Stuart Hall’s Armani Collins nominated for McDonald’s All-American game

Armani Collins of Stuart Hall has been nominated to play in the McDonald’s All-American high school boys’ basketball game.

The 6-foot-4 senior guard is the first player from his school to ever be nominated for the game and the only city player in the running to play in the prestigious all-star game April 1 at the United Center in Chicago.

Collins is one of 823 boys’ and girls’ players nominated for the showcase event. He will find out if he makes the 24-player roster on Jan. 28.

Collins, a four-year starter who has yet to commit to a college, is averaging 20.2 points and 6.2 rebounds per game for the Knights, who are 17-2 overall and 4-0 in the Bay Counties League West this season.

“The Schools of The Sacred Heart, specifically Convent & Stuart Hall High Schools are all very proud of Armani,” Charley Johnson, Stuart Hall’s coach and athletic director, said via email. “This is quite an accomplishment!”

Sacred Heart Cathedral’s Tierra Rogers, who played in the 2009 girls’ game,

is believed to be the only San Francisco player to ever play in the showcase. Stuart Hall’s next game is today when it travels to International for a 5:30 p.m. game.
