Because this COVID-crazy season has taken so much from us — fans, games, state tournaments — Whatcom Hoops has decided to add something for teams and fans alike: our all-Whatcom Hoops all-star teams … with our own little twist.
First of all, these will be all-WHATCOM COUNTY teams, which means the Lummi Nation players will be included but no Skagit or Snohomish County players will be eligible.
Second, while most basketball all-star squads have five-player teams, we don’t know of any high school that has a team with only five players. So our all-Whatcom Hoops squads will have 10 players on their first, second and third (honorable mention) teams..
We will be releasing the teams all this week. Here’s the schedule and links to previous teams:
Monday: Girls honorable mention
Tuesday: Boys honorable mention
Wednesday: Girls second team
Thursday: Boys second team
Friday: Girls first team
Saturday: Boys first team
Sunday: End of the year awards
So, here are the all-Whatcom Hoops boys second team in alphabetical order.
