In anticipation of the upcoming high school season, we will be taking a closer look at various teams and players throughout the DC Metro Area. In this edition we highlight point guards who could find themselves among the top assist men in the area this season.

XAVIER JOHNSON | EPISCOPAL ’19

Xavier Johnson is now entering his fourth year as the starting point guard at Episcopal, and one thing he’s done well throughout his high school career is take care of the ball. Johnson is an old-school floor general who can score, but likes to keep his teammates confidence high and set the tone defensively.

PHILLIP JORDAN | ST. ALBANS ’19

Phillip Jordan is one of the best vocal leaders you will find in the DMV, but he also leads with his actions. Jordan will be a vital piece to St. Albans, who could surprise some teams this year. 

XAVIER LIPSCOMB | ST. STEPHENS & ST. AGNES ’20

St. Stephens & St. Agnes relies on Xavier Lipscomb to propel them on both ends of the floor. The crafty 6-foot-3 left-handed lead guard contributes in many areas on both ends of the floor, but his leadership intangibles are what sets him apart.

JEREMY ROACH | PAUL VI ’20

Jeremy Roach will have plenty of opportunities to make plays in PVI’s high octane system. Roach should hand out at least 5 dimes per contest, but he can also go for about 20 or 30 points if you’re not paying close attention.

JAHMIR YOUNG | DEMATHA ’19

Jahmir Young returns as DeMatha’s starting point guard after playing a key role on last year’s championship caliber squad. The 6-foot-1 lefty is one of the most reliable guards in the DMV, and is poised for another strong campaign.
