It’s that time of the year again! Over the next several days, we’ll be taking 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 profile Cameron Brown, a senior at Eleanor Roosevelt
One of the best things Cameron Brown has to offer is his versatility. For Roosevelt, he will fill a variety of roles. A role which we think he will thrive in is as a playmaker. Brown is a terrific passer with good vision and instincts for the game. There’s no doubt that he will score the ball, and his perimeter jumper continues to improve. Brown will also be asked to defend the opposing team’s best player and rebound, which are two things he excels at.
Year in year out, Eleanor Roosevelt is not just regarded as one of the area’s top public school teams, but one of the best teams in the DMV regardless of classification. This year will be no different, as we are considering them for a top-10 spot in our initial poll which will release next month.
Not many public school teams challenge themselves with their schedule the way the Raiders do, and this started with a rigorous offseason schedule in which they competed at the Capitol Hoops Summer League while also facing teams like Westtown in a team camp setting. ER has pre-season scrimmages lined up against St. Stephens & St. Agnes, Bishop O’Connell, and Frederick Douglass. Year in year out, they face DeMatha, a game which the Raiders will play at home this season. Bowie, Wise, Bladensburg, and Flowers are all tough rivals who will challenge them.
