Torie Bass, a basketball player at Fountain-Fort Carson High School, has been nominated for McDonald's 2021 All American Games. Bass was one of seven Colorado athletes who made the nominated players list released on Feb. 18. McDonald's will announce its final roster of 48 players by the end of this month. McDonald's has held All-State Games for 44 years, and while this year's game has been canceled due to COVID-19, the company will still hold a virtual celebration to honor the players.
"Being named a McDonald's All American is about so much more than the game," McDonald's said in its nomination announcement. "It is a once in a lifetime achievement for high school seniors. McDonald's is committed to giving the incredible student-athletes who are named to the final team the recognition they deserve for their accomplishments and dedication to the game of basketball. Despite the state of the 2021 Games, they are legends and will be All Americans for life."
