Today the McDonalds All-American Games unveiled the rosters for the 12th annual McDonald's All-American Girls Team.  The game will feature the first ever father/daughter duo with Taya Reimer (Hamilton Southeastern – Indianapolis, Ind.), daughter of Ben Davis who was a McDonald's All-American in 1991. Other top female talent includes Mercedes Russell (Springfield High – Springfield, Ore.), Diamond DeShields (Norcross High School – Norcross, Ga.) and local Chicago star Linnae Harper (Whitney Young – Chicago, Ill.). California will be well-represented with four female student-athletes making the final team, including Oderah Chidom (Bishop O’Dowd – Oakland, Calif.), Kendall Cooper (St. Anthony – Carson, Calif.), Erica McCall (Ridgeview High – Bakersfield, Calif.) and Kelsey Plum (La Jolia Country Day School – Poway, Calif.). The annual high school all-star event will again be played at Chicago’s United Center on April 3. The Girls Game begins at 6:00 p.m. CT April 3, and will broadcast live on ESPNU.
