Most of Matoaca’s offense this year centered around senior guard Terrence Whitfield. Whitfield scored at will this season putting up around 27 points per games, as opposing defenders just could not slow him down.
The 6-3, 185-pound guard received first team All-Conference and second team All-Metro honors last season, causing colleges to take notice. West Virginia Wesleyan and Virginia Union extended him offers, but ultimately Whitfield choose to continue his career at Massanutten.
“When I went up to Massanutten for a visit and to play pick up with the team, I really fell in love with basketball program. I thought Massanutten was a great place where I can play basketball and focus on academics.
Coach Sowers and Coach Myers really made me feel like family when I went up to Massanutten. I really think I will accomplish big things and also improve in my academics.”
Former Chesterfield players Charles Falden from L.C. Bird and Corey Hill from Prince George committed there last year. Frank Mason, the Kansas star, also attended Massanutten.
Whitfield expressed excitement about adding his name to that star packed list and expressed that it would’ve have been possible without the help of his family and coaches.
“My family and coaches told me that I have a bright future and that great things will happen, so that helped a lot,” explained Whitfield.
Former L.C. Bird star Tahkey Williams is set to move on to Bluefield after a year of prep at Liberty Heights.
This season, The Liberty Height’s forward averaged 8 points and 5 rebounds per game as he continued to develop his skill set.
The 6-6, 205-pound forward has the size and athleticism to wreak havoc on opponents on both the offensive and defensive ends. Williams recently decided that Bluefield is the next step in his basketball and academic career
“I like the things you can major in there.” said Williams. “Also, the coaching staff is willing to work with you and make you better.”
Williams also expressed confidence in his abilities on the court, as he knows exactly what he brings to the table.
“Bluefield is getting a versatile and skilled player, who’s a great defender, good shooter, and a smart athlete,” explained Williams.
