CAMDEN’S DJ WAGNER POPS 19 FOR MCDONALD’S CO-MVP AWARD!

By Sarah Paley

D.J. Wagner, the first third-generation McDonald’s All-American, led Team East to a 109-106 come-from-behind victory in last night’s boys game in Houston.

The Camden product scored all 19 points of his points in the second half and was named co-MVP of the McDonald’s All-American Game with Isaiah Collier.

Wagner’s transition slam put Team East up 107-106 with 35 seconds to play, and the future Kentucky Wildcat made two free throws after the USC-bound Collier missed a pair to give his team a late three-point lead.

The annual all-star game featured 24 of the best high school players in the country. Two of the headliners were Wagner and Sierra Canyon’s (California) Bronny James, the son of LeBron James.

Wagner’s grandfather, Milt, and dad, Dajuan, were both McDonald’s All-American selections. LeBron James, who was in attendance Tuesday night, played in the game and won the slam dunk contest back in 2003.
