In this series, we will take an up close look at 10 First Team All-Met candidates in the DMV. With all things being considered, our prediction covers three categories: individual production, team performance, and level of competition. We will release one candidate each day, with the players organized in alphabetical order by last name. Here, we highlight Loudoun Valley 2018 wing Jordan Miller.
Miller was a walking double double last season for Head Coach Chad Dawson, and we don’t see why this should change. The 6’5+ senior has added bulk in the offseason, and should build off the momentum he’s started in recent years. Look for Miller to do a bit of everything. This especially includes facilitating offense, and protecting the rim.
In Miller’s four years at Valley, he can count the number of games he’s lost on two hands. The Vikings return a strong core from last year’s state championship team, and are poised for another run.
This may be the weakest argument we can make for Miller, but this year is a bit different. The Vikings play a tougher schedule than normal this season. They face a tough test at Saint James this week, and against Battlefield on December 16. If Valley can put together another impressive run of wins, it will be hard to leave Miller off the All Met First Team.
