Self pulls up a jump shot in their second round playoff game loss to Foothill.

Going into the 2018-19 basketball season, there was a lot of hype that senior guard Dylan Self had to live up to, and he did just that this season. Dylan talked highly of their team accomplishments this season, “It’s been a great season; we’ve had the best record we’ve had in multiple years. We won our first league title in 29 years, and we had a first-round home playoff game.” Throughout the season, Self averaged 21.0 points per game, 5.6 rebounds per game, 3.5 assists per game, and 2.9 steals per game. He also led Division 4 and the South Sequoia League in points per game, which is seen as very impressive.

When asked what his biggest accomplishment was this season, he wasn’t really sure what it was, so he said, “Probably winning the S.S.L. M.V.P.; it’s hard to say though because I joined the 1,000 point club and have a chance to be first-team all-area.” Out of Dylan’s whole career on varsity, his biggest in-game moment came his senior season for him: “Dunking at the buzzer vs. Cesar Chavez for my first in-game dunk.” Self finished his senior season with 538 points, 90 assists, 73 steals, and 65 blocks. Self will go and play at Bakersfield College after high school to continue his academics and basketball career.
