  2. Thanks unc1dmo.


  3. I would love to see a list of the All met teams from the 50’s-00 as well as All Inter High from 50’s-00

    • Mike- the All-Met teams are on our website, DCBasketball.com. All-Interhigh squads are linked on this page.

      Thanks for hanging out here.


  4. does anyone have access to the all- interhigh teams from the 50s and 60s. the all-met teams are nice, but there were some really good players in the interhigh and catholic schools that didn’t make all-met.

    i also noticed (it appears) that prior to 1954, there were all-high and later, all catholic teams. 1954-55 or so brought in all-met. i could be wrong, but didn’t recognize many (any?) names of black players until elgin baylor.

    • Dave-

      Thanks for visiting the site. Elgin was the first Negro boy named Washington Post All-Met in basketball. As for the All-Interhigh lists, there’s a link sidebar on our blog (with “Post” and “Star” listings).


  5. Kenny Carr, DeMatha 1974 was first team Parade All-American.
