VASJ Vikings 2017-2018

Congratulations to VASJ Sr point guard Gene Higgins who just earned an offer to attend the US Military Academy at West Point, play DI basketball there, and serve his country. Gene is an incredible young man, both on and off the basketball court and football field. If Gene accepts the appointment, he will be the the 3rd VASJ Viking in the last 6 years (2012, 2016, and possibly 2018) to attend this prestigious institution. All Hail the Red, White, and Blue!

A little early, but what will VASJ look like next year. Who do they return?

Obviously the loss of Gaffney is huge but Sr point guard Gene Higgins (West Point recruit) is the straw that stirs the drink. The rest of the guys on varsity were reserve players and JV. Calhoun is a talented junior guard. Kopplemen will be tough as a 6'3" junior forward. The Priah boys will provide muscle down low. DiNunzio steps up as a 3pt guy. The height will come from a 6'7 and 6'6" soph and junior. Vikings should be competitive but not sure yet if they have enough to get past an always deep SVSM team. The freshman class should be very talented with a couple of guys getting varsity minutes later in the year.

I see them making it all the way to Canton however I don't think they'll have enough to get past an always tough St.V squad. I honestly hope they return to Columbus this year but the loss of Gaffney hurts big time.

They will tough again. Gaffney is a loss and his production will be replaced by a combination of players. The two tall player from the JV squad got taller and both will be over 6'6. Koppelman will replace Newlon as the 3 point shooter. The Vikings will be talented once again - but who other than Higgins will lead. Losing McGarry and Butler is HUGE. That leadership and grit in tough games will be missed. SVSM has some very good young talent if any of you Viking fans remember from the JV game. They will be a tough out. I like always expect Joe's to be Joe's.

VASJ will once again be a formidable opponent and moving to D2 presents one Big Hurdle-STVM. The young talent (2019 & 2020) at STVM is legit with more on the way in 2021 and 2022. Always a great matchup winner goes to Columbus.

Do you think LeBron is staying in cleveland after this next season? I know, off topic, but Lebron taking his family to LA will have its ramifications in the ohio high school basketball world.

There is some talent on that youth team Lebrons son plays on. You would think his kid would attend SVSM.
