Re: DC Metro Area Discussion - 2020-2021

I’d like to give some of my thoughts about the DMV circuit next year: National Contenders TJ A I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that TJ will be the #1 team in the country (especially on mACF), given that they have an argument to having the best science and literature coverage in the country. TJ’s...

Re: 2019-20 Groger Ranks Player Poll

Uh yeah, so here's another few players you might want to consider: Arthur Delot-Vilain has been hugely shadowed by my #1 player in the country, Matthew Siff, consistently throughout the season, but he is a budding generalist in his own, with deep knowledge in history (See his really strong A Set Bee...

Re: DC Metro End-of-Season Individual Poll

Thank you Justin for doing this. First I'd like to shill a few people who deserve to be on the Top 10. Matt Siff, no doubt, 100% is the man at #1. Katherine Lei is not only arguably the best science player in the country, but she has evolved into some humanities areas such as lit and fine arts, wher...

Re: DC Metro Area Discussion - 2019-2020

Matt’s commentary of the teams for next year was spot-on! Although the region will be losing a lot of talent (Anson, Olivia, Daniel, Ian, Dan among others) I believe that this year’s field is extremely competitive as well. A few words from me: 1. GDS is going to be VERY, VERY good next season and I ...
