Boys Basketball

5 questions with Prairie High School point guard Kameron Osborn

One of the best pure point guards in the state of Washington, Kameron Osborn has led the Prairie High School boys basketball team to a 15-7 record and a second place finish in the 3A Greater St. Helens League. On Wednesday night Osborn hit a last-second 15-footer to lift the Falcons to a 56-54 win over Timberline in a 3A district tournament game, clinching a state playoff berth for Prairie.

Osborn, a 6-foot senior, is averaging more than 18 points per game and is about to break my all-time scoring record at Prairie High School. He will play college basketball for Oregon Tech next season. I recently reached out to Osborn to ask him five questions:

How would you describe your game?

A pure point guard.

What are your goals for the season?

Team goal: Have a winning season and get to the postseason.

Individual goal: Be the all-time leading scorer at Prairie.

How would you describe your coach (Kyle Brooks)?

Coach Brooks is old school.

Who is your favorite player?

Derek Rose.

What is your favorite gym in the state to play in?

The Tacoma Dome, which hopefully we get another chance to play in!
