When Fannett-Metal's Mikell McGee and Southern Fulton's Dylan Gordon began their high school boys basketball careers four years ago, they did it in a big way - claiming starting positions on their teams from the get-go.
They also finished them in style.
It was announced Friday that both players were named to the 2016-17 Pennsylvania Sports Writers All-State team as Second Team picks in Class 1A.
McGee, a 5-foot-9 guard, scored 25.9 points per game this season and set a school single-game record for points in a game with 55. He also added 82 assists.
For his career, McGee poured in 1,921 points, the most for a boy at Fannett-Metal and behind only Heidi Babb, and second all-time to only Scotland School's Chuck Davis among area boys players. It is McGee's first appearance on the all-state team.
Gordon piled up 1,649 points in his career, which was the most in Southern Fulton's history, and ranks as No. 5 in the Franklin-Fulton scoring annals.
He averaged 20.0 points - hitting 54 percent of his shots from the field - and 9.0 rebounds per game this season and led the Indians to a 19-6 record and a berth in the PIAA playoffs. Gordon was an All-State Third Team selection last year.
