This sport is always on my mind.

“Kings of The Hill” (Oak Hill)

For what has seemed like generations the top high school players have attented Oak Hill Academy. You don’t believe me? Look at these great players who have attended: Rajon Rondo, Josh Smith, Brandon Jennings, Carmelo Anthony, and Jerry Stackhouse. Oak Hill sure is “at the top of the hill” in high school basketball.

How could there be so many good players coming out of this school? They don’t come from the school directly. Melo grew up in Baltimore, Brandon grew up in L.A., and Josh grew up in Atlanta alongside Dwight Howard. What makes the “Hill” such a great place? Its basketball history. Who wouldn’t wanna go to a school Carmelo Anthony attended? These alumni and the famous coaches make Oak Hill a basketball destination.

  1. At one point, there were better players coming from Oak Hill than anywhere else.

    • Yeah, there was, but now more players are trying to put their school or homecourt on the map.

  2. I live in Virginia and have driven by Oak Hill a few times. It is in the middle of absolutely nowhere, cell phone service is extremely spotty at best. It’s just down the road from Grayson Highlands State Park – a totally beautiful and quiet place. There are no distractions and no way these kids can get into any trouble – except on their travels to different schools.
