Bronchos News · Barnhizer Brothers and Avery Beaver Receive Postseason Honors


Three members of the Lafayette Jefferson High School boys basketball team — Braxton Barnhizer, Brooks Barnhizer and Avery Beaver — were honored by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association.

The all-state teams are selected through a process by the IBCA.  A panel of 20 IBCA coaches – 16 from current regional areas, three district representatives and the committee chairman – meet to review the nominations, vote and finalize the selections.

Braxton Barnhizer was named to the Senior All-State Supreme 15, while LJHS senior Beaver earned honorable mention on the IBCA Large School All-State Team.  Brooks Barnhizer, a junior on the Bronchos in 2019-20, was named to the Underclass All-State Supreme 15 squad.

This trio led Lafayette Jeff to a 21-5 overall record, the North Central Conference Championship with an 8-1 mark and a school record for single-year regular season victories.
