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 Ian Anderson, a senior at Potomac Falls.
There’s little doubt that after a monster junior year, Ian Anderson will build off that and produce at a high level once again. We believe that his improved jump shot will help Anderson become more efficient as a scorer while opening up driving lanes, and giving him an added element which will make him that much more difficult to defend. He should also be able to rebound and block shots at a high rate.
When you look up at the banners in the gym at Potomac Falls, it doesn’t take long to see that they’ve had a good formula for success under Jeff Hawes. There’s no reason to believe that with Anderson as the leader, they won’t be able to replicate this.
While they don’t play in an ultra-competitive private school league, Potomac Falls has fared well in their offseason tests by matching up against tough opponents like St. Andrew’s and St. Maria Goretti. With teams like Rock Ridge and Stone Bridge emerging as legitimate rivals, and the always tough Loudoun Valley on the schedule, the Panthers will definitely find themselves in some competitive games this season.
