The 6-foot-2, 185-pound junior guard led the Indians to a 20-3 record and the sectional semifinals this past season. Girard averaged 50.0 points, seven rebounds and six assists per game and shattered the state career scoring record—he will enter his senior season with 3,306 total points. A two-time First Team All-State honoree, he was also the Albany Times Union Player of the Year, the Foothills Council League MVP and a MaxPreps Second Team Sophomore All-American.
Girard has maintained an A-minus average in the classroom. He will begin his senior year of high school this fall.
Also a football standout, Girard has served as an elementary school mentor and has volunteered locally on behalf of a soup kitchen, clothing donation drives and youth sports programs.
