With buzz beginning to pick up around the approaching season, many players will be looking to lead their schools to success this season. This series will review my initial 15 players to watch as potential MVP candidates in the 757 this season. While this list will obviously be subject to change as the season begins and progresses, right now in my opinion these players have the best cases as MVP candidates. When considering this list, my criteria included considering their resumes and their current projected team situation.

7. Allen StrothersAllenStrothers6'2" | PGMenchville | 2021StateVA | 6’2 PG 2021 | Menchville

Why: Allen StrothersAllenStrothers6'2" | PGMenchville | 2021StateVA is a prototype lead guard for the next level. At 6’2, Strothers is lanky and athletic, allowing him to harrass his opponents. Menchville lost a couple major pieces which will allow for Strothers to step up and assert himself more. I expect career high numbers from this rising senior as he looks to keep Menchville in contention. With his abilities, expect a statline around 15+ points, 5 assists and 2+ steals a game easily.

Why: His presence in the paint. Last year, Melvin Jr
