Who are the best shot-blockers currently attending school in Montgomery County? The purpose of this article is to highlight some of the very best, regardless of class. Below you will find, listed in alphabetical order by last name, 10 of the top rim-protectors from MoCo. This is part of a series that will aim to highlight players based on various superlatives.

Note: these superlative lists will not be mutually exclusive. If someone can handle the ball and do something else (i.e. shoot) at a high level, they will be included in both lists. 

Matt Akers | Georgetown Prep ’21

Vigilant is a good word to describe Akers' mindset on defense, and blocking shots is certainly one of his biggest strengths. He's active all the time and constantly trying to make plays that will benefit his team.

Spencer CaverlySpencerCaverly6'7" | CWhitman | 2021MD | Whitman ’21

Caverly's effort is one thing apart from most of his peers. He is never afraid to challenge anyone at the rim, and at 6-foot-7, he can be a daunting figure to contend with. 

Ike Onu-ChiedoIkeOnu-Chiedo6'4" | CChurchill | 2021MD | Churchill ’21

A freak athlete with length, incredible leaping ability, and instinctive timing, Onu-Chiedo is a natural rim protector.
