell also earned District 17-2A Offensive MVP honors after leading Tatum to an undefeated run through the district.
