Congratulations to the Griffins' No. 12 Zion Williamson for being named to the McDonald's All-American Games. Zion is one of 24 boys players from throughout the nation to achieve this honor. He was recognized during a special assembly in the Griffins' home gym Friday morning.
Zion commented that achieving All-American was a goal he set for himself when he began playing basketball in Middle School.
"Thank you to Spartanburg Day School for providing the platform for me to continue my basketball journey," Zion said. "To Coach Sartor and my teammates for supporting me and pushing me for the last four years to evolve into a player and as a leader and a trendsetter. To those fans who have supported me on this journey, thank you for demanding that I be my best every time i step onto the floor. To my family, you have been my rock and my foundation through this process."
Head of School Rachel Deems said, "Our Griffin family was honored to share in yet another honor for senior Zion Williamson today as he accepted the McDonald's All American Award, one of only 24 young men selected from across the nation. Zion has shared his spotlight with all of us and with athleticism, style and humility has contributed to a season of spirited memories which we will all remember long after he graduates. We wish our boys varsity team the very best tomorrow as they take the court in Sumter to vie for a third consecutive state championship."
