The Panthers of St. Paul VI make their first appearance in the `Iolani Classic in 2021. Helmed by Head Coach Glenn Farello (24 seasons) St. Paul VI are the defending Virginia State Champions and finished the year ranked 20th nationally. The Panthers are led by Dug McDaniel (Michigan commit) along with junior guard DeShawn Harris, and sophomore guards, Darren Harris and Ben Hammond. Junior guard Justin Boggs and Brendan Robinson along with freshmen Christian Gurdak and Jaquan Womack will be counted on to make an impact.

Coach Farello and St. Paul VI are ready for their season. “We hope to challenge for the WCAC Conference Championship and a Virginia State Championship. Our ultimate goal every year is to maximize our potential as a team. We want our guys to learn how to fight for each other every day!”
