    Boys’ Players to Watch

    Marco Coppola, Watertown: The Red Raiders’ senior sharpshooter tapped off the season with a 29-point effort against Burlington.

    Kyle Gibson, Franklin: The 6-foot-3 senior forward led the Hockomock League in scoring last season (18.2 points per game).

    Alex Murphy, St. Mark’s: The highly skilled 6-8 junior forward is receiving interest from major Division 1 collegiate programs across the country.

    Richard Rodgers, St. John’s: The athletic 6-foot-4, 230-pound senior is headed to Cal to play football, but first he’ll help the Pioneers shoot for their third straight state final.

    Wes Schroll, Acton-Boxborough Regional: The 6-foot-3 senior returns after netting a team-leading 16.1 points per game last season and sharing MVP honors in the Dual County League.

    John Swords, Lincoln-Sudbury Regional: As a junior playing his first varsity season last winter, the 7-footer averaged a double-double for the Warriors.

    Kaleb Tarczewski, St. Mark’s: The 7-foot junior from Claremont, N.H., has burst onto the prep scene with his athleticism and ability to finish. He has already attracted interest from Duke and North Carolina, among others.

    Michael Thorpe, Newton North: The junior point guard (13.8 points per game last season) will need to step up as a scorer with senior forward Tevin Falzon sidelined.

    Boys’ Teams to Watch

    Acton-Boxborough Regional: Sam Longwell and Wes Scholl form a dynamic backcourt, and 6-foot-6 junior Kevin LaFrancis is a presence inside for a squad that reached the Division 1 North semifinals last year.

    Franklin: Senior guard Tyler Kessler and center Kyle Gibson are a nice 1-2 punch for the Panthers.

    Lexington: Reggie Hobbs takes over for Bob Farias on the bench and has a pair of talented juniors in forward Chris Lee and guard Chris O’Keefe.

    Lincoln-Sudbury Regional: John Swords will attract plenty of attention in the paint, and senior guard Mitch Perez is a major threat from the perimeter.

    Newton North: The Tigers await the return of their talented big man, 6-8 Tevin Falzon, out until next month with a wrist injury.
