"He's always had leadership skills but this year, those leadership skills are really starting to show. Scoring might look like it comes easily for him, but he has always, always, been more concerned about putting the team first."
Garrity, who said he has become more vocal this year as a leader, adding that it's "something that is new to me," has been on a roll this season. He has been named tournament MVP in all three tournaments (La Quinta, Irvine World News Gary Raya Classic, Desert Heat Invitational) the Chargers have competed in and won. In the championship game at the Desert Heat Invitational on Dec. 30, Garrity was double-teamed but still managed 19 points en route to most valuable player honors after the Chargers downed Simi Valley.
He also was named game MVP after scoring 23 points against Tustin in a 48-36 victory by the Chargers at the North/South Challenge Dec. 23 at El Toro High.
