On Tuesday the McDonald’s All American Games lost a champion with the passing of its founder Morgan Wootten. It was his passion for coaching that led to the founding of the McDonald’s All American Games as a showcase to recognize the best high school basketball talent in the country. Since 1978, Morgan championed emerging basketball stars and helped girls and boys realize their dreams.
The McDonald’s All American Games continue to celebrate the nation’s top athletes on their journey from the hustle to greatness, while also enriching relationships with local communities across the country.
