McDonald’s All American Selection Committee
Joey Simmons, founder of the Texas Elite adidas Basketball, has been on the McDonald’s selection committee for 6 years. Each year, McDonald’s selects 24 boys and 24 girls to play in the prestigious McDonald’s All American game. Players from each state are selected to be nominated for the team and then 100 players are chosen by the McDonalds board from the list of players from each state. Those 100 players are then sent to the selection committee that selects the top 50, then the top 40, then the final 24 players.
