2018 StickStar Player of the Year
Updated: Feb 21
Ramsey McCreary - Woodlands - Notre Dame
The 2018 season was thrilling to say the least. A year chalked full of parity and quality talent on every sideline. Standing at the top of the mountain when the year ended were the Woodlands Highlanders, securing Houston’s first state championship since 2006.
2018 was a magical year for the Highlanders and there is no doubt that Senior Captain Ramsey McCreary was the catalyst for their run at the State Championship. While the Highlanders certainly had depth and a balanced offensive effort, McCreary was the player each team had to key on and work tirelessly to limit. Easier said than done! It’s hard to keep McCreary’s offensive production in check for an entire contest as he has the ability to make his teammates better by distributing and drawing a considerable amount of attention. Due to the offensive options available to compliment McCreary, he found himself with plenty of opportunities to finish, but still had to make it so. Due to a relentless off the field work ethic, and continued dedication to improvement, McCreary was up to the task and ultimately garnered MVP of the State Championship weekend.
For this continued drive to improve and for the ability to perform at the highest level all season, we were proud to announce Ramsey McCreary as the 2018 StickStar Player of the Year!

McCreary was highly touted and has earned a distinguished list of accolades throughout his career. An impressive mixture of dynamic explosion, skill, and creativity, Ramsey burst onto the scene early in his recruitment. While he was always highly acclaimed, he never became complacent. Season after season, he put in more work, but was also smart about his approach. He took care of his body and focused on his athleticism, which made him both a durable and dependable player. This durability was crucial as he took plenty of knocks throughout the season, always drawing the opposition's toughest assignment. We are excited to see this skill and ability transfer to the next level as he works to secure playing time for the Fighting Irish, at the University of Notre Dame.
Congratulations, Ramsey, on a tremendous high school career and best of luck as a Texan at the Next Level!
