Alex Sherwood had a breakout summer playing with the Wisconsin Blizzard and has continued that up during his sophomore season with Xavier High School. While only a sophomore, the 6’6” forward is averaging a double-double this season with 18.4 points and 12.9 rebounds to go along with 2.1 blocks and 1.9 assists per game currently. 

Behind Sherwood, Xavier holds a 5-4 record on the season. “So far this season has been really fun with the new role I have taken with this great team. We still have a ton of work to get where this team wants to go, but I have no doubt that we will get there,” Sherwood commented on how this season is going. He added in “I’m grateful that we are able to still have a season with all that is going on in the world right now.” 

When talking about his own personal success he has had on the court this high school season, Sherwood stated “It feels great to go out there and have some higher scoring nights to give my team a better chance of winning. However, I feel strongly that I’m really just scratching the surface and can impact the game even more this second half of the season.” 

Sherwood is a lengthy 6’6” wing forward with a versatile skill set. He has the ability to score around the paint but can just as easily step out and knock down the three. On the defensive end, he can protect the paint but also has the mobility to defend out on the perimeter. A couple things Sherwood would like to improve upon is his strength and ball handling. 

With all his success on the hardwood, Sherwood has just started to gain some college coaches interest but “nothing solid yet,” he mentioned. He added in on his recruitment “I will continue to work hard in hopes of getting on coach’s radars.
