King’s Way’s standout point guard Bryson Metz transfers to Union

Sophomore point guard Bryson Metz, who dazzled in his first two seasons at King’s Way Christian, has enrolled at Union High School, multiple sources confirmed to Scorebook Live Washington. 

Metz, a two-time first team all-1A Trico League selection, averaged 16 points, six assists and three steals as a sophomore. 

Metz’s family is in the process of moving into the Union boundary. Bryson’s father, Matt Metz, said the decision is what’s best for the whole family.

Metz suffered a fracture in his foot that kept him out for much of the second half of the regular season, but returned and put up several 20-plus point performances in the postseason. He helped lead the Knights to the 1A state quarterfinals in March. The crafty 5-foot-9 floor general was also a first team all-league selection in football at receiver and defensive back. 

Metz starred as a point guard immediately as a freshman for the Knights and was a key figure in their run to the 1A state championship game as an 11-seed in 2019.

Union is coming off of an undefeated regular season and third-place finish in the 4A state tournament, and will be tasked with replacing several key contributors, including WIBCA’s Mr. Basketball Tanner Toolson and point guard Brad Lackey, a Whitworth commit.

King’s Way coach Daven Harmeling was “shocked” when he found out Metz was leaving, but wishes him the best.

“He’s going to be a terror at the 4A level. Anyone who thinks differently is sorely mistaken,” Harmeling said. “Amazing kid, had a really positive impact on my life. I love him, I believe in him.”
