Conference Preview

The entire 4A Classification look different as the realignment not only moved teams in and out, but changed the breakup from North/South to East/West. The biggest change, however, is that there is guaranteed to be a new 4A state champion since the VHSL realignment two years ago, as the two time defending state champs IC Norcom moved down to 3A. That leaves a wide open race for a lot of underrated schools with a lot of under the radar talent. Here’s our picks for the 4A East Preseason All Region Teams.

MVP: Travius Smith; Senior WF; Lake Taylor

The long and freakishly athletic wing is not just typically the most productive player on the floor, he’s the most exciting player as well. Standing 6’4 with a 6’8 wingspan, Smith’s length allows him to create easy transition opportunities with deflections, and when he’s in transition he’s going to finish with style. He’s a high motor, highly productive player that will do whatever it takes to win, and he’ll be in a prime position to lead Lake Taylor on a deep postseason run if they gel enough in time.
