The TAAC has been sneaky competitive lately. With talent flowing through Cardinal Stritch, Maumee Valley, Toledo Christian, and Ottawa Hills, this conference's talent now rivals its peers around the area. 

Stritch and Maumee Valley have also been major players in the OHSAA postseason, highlighted by Stritch's appearance in the Division III state semifinals last year. Maumee Valley made it to the regional finals before being put out by eventual state champion Convoy Crestview. 

While several key players like Zeb Jackson, Jordan Burton, and Tony Delvaux are gone, at least two teams have a shot to make another run in 2019-20. 

First Team
Joey Holifield (2020) | 6-2 PG | Cardinal Stritch

Holifield has shared point guard responsibilities with Jordan Burton since his first day in a Cardinal uniform. Burton, a 2019 graduate now playing at Notre Dame (OH), was their leading scorer at 14.8 per game last season; the type of skilled player who could create a shot on any given possession. 

The Oakland commit has a version of that again this season in backcourt mates Devyn Jones and Jhaiden Wilson. But we do anticipate Holifield to be in more of a score-minded role
