Freeman Is Met Player of the Year

The Washington Post has named Austin Freeman its Boy's Basketball Player of the Year. Here is what his blurb says:

Repeat All-Met led the Stags to the No. 1 ranking and a third consecutive Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title and City Title. Averaged 22.2 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Named a McDonald's all-American. Considered one of the best players in school history. Will play for Georgetown.

Wright, of course, stil recieved first team honors. He and Freeman were the only two juniors to make first team last year. This year there is only one junior on the list. Care to guess who? That's right, Georgetown-bound Jason Clark. Here are Wright's and Clark's write-ups and their photo (Clark is all the way on the left):

Chris Wright: First three-time All-Met in boys' basketball since Adrian Dantley (DeMatha, 1971-73). Scored 2,580 career points. Averaged 30.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 2006-07. Named McDonald's all-American. Will play for Georgetown.

Jason Clark: Poised to leave his mark as one of the area's top players. Terrific scorer averaged 21.6 points and six rebounds for Knights. Able to shoot from the outside or get to the basket. Committed to Georgetown.

Congratulations to Austin, Chris, and Jason! Can't wait to see you in blue & gray!
Obvious, as he did not play in the spring, Chris Braswell did not make the team. His innaction also has led to him dropping from a consensus top 20 recruit nationally to a top 50 recruit. But in a recent interview, he stated that he will return to Dematha and now has the proper academic focus. I hope he is back on track!
