Four Montgomery County boys’ basketball standouts have been selected to participate in the 42nd annual Capital Classic High School All-Star Game Friday in the nation’s capital.
Richard Montgomery senior Nick Jackson is among a group of four county student-athletes that will suit up in the Capital Classic preliminary game at Catholic University’s DuFour Center in Washington, D.C.
The preliminary game is scheduled to tip-off at 6 p.m. followed by the main event at 8 p.m.
“I’m excited to play in the Capital Classic,” said Jackson, who helped guide Richard Montgomery to a 22-2 record and the 4A South Division championship. “I consider it an honor that I was one of the select few in the entire D.C. metro area selected to play. Being able to participate means a lot because it gives me an opportunity to represent my school and its community.”
Jackson will be joined on the Northern Virginia/Montgomery County All-Star roster by Magruder’s Joe Hugley, Gaithersburg’s Anthony Tarke and Springbrook’s Donovan Walker.
“Those are guys I’ve played with for a few years now,” said Jackson, who has committed to play at Widener University next season.
Hugley recently committed to Robert Morris University while Tarke and Walker have yet to announce their college plans.
The Northern Virginia/Montgomery County All-Stars will compete against a team comprised of players from D.C. and Prince George’s County.
