Trinity's Stafford emerging as elite PG

Trinity’s Michael Stafford is emerging as one of the top point guards in the state. The junior-to-be saw limited action this past season but he is expected to see quality minutes in the 2013-2014 season. This spring and summer, he will be playing for The Ville 16U. I caught up with Stafford and spoke with him about his game.

The 6-foot-0 Stafford is a terrific passer. His AAU team is filled with great shooters and scorers and he does a great job finding the open man.

“I like to have more assists then points,” Stafford said. “I usually look for my shot second. I would rather get my teammates involved.”

Stafford only averaged 2.8 points per game as a sophomore but that averaged is expected to go up this upcoming season. The Shamrocks lose guards Darryl Hicks, James Quick and Miles Rice, so Stafford expects to fill in their spots.

“Coach (Mike) Szabo told me that he expects me to be in the starting lineup,” Stafford said. “He wants me to score more, so my role is going to change some going from AAU to school ball. I’m just hoping we can have another good season like last year. We lose some good players, so I’m going to have to step up.”

Stafford told me he hasn’t received a lot of interest from colleges yet but if he continues to work on his game that should change in the near future.
