Below are our FAB15 all-star teams, along with the NEXT12 (Honorable Mention) and FUTURES (Up-and-Coming Freshmen and Sophomores). The lists are alphabetical after Players-of-the-Year.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
6’3″ Sr. G., Central Dauphin
Smith was the leader and high scorer on one of the Mid-Penn Conference’s best teams, who were loaded with offensive-minded players. He joined his school’s 1,000 point club in ’20-’21. His selflessness, on and off the court, allowed for his teammates to mature a great deal around him this season. Smith has chosen to play his college ball at Pitt-Johnstown.
6’4″ Jr. F., Middletown
One of Central PA’s top multi-sport athletes, Broadie helped lead his Blue Raiders team to Mid-Penn Capital division and District-3 class 4A championships. He finished as the area’s #4 rebounder, and was near the top in both points scored and blocked shots. Just a junior, Broadie has already collected a boatload of Division-1 football offers.
6’7″ Sr. F., Susquehanna
Third in scoring, ninth in rebounds, and fifth in blocked shots, Coleman was a leading presence on an Indians team who returned to the District-3 semifinals for the first time in years. Along with teammate Michael Marable (listed below), he was part of one of the top guard/forward one-two punches in the midstate.
6’3″ Jr. G., Bishop McDevitt
Elliot burst onto the scene last year as a junior, and makes a second appearance on our FAB15 first team. An injury early this season took some production numbers away, but he was able to return in time to help lead his young Crusaders team to a strong finish. .
5’10” Sr. G., Lower Dauphin.
Gardner was one of the area’s top guards, finishing near the top in points, assists, and steals. But it was his contribution towards winning that spoke loudest. His Falcons team won both the Mid-Penn Keystone division and the District-3 class 5A tournament, with him running the show on offense.
6’7″ Sr. G/F., Lower Dauphin
One of the area’s top big men, Gibbs helped to put his school’s program back into the spotlight after a .500 ’19-’20 campaign. He finished #1 in the area in rebounds, top-10 in blocks, and top-15 in scoring. But the biggest contribution came in the District-3 championship game victory, where he scored 15 of his team’s 24 points.
6’4″ Sr. F., Central Dauphin
On a team full of star power, Haggans was the blue-collar guy. One of the area’s top players in both rebounding and blocked shots production, he was a leader on the court and in the locker room. He graduates with back-to-back Mid-Penn Commonwealth division titles on his resume, along with a ’19-’20 Mid-Penn Conference league title.
6’8″ Jr. F., Central Dauphin
Already a presence as a sophomore at C.D. in ’19-’20, Hill’s game grew by leaps and bounds…and points and rebounds…in ’20-’21. He averaged 12 points per game in an offense which featured two more of the area’s top scorers. He was also top-10 in both rebounds and blocked shots. Look for Hill to vie for FAB15 Player Of The Year honors in the ’21-’22 season.
6’9″ Jr. C., Cedar Cliff
Top-15 in our selection area in scoring, rebounds, and blocked shots this season, Houser has a presence around the basket that we don’t see too often these days. Along with Hill, we expect Houser to be one of the area’s top players in ’21-’22..
6’3″ Sr. G., Susquehanna Twp.
On a team who lost a lot of production to graduation after the ’19-’20 season, Marable’s contributions allowed his Indians to finish second in a competitive Mid-Penn Capital Division, and then top-4 in District-3’s class 4A. He was #8 in the area in scoring, #6 in assists, #5 in steals, and top-15 in both rebounds and steals.
6’3″ Sr. G., Hershey
The Mid-Penn Conference’s top scorer, Mascari eclipsed the 1,000 career points mark this season, and moved into 3rd all-time at his school. But it didn’t stop there Mascari finished 3rd in the area in three-pointers, 7th in assists and steals, and 8th in rebounds. He also helped his Trojans team get back to winning ways.
5’11” Sr. G., Harrisburg
In a season full of challenges for the Cougars, two-sport star McNeil was one of the brighter spots. After a solid football season as his school’s starting quarterback, he transitioned into a leader on the hardwood. McNeil will go down as one of Harrisburg’s all-time top athletes.
6’6″ Jr. F., Mechanicsburg
Another one of Central PA’s top two-sport athletes, college football coaches being hot on his heels with offers did not keep Morris from excelling on the basketball court this season as well. He finished 2nd in rebounds, 6th in blocked shots, top-10 in scoring, and was even amongst the tops in the area in assists. Not bad for a 6’6″ guy!
6’5″ Fr. G., Central Dauphin
Here’s a player who entered his high school basketball career with a lot of buzz and high expectations, and he delivered. Palmer has the size to play all five positions, the athleticism to run in the open court, great shooting range, and the defensive skills to cover the opponent’s top scorer. All this and just a freshman. Look at Palmer to become one of the all-time greats ever to come out of the mid-state, or quite possibly even more.
6’9″ Sr. G/F., Cumberland Valley
With the size of most high school centers, Sherry brings the shooting prowess to contribute from around the basket or beyond the arc. He finished near the top in the area in points, rebounds, blocked shots, and three-pointers, and will continue his basketball career at Division-1 Elon.
