ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - The McDonald's All-American list features elite players throughout the country.

And South Georgia, once again, finds their way on this years list.

This year, all three of the nominees are coming out Camilla.

And for the boy’s side, we head to Mitchell County.

Derrick Harris Jr. is the only boy representing South Georgia this year.

And spoke about what this honor means to him, his family and the city.

“It’s crazy, it’s unbelievable," said Harris. "It’s like unexplainable. They helped me out a lot. Like coach Rick, my dad. They’ve all been a big part of my life, or my basketball career.”

Harris looks to keep the Eagles in the drivers seat, as they get ready to welcome Pelham this Friday.
