In anticipation of the upcoming high school season, we will be taking a closer look at various teams and players throughout Maryland, DC, and Virginia. In this edition we anticipate the top scorers in the DC Metro Area.
QUENTIN JAMES | LAKE BRADDOCK ’19
Quentin James orchestrated one of the most high powered offenses in the DMV last year, and will be handed the keys one last time this season. The pacy left-hander went for 25 or more on 10 different occasions as a junior, including a season high of 42. James is one of the most explosive guards you will find in the DMV, and he also hit 43 threes last year which means you have to honor his jump shot.
ALEX FITCH | ROCK RIDGE ’19
Alex Fitch averaged nearly 20 points per game in his first year at Rock Ridge, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see that number increase this year. The 6-foot-4 sharp shooter has added strength and versatility to his game, which will help him expand his scoring arsenal. Look for Fitch to rely most on his jump shot, which is one of the purest you will find.
ANTHONY HARRIS | PAUL VI ’19
All signs are pointing to an aggressive Anthony Harris at Paul VI this season. He is coming off a junior season in which he showed signs of dominance, and he showed this summer with Team Takeover that he can shoot the 3 at high percentages. Typically in PVI’s system you never really know who will lead the team in scoring on a given night, but we think Harris will do so more often than others.
JAY HEATH | WOODROW WILSON ’19
Jay Heath will have several weapons around him this season at Wilson, and that will make him even more dangerous. The Boston College commit can get to the basket whenever he wants, and his jump shot gets better each day. Heath can go toe to toe with virtually any lead guard in the country, and we might get the chance to see that this year as Wilson will try to play as many national games as possible.
JAQUAN JOHNSON-TERRY | TC WILLIAMS ’19
TC Williams just announced that they will be hiring a new coach, and whoever gets the job will be happy that Jaquan Johnson-Terry is on the roster. The long and lanky shooting guard can stretch the floor with the best, and will be the primary option once again this year.
