Outside of intramural sports, Barling said his career on the hardwood is over. He plans to attend the University of Texas in Arlington.
Rounding out the Palo Pinto County natives was Graford Jackrabbit Dylan Hart. The 6-foot-4 forward posted 10 points – six from behind the arc – and two rebounds to end his high school playing days.
"I just came out here to have fun," he said. "It was definitely different. Most of the teams we played this year didn't have half the talent that these two teams did."
After helping his Jackrabbits make a run to the Regional Finals, Hart said his basketball days are likely behind him. He plans to attend Weatherford College, but said he still may go to some hoops tryouts with Graford head coach Ty Tabor before all is said and done.
