In this preview you will find information on Oak Park's Boy's Basketball Team and their summer plans.
Oak Park finished 4th in the OAA Red Division (Top Division) in 2020-2021. They return three starters from last years team. One of those starters, Ashton Henderson (@workoutash1), was named OAA All-League after a stellar Junior season. Ashton is getting interest from several D1 schools and playing with The Family in July. The other two returning starters are: Bwana "Boe" Miller (@Only1BoeMiller) and Derald Blackmon Jr. (@DeraldBJr). Miller is a 6'0 guard who shoots the ball very well and is good defensively on the ball. Boe will be playing with REACH Legends Elite in July. Blackmon is a 6'5 forward and very athletic, one of the top bouncy players in the state. Derald will be running with the Motorcity Chargers during July.
