Charleston Catholic 6-foot-4 junior forward Nick George (15.6 ppg, 7.3 rpg) was a second-team selection a year ago, and led the Irish to the Class A title game. In three seasons as a starter, George has played in nine state tournament games, and helped the Irish win the state championship in 2012.
Of the four remaining first-team picks, two reached the state tournament. Buffalo 6-2 senior forward Levi Jordan (17.0 ppg) led the Bison to a 21-5 record and their first tournament appearance since 2008. Of Buffalo's five losses, four came to Charleston Catholic.
Greater Beckley Christian also reached the state tournament, and 6-1 Crusader senior Keith Mullins (19.1 ppg) landed a spot on the all-state team.
Parkersburg Catholic 5-10 junior guard Jake Ullman averaged 22.3 points and made the first-team list, as did Trinity senior Cody Triplett. A key figure on the Warriors team that reached the 2011 state title game, Triplett's final season saw him average 21.8 points and 9.8 rebounds.
Triplett was the only repeat selection from the 2012 all-state first team.
Magnolia was stunned by rival Wheeling Central in the first round of the state tournament after it had beaten the Maroon Knights three times in as many previous meetings this season. Winters said that while he was disappointed in his showing in Charleston, he has moved forward from the loss.
"I'm still disappointed in our performance at the tourney, but this kinda lightens the mood a bit," Winters said. "It's nice to get all these honors, but I can't settle on them because it's not the end for me. I have four more years at [Wheeling] Jesuit and I've already started working towards that."
Notre Dame 6-4 junior Cal Cistaro, who averaged 19.1 points and 11 rebounds, was named captain of the second team while Wheeling Central 6-4 junior David Pack was the third-team captain. Park averaged 16.5 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists.
