Winston-Salem Prep is no stranger at having a bullseye on their back. That tends to happen when you win four state championships in a total of 7 seasons. Prep won titles in 2008, 2012, 2013 and 2014. This years team has the tools to do it again.

Daivien Williamson

Daivien Williamson-The senior guard is one of the more electrifying prospects in the 2018 class. His speed and creativity in the open court sets him a part from many other guards. Williamson recently took an official visit to James Madison University and is also considering East Tennessee State, Wofford and Georgia Southern.

Justice Goodloe-Williamson’s counterpart in the backcourt, Goodloe has offers from Georgia Southern and Gardner-Webb University. He is a 5-foot-10 point guard who is crafty with the ball in his hands and can score off the dribble or knock down the three-point shot.

Head Coach Andre Gould had this to say about his team this upcoming season, “Winston-Salem Prep is returning a battle tested and senior laden team for the 2017-2018 season. After falling short last year, this year’s squad us dialed in and focused on one thing!
This year’s team has a solid mixture of talent lead by our backcourt. Senior guards Daivien Williamson and Justice Goodloe will be the leaders of this group, both four-year varsity starters here at WSPA, they know the task at hand and they are fully aware of what has to be done to get there! Along with seniors KJ Watson and Corey Rutherford we have solid seniors expected to make considerable contributions to lead us into this season. Junior guard Chaz Gwyn is one that will continue to make his presence felt as well this year, coming off a big summer and a Peach Jam championship, he looks to come into his own this season! Additions of juniors Zack Austin, Essih Aird, and Jalen Crawley will be welcomed to this year’s squad as well and will contribute as well! Freshman Zaire Patterson will be one to watch for the Phoenix this season as he’s preparing to make his debut!”
