Stanley Bonewitz: Catching Up With A Basketball Legend
By Mark McKee

Texas high school basketball has produced some legendary talent over the years: Ira Terrell, Eddie Owens, Shaquille O’Neal, Larry Johnson and Rashard Lewis. But none have captured the average fan more than Stanley Bonewitz of East Central in San Antonio.

Even to this day he is still one of the most talked about players to ever grace the Drum in Austin. His exploits on the court have taken on legendary proportions. Anybody who saw Bonewitz play will never forget his style and flair for the game. He played the glamour position of point guard with the ball in his hands on the fast break as well as shooting a three pointer.  The position requires split second decisions made at full speed. Few were able to do it any better than Bonewitz.

Texas has produced a plethora of talented point guards who have gone on to great success at the college and pro levels including T.J. Ford,  Deron Williams, Mookie Blaylock,  D.J. Augustine, Micheal Williams and going all the way back to Rob Williams of Houston Milby. Bonewitz ranks right up there with the best the state has seen.

When coaches reminisce about the greats that they have seen at the position, one name always comes up: Stanley Bonewitz. As Stan said himself with a laugh, “Every year that goes by I get better.”  The amazing aspect of Bonewitz’s play was not so much the fact that he had unreal numbers and a great deal of success but rather the speed and skill he performed at under extreme pressure.
