Peters Selected For All-City Classic Basketball

May 14, 2019

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

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

For the 2nd 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 Jordan Brand and all of the participants will receive a pair of sneakers.

Peters selection comes following an outstanding year playing for his school Plymouth Whitemarsh, where his coach James Donofrio believes that Peters has a chance to eclipse the 1,000 point mark in the upcoming season.

Peters outputs this past season included a 37-point game against Malvern Prep and a 29-point game against Conestoga High School in the playoffs. Peters was also named co-MVP of both the John Salmons Classic and the Jameer Nelson Classic [Play-by-Play showcase events].

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 rich 25 year history, including the likes of NBA stars Kobe Bryant, Rip Hamilton, Jameer Nelson, Kyle Lowry, Wayne Ellington, Dion Waiters, the Morris twins [Markieff and Marcus], Flip Murray, and more.

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