It has been quite the start to 2021 with many games canceled and moved around already.

I took in a few matchups in the Tampa Bay area.

Here is a look at the notes I jotted down in terms of standouts.

Joshua Martin (Wiregrass Ranch)

Without 2021 lead guard Quincy SmithQuincySmith5'11" | CGWiregrass Ranch | 2021StateFL, it was the Joshua Martin show for Wiregrass Ranch in a convincing victory over Countryside on Saturday night. The 2022 5-9 guard scored 22 points in the opening half and he was doubled mostly in the second half but still totaled 40 points, tying a school record. He is speedy fast and really hard to slow down in the open floor. Martin is undersized and a true grit warrior. Also, 2021 6-0 guard Daniel Disalvo was active with 10 points.

Karter KnoxKarterKnox6'5" | CGTampa Catholic | 2024FL & Roderick Watson-PearceyRoderickWatson-Pearcey6'4" | SFTampa Catholic | 2022StateFL (Tampa Catholic)

Tampa Catholic has a very talented young nucleus of talent. In all honesty, this is the deepest team I’ve seen from the Crusaders in a long time, even deeper than the previous senior heavy groups that featured the likes of Kevin Knox, Thomas Dziagwa, Kobe KnoxKobeKnox6'4" | CGTampa Catholic | 2020StateFL, Alijah HarrisonAlijahHarrison6'6" | CGTampa Catholic | 2020StateFL and others.
