The 2020-21 school year has begun in the Philadelphia area and schools within the city are already gearing up for winter sports.

While there are big question marks in the air due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, there is optimism for basketball to be played, especially in the Philadelphia Catholic League, arguably the most competitive high school athletics conference in the area.

Let’s take a look at five rising juniors who could have a massive impact for their schools this upcoming season.

Mandon Seapoe Mandon Seapoe 5'10" | PG Bonner-Prendergast | 2022 State PA , PG Bonner & Prendie: Seapoe is expected to be relied on much more in a program that finished in the top four of the PCL last season, just one of five schools to win 10 league games in 2019-20. He has the build of a prototypical point guard with speed. He’s someone you can rely on when it comes to controlling the game on the offensive end and can make plays on the defensive end, a good off-ball defender who can get on the break fast after a steal and take it to the rim himself or dish it off to a teammate, an extremely valuable asset.
