Douglas senior Hunter Myers became the first Northern Nevadan nominated as a boys McDonald's All-American since Galena's Luke Babbitt in 2008.

Myers on Tuesday was one of 13 boys from Nevada to receive an official nomination. The final selections will be announced Feb. 14 on ESPNU.

Myers averages 18.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and four blocks per game for the second-ranked Tigers (13-6). He committed to Harvard in October.

Babbitt was named a McDonald's All-American in 2008 , as was Reno High's David Padgett in 2003.

The others nominated from Nevada this year are: Marcus Allen, Centennial; Stephen Clark, Quest Academy; Allerik Freeman, Findlay Prep; Julian Jacobs, Desert Pines; Rashad Muhammad, Bishop Gorman; Stanford Robinson, Findlay Prep; Dion Wade, Findlay Prep; Nigel Williams-Goss, Findlay Prep; Eris Winder, Palo Verde; Christian Wood, Findlay Prep; Justin Yamzon, Lake Mean Christian; Daniel Young, Valley.

More than 800 players from 39 states were nominated for the boys and girls games. Nominations were submitted by the McDonald's All-American Games Selection Committee, school principals, athletic directors and coaches.

On the girls side, five Nevada players received nominations. Three from Centennial (Jada Brown, Tamera Williams and Breanna Workman) and two from Bishop Gorman (Tonishia Childress and April Rivers).
