State championship?

Signed to play at a big name college program?

Foster Loyer has checked off every box a high school basketball player could possibly imagine.

The Michigan State signee was named the Hal Schram Mr. Basketball Award winner, given by the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan on Monday.

Loyer beat out other outstanding players from across the state, including East Lansing's Brandon Johns, David Dejulius of Detroit East English, and fellow Spartan signee Marcus Bingham Jr. of GrandRapids CC.

"It's an honor be with that group but I think, for me, one of the biggest things is the success of my teammates," Loyer said.

"I don't think it's fully sank in yet, it's something that they will never be able to take away from me, you tell your kids stories, it's a pretty cool honor to have."

Loyer is the second player from Clarkston High School to win the award, after Dane Fife, his future assistant coach at Michigan State, did it in 1998.
