Truly special players come along only once in a while. Havelock boys basketball coach Bill Fryczynski feels he has that in sophomore Kyran Bowman.

“I’ve been doing this for a long time, 45 years to be exact, and I think he is the most talented player I’ve ever coached,” Fryczynski said.

Bowman, a 6-foot-2 guard, is scoring at 20.6 points per game. He’s received some interest from East Carolina already, but does not yet hold any scholarship offers. He said his main goal is to change that this season.

“In addition to our team playing well, I definitely want to have a Division I basketball offer by the end of the year,” Bowman said. “Leading the area in scoring feels great. I come out every day and work hard and keep striving for success.”

Bowman also stars as a wide receiver on the school’s state championship football team, and has a football offer from North Carolina.

On the hardwood, Fryczynski likes to use his star in an up-tempo offense that usually leads to breakaway dunks.

“He is what Dick Vitale always calls a ‘lead guard,’” Fryczynski said. “He’s not a point guard, and not a two-guard, but like a combination of the two positions.”
