York-Adams basketball players Eli Brooks and Madey-Zania Redman have been nominated to play in the 2017 McDonald's All-American Game.
More than 720 high school seniors have been nominated in the games, according to a press release. This year's list includes players from 45 states, who have been selected by high school coaches, athletic directors, principals and members of the McDonald's All-American Games Selection Committee.
The games will be March 29 in Chicago's United Center and will be televised live on ESPN2.
Brooks, a point guard for the Spring Grove High School boys' program, is arguably the YAIAA's top player. He leads the 7-3 Rockets with 27.4 points per game, 13.8 rebounds per game and 4.9 assists per contest. He's committed to play next year at the University of Michigan.
Redman, a guard for the William Penn High School girls' team, is committed to play college basketball next year at Lock Haven University. According to head coach Larry Corbin, the 5-foot-9 Redman is the team's primary point guard but plays all over the floor for the Bearcats — shooting guard, forward and center as well.
Other District 3 basketball players who have been nominated for the boys' game are Tyrece Little of CD East High School, and Chris Whitaker of Harrisburg High School.
