H.D. Woodson senior Antwan Walker stepped out of the rental car last April and was star-struck. Duke men’s basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski walked past him in the parking lot just days after leading the Blue Devils to the 2015 national championship.

Walker and Woodson boys’ basketball Coach Trey Mines had trekked to the Dallas suburbs so Walker could play in his first national event at a shoe-sponsored tournament with a Richmond-based AAU team. The slender 6-foot-7 star had just been named D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Association player of the year after leading the Warriors to their first league title, but Mines kept reminding him “nobody knows you still.”
