No Washington players in 2014 McDonald’s All-American Game

There will be no representatives from the state of Washington in this year’s McDonald’s All-American Game. The prestigious game will take place on April 2 at the United Center in Chicago.

There were 24 boys and 24 girls selected for the all-star event out of a pool of more than 1,000 nominees.

It’s a bit surprising that no one from Washington was selected, especially considering the hotbed that the greater Seattle area has become for basketball talent. It’s also surprising considering that Rainier Beach, as high as No. 2 in national rankings, is a championship contender. The Vikings had two nominees, Shaqquan Aaron and David Crisp. Rainier Beach has played (and beat) two players on the roster, Romelo Trimble (Bishop O’Connell, Va.) and Jahlil Okafor (Whitney Young, Ill.).

Reigning Washington Gatorade Player of the Year, Jason Todd, was also nominated.

Those are just a few examples of the long list of players from Washington that were nominated. Here is the list of all 45 in its entirety.
