“Trust the process” is a phrase that has been made famous by the Philadelphia 76ers that related to their willingness to tank in order to earn the best draft pick possible. From there, their hopes were to draft multiple number one picks and build their team from the ground up.
The Woodlawn Warriors could use that same phrase for their team, just for different reasons. More specifically, their senior trio made up of Mark Brinkley, Demauri Warren and Reshaud Garrison. The three have been in the program since they were freshmen, which is something very rare these days in high school basketball. Garrison was a staple in their success throughout this season. The Warriors claimed the Baltimore County championship a couple of weeks ago. Their season ended with a loss to Milford Mill in the 3A North Section I Final.
The 6-foot-2 guard was the floor spacer because of his ability to shoot from three. Brinkley and Warren made it routine in getting inside the paint and forced the defense to collapse, which opened up things for Garrison on the outside.
With that being said, Garrison made it a focus of his to expand his game coming into this season, and the improvements showed in stints throughout the course of games.
“I had to improve on not turning the ball over and tightening up my handles,” Garrison said after a win against Dundalk. “Doing that has helped me not only be able to create for others, but also get shots for myself.”
The senior guard finished his season averaging 15 points, three assists and two rebounds per game. Garrison is the type of player that always has a chance of getting hot and putting up a crooked number in the scoring column. In the second round of state playoff play, Garrison put up a career-high 36 points in an 83-59 win over Towson.
A few schools from all levels have reached out to Garrison, but he currently holds no offers and his recruitment remains very much open, he told Prep Hoops.
