CLARION, Pa. – D9and10sports.com will be live broadcasting the inaugural Clarion County YMCA All-Star basketball game draft starting at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 17.
Twenty girls players representing 15 different District 9 and District 10 schools and 20 boys players representing 15 schools have been chosen to participate in the games, which are in their second year of existence as the Clarion County YMCA District 9 and District 10 High School All-Star Games. To be eligible for the game this year, a player had to play in either District 9 or for a District 10 school that was located in a county that also had a District 9 team.
While the players have been chosen, for the first time four captains (two girls and two boys) have been picked to pick the respective teams.
Warren’s Emman Ruhlman and Brockway’s Selena Buttery are serving as the girls’ captains, while Brookville’s Griffin Ruhlman and DuBois Central Catholic’s Alec Srock are the boys’ captains.
On the live draft, each captain will pick 10 players. The first pick will be determined by a coin toss.
The captains will be joined the D9and10Sports team, which was tasked by the Clarion County YMCA to choose the players for the game, remotely for the live draft, which will be live-streamed on D9and10Sports.com as well as its social media channels.
Here are the players who have been chosen to participate in the games, which will be played at 2 p.m. (girls) and 3:45 p.m. (boys) Sunday April 3 at the Clarion County YMCA.
