Kyle Guy of LC, Lindsey Corsaro of Roncalli named McDonald’s All-Americans
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind, (January 18, 2016) –Kyle Guy watched the McDonald’s All-American selection show Monday night with close friends and family. When his name popped up, all he could do was bury his head in his hands, filled with emotion.
His friends had more physical plans.
“They gave me about five seconds before they mobbed me,” laughed Guy. “My grandparents were crying, and my mom was going crazy. It was awesome.”
Averaging 24.6 points a game this year for Lawrence Central, the Virginia commit Guy is the first McDonald’s All-American in LC history.
“I grew up watching LN (Lawrence North) down the street with Greg Oden and Mike Conley,” says Guy. “I’ve always wanted to be a McDonald’s All-American, and now that I am, it’s a complete blessing and an honor, and to put my name up there with Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Vince Carter, and all the people who’ve gone through McDonald’s, it’s truly amazing.”
Along with Guy, Roncalli senior Lindsey Corsaro is a McDonald’s All-American on the girls side. The Kentucky commit was watching Monday evening’s selection show at home with her parents.
“We were all anxious,” Corsaro explains. “We just sat there, and I felt like the guys was taking forever. Finally my name came up, and I was on the first list that showed up. We were all just so excited. They gave me a hug, and it was just a great time.”
A 6-0 guard, Corsaro is averaging 26.9 points and 10.2 rebounds a game this season for the Lady Rebels.
“It’s an amazing feeling,” Corsaro continues. “I’m just so thankful for the opportunity and for my coaches and teammates that have gotten me here. A lot of the girls I’ll get to play with and against, I’ve played with and against before, so it’ll be kind of cool to reunite and be with them before we go off to college.”
The McDonald’s All-American Games will be played at The United Center in Chicago on April 1.
