McDonald’s All-American Basketball Game Nominees:Several Boys from the Area have been nominated, Guilford County Girls shut out

Picking up the info by way of Brian Hall(WFMY News 2 Sports) on Twitter, and we find Cam Hayes(Greensboro Day School), Carson McCorkle(Greensboro Day School), Carson Lomax(Northern Guilford High School), Rashawn Pleasant(Northern Guilford High School) and Jake Ledbetter(Bishop McGuinness High School) have all been nominated for selection to play in the 2020 McDonald’s All-American Basketball game..

No Guilford County/Greensboro girls were nominated, but maybe next year we might see Diamond Monroe(Ragsdale High School), Mariah Frazier(Ragsdale High School), Hailey Blackwell(Greensboro Day School), Je’Bria Fullwood(Greensboro Day School), Caroline Wyrick(Greensboro Day School) or others among the nominees…
Sophomore Raven Preston, from Southeast Guilford HS, should be a very strong candidate, in two years from now.

Sort of thought we could see maybe Kennedi Simmons(Southeast Guilford High School) or maybe Reagan Kargo(Northwest Guilford HS), Thalia Carter(Northwest Guilford HS) or Megan Harkey(Northwest Guilford HS), all Guilford County seniors, thought we might see some of those young ladies on this year’s list of girls for nomination to the McDonald’s All-Star Basketball game…You have three girls nominated from Winston-Salem Christian and I don’t really understand that…Three girls from one team and from Winston-Salem Christian??? WS Christian is (23-2), but none of the girls on the McDonald’s list, Brown, Cowles and Williams are even listed on the WS Christian roster at MaxPreps, so it hard to find out much about those three…

On the boys end you would have thought that possibly Dean Reiber or Christian Hampton, from Northwest Guilford HS would have received a nomination, or maybe even Ahmil Flowers from Grimsley High School and for sure, what about Silas Mason and Nick McMullen from Smith High School???

Seems like N.C. State signee Cam Hayes, from Greensboro Day, has the best chance of landing a spot on the McDonald’s game-day roster, but we wish all of the young men the best of luck, while going for these lineup spots for the McDonald’s All-American Game…

Not sure of the late-season status for Carson McCorkle, from the Greensboro Day School, or when he is set to return from his knee injury….

It is almost time to get back to the Johnny Tart’s McDonald’s, and I still remember the night I was down at the Johnny Tart’s McDonald’s on MLK Blvd., and I got the word by way of my computer that P.J. Hairston, then from Hargrave Military Academy and formerly of Dudley HS, had been named to McDonald’s All-American game roster….

Last visit to Johnny Tart’s McDonald’s was last Friday, and for lunch had oatmeal, a sausage biscuit, and a hash brown…Not a bad change-of-pace for the lunchtime meal….
