Khalid El-Amin, Minneapolis North, 5-foot-10 guard (1995-97)
Versatile, creative point guard led Polars to three consecutive titles; none better at dictating tempo and rising to the occasion.
Jake Sullivan, Tartan, 6-foot-1 guard (1998-2000)
Second Minnesota boy to top 3,000 career points; extraordinary range, and don’t foul him — still holds state record for career free-throw percentage (89.8).
Randy Breuer, Lake City, 7-foot-1 center (1978-79)
Tournament’s first 7-footer was matchup nightmare; tournament-record 113 points in three games in ’79 still stands.
Cody Schilling, Ellsworth, 6-foot-5 guard/forward (2006-08)
Think he can only score (3,428 career points)? He also holds state record with 1,135 career assists. Only player to lead tournament in scoring three years in a row.
Mark Olberding, Melrose, 6-foot-7 1/2 forward (1971-74)
Rebounding beast with a feathery touch inside; averaged 28 points, 15 rebounds to lead Dutchmen to ’74 Class 1A title and playoff victory over Bemidji in the Class A vs. AA game that used to be played.
