For Amarillo Globe-News: Maupin Named Preseason Player of the Year (Girls Basketball)

The 5-foot-11 guard out of Gruver has been called a lot of things: tough, gritty, hard-working — all the types of things West Texans pride themselves on.

Add in a heavy dose of insane athletic ability and talent with every step she takes, and she’s a bonafide West Texas star. On the court, she makes that ability known, not backing down from a challenge or giving up when she’s needed during a crucial moment.

Now, she can add another label: Amarillo Globe-News Preseason Player of the Year.
