His junior season was highlighted when he hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Wolves to victory in the opening round of the Class B state tournament.

“I was just focused on the game,” Stafne remembers about the play. “Juliun (Benson) kicked it out and I shot it. I had full confidence in it.”

Stafne’s hobbies include watching NBA basketball games especially the Golden State Warriors.

His favorite class is cardio. Stafne’s favorite teacher is Frank Benson.
