St. Johnsbury Academy senior Tony Orciari was recently nominated to the 1997 McDonald's All-American High School Basketball Team.
Orciari was one of 1,500 high school basketball players nationwide to be nominated. From that field, 20 athletes will be chosen by the McDonald's All-American Basketball Selection Committee, a group of nationally prominent basketball experts. As a nominee who has displayed hard work, skill and teamwork, Orciari will be automatically considered for selection to the prestigious team.
The team will be named soon, and the 1997 All-American Game will be held March 29 in Colorado Springs.
