For Dylan Garrity, his game has always centered around a pass-first mentality.
That's a major part of a work ethic the Edison High senior has brought to the basketball court, where he has carved out a highly successful prep career. And the 6-foot-1 point guard, who captains the Chargers, is still adding to his résumé.
"As far back as I can remember, I've always had that mentality," said the 18-year-old. "Pass-first is definitely something I've done my entire life. Every coach I've ever played for, at any level, has told me that I don't shoot enough. I've just always enjoyed helping out my teammates."
That unselfish attitude has benefitted Garrity in several ways, one of which recently put him into the school's basketball record book.
Garrity last week passed Eric Ferraro as the school's career assists leader. It happened Dec. 23, the day Edison defeated Tustin at the North/South Challenge. Ferraro had set the new standard of 376 assists in 2009.
