HERE ARE THE NOMINEES

How does the team get selected? Let's go right to the source. Per the McDonald's All-American website

The Search Begins

The initial list of potential nominees is gathered online beginning in September. The practice of nominating players dates back to the first game in 1978. Currently, names are submitted by the following approved parties: 1. High School Coaches 2. High School Athletic Directors 3. High School Principals 4. McDonald’s All American Games Selection Committee Members There is no set number of how many high school senior players can be nominated throughout the country.

What Happens Next?

Once the nomination process closes on December 15, nominated players are reviewed for eligibility. Nominated players must be high school seniors having only participated in eight semesters of high school and in good academic standing. Nomination certificates of recognition are then mailed directly to the player’s region.

The Boys and Girls Team Selection Process

The voting process for the McDonald’s All American Games Teams involves the McDonald’s All American Games Selection Committee. The Selection Committee is comprised of some of the nation’s most knowledgeable high school analysts, prep scouts, high school newspaper reporters and prestigious basketball coaches. There are 34 Boys Selection Committee members and 23 Girls Selection Committee members. The Selection Committee is chaired by Coach Morgan Wootten, former coach of DeMatha High School in Hyattsville, Maryland. Coach Wootten won more than 1,200 games and won five national high school championships
