McQuaid to play in 2011 WIBCA All-State game

Chelan High School senior Aaron McQuaid has been selected to play in the 2011 Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association All-State Games presented by Adidas and Cloud 9 Sports next Saturday, March 12, at Mountlake Terrace High School. “It was cool to be selected,” said McQuaid on a telephone interview. “It was kind of my goal at the beginning of the season to play on an All-State Team.”
McQuaid is excited about playing with his peers. He’s hoping he’ll get some interest from colleges for basketball. “I’d rather play basketball than football,” he said. He has had considerable interest in his wide receiver status from several colleges like Whitworth.
On Saturday, the 1A All-State team will play the best of the best out of the 2A classification.
At 6’5” McQuaid was a force to be reckoned with on the Chelan Goat basketball team, often producing double/double statistics in scoring and rebounding. He was also very proficient at blocking opponent shots. McQuaid was also selected as the “Co-Player of the Year” in the Caribou Trail League this year.
The game will bring together the top boys basketball players from across the state for this showcase event. Past players in this annual game include Brandon Roy, Aaron Brooks, Luke Ridnour, Jason Terry and Nate Robinson, just to name a few.
In addition to the games, the organizers will be presenting the respective State Players of the Year, Coaches of the Year and the State Mr. Basketball award.
