As we begin our final stretch into the much anticipated start to another high school season, it’s time to take a closer look at what to expect. In this series, we will be previewing various regions and classifications within the VHSL in an effort to highlight who we think are the top teams and prospects. Below we preview and predict Class 6, Region D.
This region is a very difficult one to call, with several teams who could contend and find themselves at the top of the standings come season’s end. We know that three of the region’s best players are featured at Centreville, Marshall, and Oakton respectively. Bryce Douglas, now a senior, has been one of the area’s best scorers for a few years now. Douglas will lead Centreville, who have added PVI transfer Chris Kuzemka. The Marshall Statesmen are led by Daniel Deaver, who is a flat out matchup problem at 6-foot-7. There won’t be many who will be able to defend Deaver 1v1, and this should open up easy looks for his teammates. Oakton’s Garrett Johnson is a developing wing guard who can shoot it as well as anyone in the region. At 6-foot-5, Johnson will bring versatility and size to go along with consistent scoring.
Regional Champions: Marshall
Regional Player of the Year: Daniel Deaver | 6’7 Forward | Marshall ’19
Daniel Deaver is a legitimate division one prospect, and has the experience necessary to lead his team to a run. If Deaver can elevate his teammates like we think he will, we believe the Statesmen can be a tough matchup on a given night for any opponent.
