Grant Jerrett named McDonald's A.A.
By Blair Angulo
The two-year drought is over.
La Verne Lutheran forward Grant Jerrett was named to the prestigious McDonald's All-American game on Thursday, becoming the first player from California to be honored since 2009 when four locals were named to the west roster. Jerrett, an Arizona signee, is the state's only representative this year.
"I feel honored and blessed to be able to play in this game," said Jerrett, who is averaging 24 points and 11 rebounds for back-to-back state champion Lutheran.
This year's game will be televised live by ESPN on March 28 at 6:30 p.m. PT from the United Center in Chicago.
