HAVRE — Less than two months ago, Reed Point-Rapelje basketball standout Trevor Herzog suited up for the annual Hi-Line Invitational Tournament on the Armory Gymnasium court at MSU-Northern. This week, Herzog announced the Armory would be his future home.
Lights’ head coach Shawn Huse announced the signing of Herzog, a 6-foot-6 forward who spent three years as the captain of the Renegades. Herzog was a two-time all-state and first-team all-conference selection, while earning second-team all-conference honors his sophomore season.
“We are thrilled Trevor and his family chose the Lights and MSU-Northern,” Huse said in a release. “I feel he will be a great fit here and am excited about his potential. With his size, shooting and work ethic, he has a chance to vie for significant minutes down the road after developing and working within our program. Most importantly, he is another great teammate that will enhance everything we do with how he takes care of his business both on and off of the floor.”
Herzog guided the Reed Point-Rapelje squad to the Southern C divisional tournament in each of the past three seasons, averaging 20 points, six rebounds and three assists per game this past winter. He also shot 47 percent from the floor and 35 percent from the 3-point line. Herzog finished his RPR career with 1,464 total points.
Herzog holds a 3.69 grade-point average and plans to study technical sciences at MSU-N. He is a member of the student council and National Honor Society.
“Trevor is a great kid from a great family. He is an outstanding basketball player, and a pleasure to coach. He is an extremely high-character individual,” said Reed Point-Rapelje basketball coach Jerry Thompson.
Herzog corralled three rebounds, had an assist and one block during the championship game of the Hi-Line Invitational, helping the Class C boys to a 95-91 win over the Class AA squad.
