Returning and Impact Players:

Tampa Catholic:

  • Coming off a 25-6 overall record and going 10-0 in districts last year, Coach Don Dziagwa and top national prospect 2017 SF Kevin Knox looks ready to win there district again.  The Crusaders looses a outside threat in graduating Thomas Dziagwa to Oklaoma State but will not loose a step with much help from 2018 PG Tai Strickland and 2018 transfer SG Messiah Turner.

Brooks DeBartolo Colligiate:

  • Coach Lavel Dumont has a different looking team this year but still has experience.  The back-court that consist of 2018 Brandon Hale and 2019 Liron Thomas are very vibrant offensively.  The solid piece that’s must be the focus is 2017 PF Craig Hall, he’s a good shot blocker, weak side defender and rim runner.  2018 SF DeShawn Todman will be the x-factor for the phoenix.

Berkeley Prep:

  • 2017 F Kaleeyl Findlay will be the most consistent piece and force in the paint.  The Buccaneers has a few guys to watch for in 2018 Myles Hyatt and 2019 Kegan Karnes, they will play hard for Coach Bobby Reinhart.
