Saratoga's Stevens nominated to McDonald's All-American squad

Well, so much for keeping a prestigious honor a secret when its presented by a multi-billion dollar corporation.

I received an e-mail telling me that Saratoga Springs senior Jordan Stevens had been named to the McDonald's All-American Boys selection listing for the 30th annual contest in April in Florida.

It is the start of the process of naming 24 boys and 24 girls to the McDonald's All-American team and Stevens is part of the 1,000 names that are forwarded to the selection committee.

The e-mail was to give us a heads up, to be at the Feb. 12 basketball game at Saratoga Springs High School where Stevens would be presented with his nomination award and of course, he didn't know about it, so they were trying to keep it a secret.

I'm good at keeping secrets, just ask...we'll I can't tell you, but you get the point.

That lasted less than two days before a "Media Alert" was sent out to the world by the local golden arches owner's group and now, basically, everyone knows.

Stevens is joined by Chris Pelcher and Tyler Foster from Albany Academy and Mariah Stewart who plays for Bishop Maginn, representing the Capital Region.

Despite the opportunity for surprise of exclusivity, the nomination is certainly deserved by Stevens and here's hopes that he makes it to the short list.
