Potomac Falls Basketball
By Kyle Gotimer
In the month of December, Potomac Falls High School junior center
Dondrea Tillman stepped up for his team as he registered, on average,
more than 12 points and 8 rebounds per game including a 16 point, 11
rebound double-double performance in round two of the #BattleofRoute7 game against Dominion High School on Dec. 16.
“He has really soft hands for a big man. He can shoot from 15-20 feet
and is a tremendous passer,” Potomac Falls head coach Jeff Hawes said.
“He owns the paint with his size and tenacity around the rim. He is
averaging close to a double-double and is one of the best post players
in Conference 14.”
Tillman has a great work ethic, and it shows in his performance on
and off the court. His awareness on the court is complimented by his
counterpart, senior forward Wanya Allen. Tillman and Allen having been
playing together since they were little and use their experience
together as an advantage in their high school season.
“[Tillman] works really hard everyday. He has tremendously improved
since last year. He never ‘takes a day off’ in practice and his court
awareness has improved two fold,” Hawes said.
Tillman and the Panthers begin conference play on Jan. 10 with a game against Freedom High School.
