Season highlights: Bokol played well as a junior for coach Jarris Krapcha’s Eaglecrest team, but took his game to an entirely different level as a senior as the Raptors finished with 15 wins and lost in the Sweet 16 round of the Class 5A state playoffs. With a combination of strong outside shooting (he made at least one 3-pointer in all but two games and nine games with two or more) and fearless drives to the basket, Bokol averaged 18.3 points per game, a rise of 10.7 points per contest from the previous season. He tallied a season-high 34 points to outduel Kenny Foster in two-point road win over Smoky Hill. Bokol also led the team in assists per game (2.9 apg), finished second in rebounding (6.4 rpg) and tied for second with 1.5 steals per game on his way to being voted to the All-Centennial League first team for the first time. He will play in the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
