2014 McDonald’s All-American Games nominees

The nominees for the McDonald’s All-American Game have been released and the list of players in the state of Washington is quite long.

The game, which is to be played on April 3 at the United Center in Chicago, is a prestigious event that will take place for the 37th year (13th on the girls side). The first name on the list (it is alphabetical) might be the most recognizable — Shaqquan Aaron. The Louisville commit is joined as a nominee by teammate David Crisp. Jackson teammates Jason Todd and Dan Kingma are also included as nominees. Kingma’s twin sister Kelli is also nominated.

One of the key omissions is Garfield guard Tramaine Isabell. The Washington State commit is a quick guard that scored 47 points earlier this season and is averaging 21.5 per game.

Isabell’s teammate Brayon Blake is nominated, although he is one of the players with their information not updated. The official release has Blake’s school as Federal Way. It also has Crisp’s school as Clover Park.

One name you might not recognize on the list is St. George’s Dexter Sienko. I had the chance to watch Sienko play in the State B tournament in Spokane last year and came away impressed. Yes, he wasn’t playing against the top talent in the state, but he was big, athletic and had a knack for scoring. He also did this.
