Peters selected for school showcase

Caelin Peters, a 17-year-old Bermudian basketball player living in the United States, has been selected to play in the Philadelphia All-City Classic game.

The high school showcase, designed to highlight the region's best talent, pits public league boys and girls against non-public league players, or city players against suburban players.

For the second year in a row the All-City Classic bears the name of Rasual Butler, the former Roman Catholic High School star, All-City Classic alumni, and NBA veteran who died in a car accident last year.

The event also added a sponsorship from the Michael Jordan brand and all of the participants will receive a pair of sneakers.

Peters selection follows an outstanding year playing for his school Plymouth Whitemarsh in Pennsylvania. His coach James Donofrio believes Peters has a chance to eclipse the 1,000-point mark in the upcoming season.

Peters outputs last season included a 37-point game against Malvern Prep and a 29-point game against Conestoga High School in the play-offs.

Peters was also named co-MVP of the John Salmons Classic and the Jameer Nelson Classic.

The All-City Classic is a star studded event. All of last year's participants have gone on to receive scholarships to play at the collegiate level and the event has boasted some of the greatest players from the Philadelphia area in its 25-year history, including NBA stars Kobe Bryant, Richard Hamilton, Jameer Nelson, Kyle Lowry, Wayne Ellington, Dion Waiters, the Morris twins, Markieff and Marcus and Ronald Murray.

The 25th installment of Annual All-City Classic games will be played on May 31, at School of the Future in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
