I have a player that will be in HS in a few years so just started keeping an eye on the Metro 3A league to get the lay of the land. Are the teams you list as strong generally where the select players go? Or are the coaches/training at these schools better that gives them an edge?
Hi Catcher--There is a vast extent of self selection in those schools, all of which are private except Bainbridge. Those teams in Metro (Prep, O'Dea, Eastside Catholic, Lakeside Academy) are able to perpetually reboot with good players who apply because they know they will get a good college prep academic experience and they will get to go to school with other motivated athletes. Each of those schools has good coaching in many sports, but they also get a nice critical mass of serious players every year to bring in and work through their programs. The public schools in Metro can't say the same.
