With a limited number of days available this year between the official start of practice and the first game of the season, many schools used Thanksgiving break to get in some practices. On Friday, we had the opportunity to drop by practice at Central Catholic, Clackamas, Oregon City, and Beaverton and here's a look at some of the top players we saw.
Isaiah Amato (2020 Central Catholic) - The Rams will be deep and talented but will require leadership and Amato seems up to the task. The senior guard was going at it fairly hard and was especially impressive with his slick ball-handling and passing, constantly looking to set up the open man.
Darius Gakwasi (2021 Central Catholic) - Gakwasi was solid all-around, shooting the ball fairly well from the outside but also looking for opportunities to attack the basket. He handled the ball well in the open court and made good decisions.
DeRay Seamster (2020 Central Catholic) - Seamster is the X-factor for the Rams. The combo guard was hitting his perimeter jumpers, getting loose in the open floor, and finishing at the rim in transition. Defensively, he was all over his assignment playing tough in the man-to-man.
