Boys Basketball Team
13 of the best ballers in the Central Region.
Player of the year
** Travis McKie, John Marshall, 6-7, Sr.: I’ve written enough about him to fill a book. You know it all. He’s signed with Wake Forest, see his highlight video here.
Chris Cook, Lee-Davis, 5-10, Sr.: The best player you probably haven’t heard about. Put in 17 points per game last season.
Greg Lewis, Hanover, 6-0, Jr.: Smooth player who will be the focal point for defenses this season. Three-year varsity starter.
Tahir Little, John Marshall, 5-10, Jr.: The speedy point guard has a full year to run the show for the Justices.
Ken Pankey, L.C. Bird, 6-0, Sr.: One of the top shooters in the area, bar none.
Andrew Simmons, Meadowbrook, 6-0, Sr.: Four-year varsity starter looking for big year.
Kris Walden, Henrico, 6-0, Jr.: With Trey Davis and Justin Coleman departed, look for Walden to step up his offensive production.
Sean Armstrong, Monacan, 6-5, Sr.: Athletic player is one of the best the Dominion District is returning.
Pedro Berrios, Hopewell, 6-4, Jr.: Steady, heady player with a lot of skills. Good shooter and passer.
Du’Vaughn Maxwell, Petersburg, 6-5, Sr.: With three terrific seniors gone, Maxwell is one of the main cogs back. Averaged 11 points and six boards as a junior.
* David Robinson, Cosby, 6-4, Sr.: Defending Dominion District player of the year lights up scoring columns; 22 points per game last season. Headed to Longwood.
Andrew White, Thomas Dale, 6-5, Jr.: White’s versatility and open floor ability is a problem for opponents. Look for a much more explosive finisher at the rim.
Matt Gorski, Cosby, 6-11, Jr.: Put in 12 a game as a soph. Light years better than his freshman season. Brother Nick is a freshman, and already 6-6.
* – Was an all-DigitalSports pick in ’08-’09.
** – Two-time all-DigitalSports selection.
Note: Private school players are not eligible. Benedictine’s Michael Gbinije and Trey Davis, and Collegiate’s Jake McGee, all Division I recruits, would all be on this team.
