SportsRecruiters.com is very excited to present this award program in Pennsylvania as it continues to grow. Twenty-six states with rich high school basketball traditions such as Texas, Indiana, Ohio, California, Kentucky, Kansas, Illinois, New York, Michigan, and North Carolina present awards annually (in collaboration with fans, coaches, and the sports media). With Pennsylvania being a hot-bed for high school basketball, it’s time for Pennsylvania to have a Mr. and Miss Basketball award. It's long overdue according to sportswriters and basketball enthusiasts.
