Mesa High has as rich a football history as any high school in Arizona. Boys basketball was good in the school's early years. But it really picked up in the 1980s under coach Paul Newendyke, and hasn't stopped rolling under Shawn Lynch in the early 2000s and now with Shane Burcar in charge.

It is easy to find 10 players but extremely tough to pick a No. 1. Any of the top three players can make a case for being the best basketball player in school history. Here are my top all-time Mesa High boys basketball players. STORY
