NAPA, Calif. (KRON) — Each year, the top senior boys and girls high school basketball players from around the United States gather for the McDonald’s All-American game. Legends such as LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant have played in the contest.

This year, three of the 24 boys players in the game hail from the same Bay Area prep school — Prolific Prep in Napa. Those three players and their coach stopped by KRON4’s Sports Night Live to talk about the honor (full interview above).

“It feels great, for sure,” said Aiden Sherrell, a 6-foot-10 center. “It’s a surreal feeling. I always dreamed of it as a kid. It feels like a dream come true.”

The McDonald’s All-American game will be held in Houston on Tuesday, April 2. The talented youngsters will have a chance to go up against the best and showcase their skills in front of a national audience.

“The bright lights,” said forward Derrion Reid. “Knowing that all the hard work paid off, and just seeing family there also that I haven’t seen in a while fly out to see me.”

Prolific Prep enrolls students from all over the country, and this trio is no different. Sherrell and Reid hail from Georgia and guard Zoom Diallo is from Tacoma, Wash.

The teenagers left their families behind to focus on honing their basketball skills at a program that is becoming known for developing future professionals.

“I’ve been living with my family — my mom and my dad — for like 17 years of my life,” Diallo said. “So me being here by myself, I kind of had to mature, get older and I made this step to prepare me for the next level, so I’m proud of myself doing that and it’s been great.”

Next year, Reid and Sherrell are headed back south to play for Alabama while Diallo will suit up for his hometown Washington Huskies. Sherrell was the first to commit to the Crimson Tide, and he persuaded his teammate Reid to join him.

“I was on his head trying to get him there,” Sherrell said. “I was the first commit, and I’ve been on him heavy.”

With their college futures set, the trio is aiming to bring a national championship back to Napa. The day after the McDonald’s All-American game, the young stars and their coach Ryan Bernardi will get on a plane to Indianapolis for their national tournament, which begins on that Thursday.

“If you’re watching on Tuesday night, know that these guys are playing in 48 hours in the national tournament,” Bernardi said.

Prolific Prep is no stranger to producing All-Americans. With Reid, Sherrell and Diallo earning the honor, 12 Prolific Prep students have made the game in the school’s history. NBA players such as Jalen Green and Gary Trent Jr. attended the academy as well.
