Season highlights: With Ian Calvert coming on board as head coach, Gateway won 15 games — up from nine in 2017-18 — and earned its way into the Class 5A state playoffs for the first time in nearly a decade. Harrison was a key part of the resurgence as one of the two double-digit scorers for the Olys, as he poured in 10 points per game (up from an average of 8.8 last season), boosted by a team-high 46 3-pointers, including at least one in 22 of 24 games. Harrison also upped his role as a distributor as he more than doubled his assist average from the previous season to lead the team at 3.9 per contest, while he also contributed 2.7 rebounds and 0.8 steals per contest on his way to being selected to the All-EMAC first team. He will play in the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
