Seniors Denver Anglin and Drew Kania joined 760 other girls and boys basketball players from across the country as final nominees for the 45th annual McDonald’s All American Games.
After a two-year absence due to Covid-19, the national showcase is expected to return this March as the country’s top high schoolers go head-to-head at Wintrust Arena in Chicago. Denver, Drew, and the other new class of nominees have an opportunity to join an incredible list of athletes who have played in the competition—including Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Candace Parker, Maya Moore, and many others.
Guard Anglin, a four-year starter and Georgetown-commit, has started the year off strong averaging 17 points per game in his last three starts while leading the team in steals. 6’8” Forward Kania, who will continue career at Brown University in the fall, continues to work himself back from injury.
Players were nominated by either a high school coach, athletic director, principal or member of the McDonald’s All American Games Selection Committee. This year’s nominees spanned 41 states and the District of Columbia. A complete list of 2022 McDonald’s All American Games Nominees is available at mcdaag.com.
