3 DME Hoopers Nominated For McDonald’s All American Game

Amiya Evans, Sydney Shaw, and Niccolo Moretti were nominated to compete on the biggest stage in high school hoops, the McDonald’s All American Game. The three DME seniors each competed for 1 of 24 respective roster spots against a pool of over 760 players from across the country.

"It has been a pleasure to coach and work with this team, specifically Amiya and Sydney,” said Wesley Arocho, Head Coach of the girls program. “What an honor for these two young ladies to even be considered for such a prestigious opportunity. They both deserved to be considered in elite company as candidates for the McDonald's All American Game." The pair of hoopers are both DI bound next fall, as Amiya has committed to the University of Central Florida, while Sydney has committed to Auburn University.

“We’re extremely proud of Niccolo for receiving a nomination,” said Matt Panaggio, Head Coach of the boy’s team. “The roster for the 2022 McDonald’s All American Game is loaded with talent, and it’s a great honor to be in the same conversation as those student athletes.” The 6’2 point guard joined the squad at DME Academy after a run with Italy’s Edilnol Biella professional team. His nomination for the game is another feather in his cap as he gears up to make his next move.

DME Academy has quickly asserted itself as a premier program in the high school basketball landscape, and these three nominations are a major testament to each program’s strength.
