Beaverton, OR – Now in its 16th year, the Jordan Brand Classic, presented by American Family Insurance, has announced the All-American Boys Team for this year’s game.The game will take place on Friday, April 14, 2017 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The 24 players selected will follow in the footsteps of some of the greatest in the game, including Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, LeBron James and Chris Paul. In celebration of their selection, each player will also be honored with a special ceremony in their respective hometowns through the second annual Senior Night Tour.

“We are thrilled to once again shine light on the next generation of basketball stars and give them the opportunity to play in a premium venue like Barclays Center,” said Larry Miller, President of Jordan Brand. “We appreciate the support of American Family Insurance, and share in its mission to recognize amateur athletes in their hometowns with the family and friends who helped them succeed.”

As part of this prestigious honor, Jordan Brand and American Family Insurance will tour the nation to recognize each athlete during his high school’s “Senior Night.” These high school career-culminating events will acknowledge each senior on the team and the people who helped them succeed on and off the court. To commemorate each Jordan Brand Classic All-American, a banner will be raised in the gymnasium recognizing this accomplishment.

“As a proud sponsor of the Jordan Brand Classic selection tour, we congratulate these fine student athletes who are pursuing their dreams,” said American Family Insurance Director of Advertising Dwayne Maddox.  “We know that behind every successful athlete is a team of parents, coaches, teachers and friends who have assisted along the way. We look forward to recognizing these important “dream champions” as we visit their local communities across the nation.”
