DMV’s Best & Brightest Make High School Selections
One of the most exciting times for area players and parents in the realization of a goal; the natural progression for the elite level middle school player is the migration to the high school level – the players listed below have all excelled at the middle school and are now enjoying the fruits of their labor with their acceptance and selection to high school programs.
Remembering that success is not only defined on the basketball court but also in the classroom, the programs listed below denote not only high athletics standards, but also academics prowess. These players were not only selected for their basketball ability but had to go through a battery of test and review that included a review of their academic history and transcripts. For younger players who dream of playing at some of the institutions listed below; remember that academics always come first.
This is simply another step in the process of the ultimate goal of obtaining a free education at the college level. Whereas this is a tremendous mile stone that we all must pause for and congratulate - the road only get tougher the work harder. All players must stay in the gym as the game and level of play will continue to become more challenging.
Many players will develop at the high school level that are not listed below and the inclusion or non-inclusion does not have any guarantee on future success or failure. In the end all players are winners simply for playing the game.
Yet there is one indicator for the detractors of player rankings and evaluations and that is the documented track record provided by those that provide player analysis for DMV Preps. Using the current freshman class of 2018 please be advised that out the Top 30 Players listed over 70% played and competed on the varsity level as freshmen. Not matter your position on the validity of play rankings – a 70% accuracy rate which we anticipate to improve upon in the class of 2019 can’t be debated.
On behalf of DMV Preps our entire staff wishes to congratulate and wish the best to the entire 8th grade class of 2019 – remembering always that it is never where you start but always where you finish. Top players keep working and those wishing to reach the top keep working; your biggest dreams will always be within your grasp!
