Whatcom Hoops Boys Top 30: #13 Caden Heutink

In an incredible season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops is ranking the top 30 boys. Each day we’ll feature an amazing player in our county and count down until we get to #1. So join us daily as we honor the best of the best.


Caden Heutink, junior, Nooksack Valley

WHY HE’S #13: The engine that fueled the Pioneers’ offense, Heutink averaged nearly 5 assists a game and helped Nooksack Valley come within two points of reaching the state tournament for the first time in more than a decade. But this season, the 6-foot-1 point guard became more than just a passer, leading the Pioneers with 12 points a game.

COACH JASON HEUTINK: “Caden led our team in assists per game and steals per game. He was a great court leader and ball handler.  He always kept our team in control and did a great job all season.”
