Running the court with those No. 1 options will be a group of prospects who are not household names yet, but they will contribute for their varsity teams this winter and potentially play at the next level.
Today we want to highlight six of these Ches-Mont athletes so this winter when someone asks you, “What’s His Name?” you will know the answer.
Philly Pride Select / Small Forward: Chester is a super athletic prospect with excellent rim to rim speed. Thus, he thrives in the open court. He also produces points on mid-range jumpers, alley-oops and via the offensive glass. On defense, Chester is a shot blocking and rebounding phenom.The upside on this sophomore is tremendous.– 6’7” / 2026 / Coatesville /
Noah Griffin – 5’10” / 2024 / Sun Valley / Combo Guard: In addition to being a 1st Team All-Che-Mont basketball player, Griffin is an outstanding running back on the SV football team. So, you know he is athletic, fast, and elusive off the dribble. Griffin uses that trifecta to create scoring opportunities for himself and others. Plus, he can knock down jumpers at a high clip. Griffin also excels at using menacing on-ball defense to create easy baskets at the other end.
East Coast Power / Small Forward: Krupansky is a long athlete who owns a high basketball IQ and an intriguing offensive skill set. From the free throw line to the rim, he can score in a multitude of ways. Krupansky will even dial up a 3-ball on occasion. Krupansky has all the assets to be a solid stretch-4 by the end of the 2023-24 season. Krupansky is also a solid defender who can guard 2 through 5.– 6’5″ / 2025 / Downingtown East /
Philly Pride UAA / Power Forward: After spending the 2022-23 season with Bonner & Prendergast, Lamizana (7.6 ppg. & 6 rpg.) is back at Henderson and ready to dominate. He is an athletic and polished interior prospect with a constantly improving face-up game and a jumper that is effective out to seventeen feet. Lamizana’s ability to blow past his defender off one or two dribbles and then finish with authority will surprise opponents. Because he runs the floor well, Lamizana is also a solid secondary break option.– 6’6″ / 2024 / WC Henderson /
K-Low Elite / Small Forward: 2023-24 is going to be an All Ches-Mont League worthy season for this talented stretch-4 prospect. Last month’s 16 points and 8 rebounds performance against Bonner was a taste of things to come. Staz is too quick and skilled for opposing bigs to defend and he simply bullies any guard who chooses to switch on to him. His polished offensive game, rebounding skills and shot blocking abilities will enable Staz to stuff the stat book this winter. Once the season is over, the accolades and college offers will come rolling in for Staz.– 6’7″ / 2025 / Downingtown West /
Eastern PA Elite / Small Forward: Woodard possesses good footwork and understands how to gain positioning in the high / low post. So, he can score on quick post ups on the blocks or pick-n-roll action at the elbows. He can also step out to the arc and be a legitimate 3-point threat. If his ball handling develops, Woodard could develop into a stretch-4 at the next level. On defense Woodard is physical rebounder and provides rim protection too.– 6’5” / 2024 / Great Valley /
