Boys Basketball: Vote for the 2023-2024 LebCo All-County Team!

The LebCo All-County Basketball Team voting is proudly sponsored by our friends at TJT Sports.


With the conclusion of the high school basketball season, we want to recognize the outstanding accomplishments from the 2023-2024 LebCo Boys Basketball season. THREE LebCo teams made it to the Districts, with Cedar Crest leading the pack by winning the Lancaster Lebanon League Championship and qualifying for the PIAA State Championship Tournament.
We made an effort to identify all of the season’s top performers, and after consulting with each local program, we narrowed down our selections. Nevertheless, we still need your help selecting the LebCo All-County Boys Basketball Team.

Below is a list of twenty-one nominees for the All-County Team. You are being asked to select your top five choices. After you have reviewed each nominee, please use the link to give your opinion in order to help us make the selections.

If you are unsure as to how each team finished the season, please see down at the bottom for a very brief recap.

Once fan voting is complete, it will be combined with voting from the coaches and the panel to determine which players were chosen for the First Team, Second Team, and Honorable Mention.

It is very important to note that while voting is involved and emotions can run high, the primary purpose is to draw attention to the hardworking athletes who competed for LebCo’s high schools this past season.

Please also note that the nominees are listed by class and then alphabetically ordered by last name. Any athlete we profiled as an Athlete of the Week during the Winter season is hyperlinked
