There were flashes all fall long of emerging play from Aaron Clark. On Saturday, he shined the brightest in a back-and-forth tilt against Santa Fe Catholic. With 30 points (21 in the second half), Clark was hitting jumpers often and getting to the free throw with his aggressive play. He is tapping into his true upside.

2023 6-0 G Aaron Barton – Southeast

The leading overall scorer in the fall league, Aaron Barton capped off the 10-week stretch with a rock-solid 22-point outing in a loss to Northside Christian. The bonafide leader of this group, he gets up and down the floor in transition with ease and loves to absorb contact at the point of attack. Barton finished up the fall league with a 24.6 PPG average.

2024 6-0 G Daniel MacGregor – Calvary Christian

Calvary Christian was back to full health this week. It held off a scrappy Sumner group in the final game of the day as 2024 pair, 6-6 guard/forward Ace Taylor (17 points) and 6-0 guard Daniel MacGregor (16 points) were in sync. Taylor did his usual drives inside and his length his hard to contain. MacGregor is a tough-nosed point man who never shies away from pressure. MacGregor led his side with an 18.4 PPG average in nine fall league matchups.

2023 6-2 G Tobias Gunter – Northside Christian

Speed, strength and athleticism continued to be the top attributes for Tobias Gunter. He is really taking the next step forward heading into his senior campaign and it shows. Gunter dropped 22 points, leading his side in a win over Southeast. 2023 5-11 guard Skyler Scull (14 points) is a grinder out of the backcourt, a very sound lead ballhandler and finisher.

2025 6-0 G Tate Darner – Santa Fe Catholic

Fresh off earning his first offer from Division I Youngstown State, Tate Darner shined on Saturday. He finished with a team-high 20 points in a victory over Bradenton Christian. Most impressively, it was his 13 points in the second half that sealed the win. Darner is in for a major breakout sophomore season alongside a quick pace group.

2024 7-6 C Olivier Rioux – IMG National Spotlight Blue

The St. Pete crowd was not used to seeing someone as tall as Olivier Rioux. At 7-foot-6, he is quite long to see if you haven’t prior. He got to work straight from the opening whistle, winning the opening tip and leading his group with 16 points. Rioux’s footwork and inside dribbling ability have improved. His upside is clear at his size.

—2026 6-10 center Tim Winkler Jr. was equally as impressive for IMG with an 11-point performance. He has a good jumper and his size hurts defenders on both ends of the floor. The Illinois native is just scratching the surface. His offer list includes Western Kentucky, Nevada and Arizona State.

2024 5-11 Kaleb Oriol – Admiral Farragut

Admiral Farragut has a seasoned coach in place and it is really helping this young group’s chemistry. 2024 5-11 guard Kaleb Oriol (20 points) and 2025 6-1 guard Talon Brooks (17 points) played well off of one another and found openings to hit key 3’s and mid-range jumpers.

2024 6-2 Adrian Moore – Largo

In his first game this fall with Largo, Adrian Moore made an instant impact and looked back to full health. He netted 18 points and was aggressive all game long against Countryside. Moore is a strong guard who gets everyone around him involved.

2025 6-2 Caleb Williams – Sumner

Sumner made its fall league debut on Saturday and it was Caleb Williams who really put the pressure on its opponent. Scoring 15 points (11 in the second half), he looked the part with his high IQ play and overall shooting ability. 2023 6-0 guard Josiah Harding (10 points) shined as well as an attacker.

2024 5-11 Brooks Duncan – Clearwater

Clearwater improved over the last few weeks and this young group will be just fine when the regular season rolls around. 2024 guard Brooks Duncan emerged this week as the leading scorer (16 points) with some strong takes to the rim. 2026 5-11 guard Geridan Jones (11 points) has flashed bright moments as a lead ballhandler and inside finisher all fall.
