Two of the area's best were officially nominated Thursday for the McDonald's All American games.

Trinity boys senior center Sean Good, a Lafayette commit was one of two Mid-Penn talents to get nominated. The other was Steel-High's Timothy Kater. 

And then there was Camp Hill senior guard Diamond Bragg. The Wisconsin commit joined CD East's Tiara Little as the Mid-Penn's two nominees this year.

It's been a banner week for Bragg, who just eclipsed 1,500 career points Tuesday. The dynamic scorer is averaging a Sentinel-area best 21.9 points per game and has the two-time defending District 3 champions Lions (9-3, 5-1 Capital) poised for another long postseason run.

The 6-foot-10 Good, meanwhile, is trying to lead the Shamrocks (9-2, 4-2 Capital) to a program-record fifth straight District 3 crown. The rim-protector leads Trinity with 12.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game.

He's approaching several career milestones himself. He currently has 808 points and should easily reach 1,000 this season. He also has 845 rebounds and 425 blocks, leaving him within reach of 1,000 boards and 500 stuffs at his current pace, assuming the Shamrocks make a deep postseason run as well.

The nominees, which numbers over 700, will be whittled down to 24 boys and 24 girls. That group will then play March 28 in the 41st annual McDonald's All American Games at the Philips Arena in Atlanta. The 48 athletes are selected by a committee.

The final rosters will be unveiled Tuesday.
