The preseason kicked off last week and there were some impressive numbers put up by players who have not played much on the high school scene. In this article we look at some of these young players who will have huge impacts on their respective teams. Some will even determine how the district standings and playoff brackets shake out this season.
played very well last week and averaged 11.5 points per game. The freshman baller knocked down 5 three pointers in her first game last week. It’s still early, but Crawley appears to be that player who will fill the huge void left by Sophia Rueppell’s departure to college ball.
/ 6’0 PF / Ed White High School. White had a solid week in the preseason and is going to be a good one. White was solid against Ribault, one of the top teams on the First Coast. She rebounded well, handled the ball well, and showed the ability to take it coast to coast after securing the rebound. White attacks the rim with purpose and has no problem playing through physical contact. She is one of the top Freshman in the entire State and one of the top players on the First Coast.
played well in the paint and pulled down 9 rebounds in one of her games. She has a lot of quality basketball experience under her belt from travel ball and is used to stiff competition. She won’t be intimidated on the big stage. DesJarlais is one of the top young power forwards on the First Coast.
played very well in preseason week and she is going to be a very good player. She has speed, she can score on all levels, and can play very well on the defensive end, too. She was instrumental in a preseason victory over Ed White, scoring in the final seconds to help seal the victory.
played well and shot the ball well during last week’s preseason games. Goll can knock down the three at a very high rate. She stood out all summer shooting the three ball and it’s carrying over to this high school season. She can flat out shoot it and makes an already dangerous Bulldog team even more potent on the offensive end.
looks unstoppable on tape and had a very impressive preseason. She has been touted by many as the missing piece for the Bulldogs. She definitely gives the Bulldogs one of the most dominant bigs on the First Coast. She looked unstoppable in the paint on both sides of the rim. She has soft hands, very good footwork, and knows how to finish in the paint. McCoy is going to be a problem for a lot of teams.
