Harrison Ingram ’21

To say Harrison Ingram has made a significant impact on St. Mark’s is an understatement. He is simply one of the most dominant student-athletes to ever step foot on our campus and will be remembered as someone who not only maximized his incredible talents as an athlete but did so in a way that represented our School with the utmost integrity and class.
 
Harrison excels both on the court and in the classroom and was truly a model teammate whose selfless nature embodies the characteristics of a Marksman student-athlete. The many accomplishments and accolades he has accrued during his time at St. Mark’s are nothing short of astounding and include some of the highest national honors a high school basketball player can attain. Despite all of his remarkable success, Harrison has always maintained his affable, humble personality and has consistently made a strong effort to support and encourage the growth of his fellow students.
 
Harrison’s work ethic is off the charts, and he has tirelessly pushed himself in pursuit of excellence. He is a fierce competitor who has challenged himself to improve each and every day through an unwavering dedication to his craft. His strong character and leadership were instrumental in the recent success of our basketball program, and he has exemplified what it means to be a student-athlete. We will certainly miss Harrison’s spectacular performances here at 10600 and will watch with immense pride as he takes his extraordinary talents to Stanford to play for the Cardinal basketball team next year.
 
Coach Greg Guiler reflects on his time with one of the most special student-athletes to ever play for the Lions basketball team:
 
“He makes it look so effortless’ is often said by his admirers over the last 4 years while watching Harrison Ingram play. He is one of the most electrifying athletes to ever don the Blue & Gold at St. Mark’s. A fun-loving teammate who cherishes the game, Harrison’s long hours in the gym and incomparable savvy render him a hero on the hardwood and a sensational leader in the locker room. His legacy will forever echo as one of Texas basketball’s all-time greatest players and people.”
