All-Broward County First Team honor for Skyla Osceola

American Heritage senior Skyla Osceola has been named All-Broward County First Team.

American Heritage senior Skyla Osceola earned a postseason honor in March when the 5-foot-10 standout guard was named Sun Sentinel First Team All-Broward County for classes 1A through 6A.

As a starting point guard, Osceola helped the Patriots compile a 27-3 record. She was a force in the 6A playoffs. She scored 28 points and dished out 11 assists in a district championship victory against Archbishop McCarthy. In a regional quarterfinal victory against Fort Pierce-Westwood, she had 17 points and 10 assists.

Osceola, of the Hollywood Reservation, helped the Patriots earn only their second trip to states in the program’s history by scoring 22 points and 12 assists in a regional championship win against Leesburg.

Heritage was ousted by state champion Ribault in the state semifinals Feb. 23 in Lakeland. Osceola scored seven points, had three assists and went 3-for-4 from the foul line.

Overall, Osceola led American Heritage in assists with an average of 10 per game, twice as many as anyone else on the team. She was second in points per game with 16, behind only Sun Sentinel Player of the Year Femi Funeus. Heritage claimed more honors as coach Greg Farias was named Coach of the Year.

Entering the state semifinal, Osceola was the team leader in free-throw percentage with 81 percent.

Osceola and her teammate Taylor Smith have signed with Nova Southeastern University in Davie.

Before the loss to Ribault, Heritage had won 22 straight games, a streak that lasted more than two months.
