Marshall County High School senior Zion Harmon is among the top basketball talent in the nation nominated for the 44th annual McDonald’s All American Games teams. Harmon was nominated as one of more than 700 top girls and boys high school seniors from across the country.
“It is wonderful to see such outstanding local talent recognized nationally,” said Michael Love, local McDonald’s owner and operator. “We are thrilled that Zion is representing the Benton community as a nominee for the 2021 McDonald’s All American Games final roster.”
This year’s talent is spread coast-to-coast, with nominees representing 44 states and the District of Columbia. High school players from Texas received the most nominations (87), followed by Florida (58) and California (57). Alumni of the nation’s premier high school basketball showcase include Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Zion Williamson, Maya Moore, Candace Parker, A’ja Wilson and many more.
In keeping with the storied tradition, the final team roster of 48 players will be named later this month. McDonald’s made the difficult decision to forego in-person games after consulting with health and safety experts and will honor the 2021 class through a virtual celebration.
