The 2021 Philadelphia Catholic League season was one of the most competitive in recent memory. 

Archbishop Wood won the league outright, going 14-0 in conference play, but the Vikings weren't the only team to impress this season in the PCL.

Prep Hoops is going to take a look at Archbishop Ryan, who despite coming up short against Archbishop Wood, made it to the PIAA 5A state title game last weekend, led by a group of strong sophomores who set itself apart during league play.

It started with senior small forward Aaron Lemon-Warren Aaron Lemon-Warren 6'4" | SF Archbishop Ryan | 2021 State PA , who averaged 18.9 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 2.5 APG and 1.5 SPG on nearly 54 percent shooting from the field and 36 percent from beyond the arc.

Lemon-Warren blossomed and shined in his senior season, showing an immense amount of veteran leadership and maturity in a starting role, and he looked increasingly comfortable shooting from beyond the arc.

Archbishop Ryan’s best three-point shooter, junior shooting guard Luke Boyd Luke Boyd CG Archbishop Ryan | 2022 State PA , shot 33.6 percent from three, hitting 37 on the season. Boyd averaged 10.2 PPG on the season, shooting just under 41 percent from the field and averaging 1.2 blocks a game.

Boyd has gotten much more opportunities
