Introducing the YAIAA boys basketball all-stars, as selected by the staff.

Eli Brooks, Spring Grove, jr.

Brooks' list of accolades from this season is long. He led the Rockets to their first YAIAA title since 1971 and their first state playoff appearance while averaging a league-high 25 points and knocking down a league-best 79 3-pointers — 23 more than the next guy on the leaderboard. The junior holds 10 Division I scholarship offers.

Najah Fink, Dover, sr.

The senior big man came up 11 points shy of 1,000 for his career. He led the Eagles to a district playoff berth while averaging 19 points and 11.4 rebounds. Fink also shot 59 percent from the field and 71 percent from the free-throw line, which both ranked among the best for forwards.

Kyle Krout, Hanover, sr.

As the Nighthawks' go-to winger, Krout finished second in the league at just over 22 points per game. The Juniata College commit also finished Top 10 in 3-pointers made and Top 15 in free-throw percentage while he led Hanover to the district playoffs.

Montrel Morgan, William Penn, sr.

Morgan was a bright spot in an otherwise down year for the Bearcats. The senior guard, who averaged 14 points this season, finished his career as William Penn's all-time leading scorer, surpassing Bearcat great Kelvin Parker.

Broguen Nicholas, Eastern York, sr.

The Golden Knights returned to the state playoffs for the first time since 2011 after reaching the district finals in large part because of Nicholas' play. The senior averaged 17.6 points and finished fourth in the league with 53 3-pointers. Nicholas' combination of outside shooting and ability to get to the basket was a nightmare for defenders.

Kobi Nwandu, Northeastern, sr.

The ultra-athletic forward showed a knack for the highlight play, dunking on several opponents while averaging 17.4 points. The East Stroudsburg commit surpassed 1,000 career points this season while lifting Northeastern to a 21-3 record.

Jared Wagner, Central York, sr.

There might not have been a more polarizing or entertaining player to watch in the YAIAA this season. Wagner played to the crowd and pumped his chest, but he had every reason to. The York College commit was fifth in the league in scoring at just under 19 points and led the Panthers to a 23-5 record, a district championship appearance and a state playoff berth.

Kevin Schieler, Central York

When the Panthers lost four starters from a 20-10 team, most people expected them to take a step back this season. Most people were wrong. Schieler guided Central to a 23-5 record, a district championship appearance and a trip to states despite playing one of the toughest schedules in Class AAAA. What stood out was the Panthers' refusal to quit when they were down and their steady confidence.
