McDONALD’S UNVEILS FINAL ROSTERS OF 2021 ALL AMERICANS The Final 48 Cement Legacy Among Basketball Greats
Chicago, Ill. (Feb. 23, 2021) – The McDonald’s All American Games is the pinnacle of high school basketball. Each year ushers a new group of young players into a club of legendary athletes, many of whom are known by a single name: Shaq, Lebron, Candace, A’ja. Continuing a decades-long tradition of celebrating the next generation of basketball greats, McDonald’s today announced the final rosters for the 2021 McDonald’s All American Games teams.
From lockdown defenders to three-point specialists, these 48 high school seniors – comprising the top 24 girls and 24 boys in the country – were selected by a committee of basketball experts from more than 700 nominated players. While the top high school talent won’t face off on the court this year due to COVID-19, a virtual celebration is being planned to give these incredible student-athletes the shine they deserve for their accomplishments and dedication to basketball.
“These young men and women are so special and have accomplished remarkable feats over the past four years,” said Joe Wootten, McDonald’s All American Games Selection Committee Chairman. “It is our honor to continue investing in and supporting the next generation of basketball stars.”
“We are proud of this incredible group of student-athletes for all they have achieved, both on and off the court,” said Joe Erlinger, President, McDonald’s USA. “On behalf of McDonald’s, I’d like to congratulate the class of 2021 as they carry on the storied legacy of the Games. We are thrilled to celebrate them as McDonald’s All Americans.”
Congratulations, Kobe Bufkin!!!!
