Faces off the Field: Garrett Dunn, sophomore forward, Regents


What’s your favorite memory of playing basketball at Regents?

Probably beating Hyde Park in our first district game at home last year. It was a close game and my first-ever district game on varsity. The atmosphere was awesome, and the game came down to the wire. Fortunately, we won.

How far can this team go if you play up to your potential?

I believe if we play to our potential our team could win district, and make a good run in the (TAPPS) state playoffs.

Which school would you consider to be your biggest rival?

Hyde Park. Ever since I’ve been at Regents, which was kindergarten, the Hyde Park vs. Regents events have always been fun to go to.

Do you have a favorite bonding experience involving your teammates?

I’ve always loved when we go to Dallas for a tournament around the beginning of December. It allows any freshman or new players to build relationships with the team. I was in that situation last year, and it was a fun trip.

Other than basketball, what do you like most about going to school at Regents?

I enjoy Regents because it gives you a challenge academically but also allows you to have fun with your friends.

If you could have dinner with any four people in the history of the world, whom would you invite?

Baker Mayfield, Blake Griffin, (fictional character) Dwight Schrute (from “The Office”) and Brent Musburger.

Why did you choose Baker Mayfield?

Because even though I live in Austin, I’m a huge Oklahoma Sooners fan.

If you had the choice of being all-state in basketball or valedictorian of your senior class, which would you choose?

I would choose valedictorian of my senior class. Even though it would be a great honor to be all-state, finishing at the top academically would be a greater goal that would affect future parts of my life.

What’s the best advice anyone has given to you?

Probably just to always have fun, which is what my dad will say to me. In intense games, you always have to remember it’s just a game and enjoy it.

What are your plans after you graduate?

After I graduate, I plan to attend college. I don’t know yet where I’m attending since I’m only a sophomore; however, I’ll start looking into colleges I’m interested in this summer.

Do you have any pregame rituals?

I don’t have any pregame rituals besides listening to music.
