Taylor Scores 15, Helps East Win

Here's the final report from National Christian star Dante Taylor, talking about playing in the McDonald's All-American Game last night:

I have been dreaming of playing in the McDonald's All American Games since I was young, and today was the day. We started off the morning with a shoot around and took some independent team photos. Shoot around went really well and got my adrenaline going for the big game. After we were done practicing, we went back to the hotel for dinner and loaded up on some carbs. With a little free time to spare, I took a quick nap before heading back over to the BankUnited Center for the big show.
When we first arrived, we had the chance to watch the beginning of the girls' game. It's cool to see how far the women's game has come and how talented all these girls are on the court. Then it was the boys turn to take the floor.

Playing on such a huge stage where all the legends in basketball have played before was unbelievable. I went out there and put on a show on national television and in front of my friends and family in the crowd. I finished the game with 15 points, 6 rebounds and a win! Most importantly, my play tonight helped raise money for the families I met at the Ronald McDonald House in Miami. There really is nothing better than having the chance to give back while playing the game you love.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my experiences throughout the week. My time in Miami for the McDonald's All American Games was one I will always remember.
