Season highlights: Coach Shawn Palmer’s Rangeview team finally was able to break the program’s 34-year state championship drought when it went on a thrilling ride to this season’s Class 5A state crown. The rapid development of Jewett was an essential ingredient to that process for the Raiders, as a player who saw only a sparse amount of varsitiy action over the previous three seasons served as a central figure. Jewett led Rangeview with a scoring average of 15.6 points per game, which came with very few dedicated plays called for him, but his teammates found him in good position under the basket on occasion and his penchant for hitting the offensive glass also helped him get into double figures 23 times in 28 games with a high game of 33 points against Arvada West. With a significant wingspan and great instincts, Jewett collected the most total rebounds of any player in Aurora and 5A as a whole (335, including 22 in the 5A semifinals against Mountain Vista), while his average of 12.0 per game put him in a tie with Overland’s Graham Ike for a second among Aurora players behind Aurora Central’s Kaleb Atherly (12.3 rpg). For good measure, the EMAC Player of the Year blocked 82 total shots for an average of 2.9 per game that put him the top five in 5A, while he also came away with 1.6 steals per game. Jewett will play in the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
