Next up in the list of honors from the 2021 NY2LA Association is the second team for the 16U level. With a highly skilled group at this level, there was plenty of competition for these honors. Here are the seven members of the 16U second team for the 2021 season. 

Tyshawn Archie – 2023 – G – Team Temple
Tournament after tournament, Archie dazzled with his abilities with the ball in his hands. The highly elusive point guard is a magician with the basketball who continuously gave defenders issues. With his incredibly shifty moves, great quickness, and tremendous handle, Archie proved to be nearly impossible to defend off the dribble. One of the most exciting and talented players of the entire association. 

Gavin Farrell – 2023 – G – WI Dynasty
One of most skilled guards on the offensive end at the 16U who just continued to get better each and every tournament. The 2023 two-guard point up some big point totals throughout the season for his Dynasty team. Farrell can really light it up from the perimeter but also really improved his playmaking ability off the dribble over the season. 

Jalen Hooks – 2023 – F – George Hill All Indy
With a long list of offers that includes LSU, Marquette, Pittsburgh, Xavier, and more it’s safe to say Hooks is one of the more coveted players in all the Midwest. At 6’7” with his skill set and athleticism, the wing forward was constantly impacting the game in a variety of ways during the spring and summer. Hooks was a key piece of all the success for George Hill All Indy this season. 

Ethan Kizer – 2023 – F – Mid Pro Academy
While three of his teammates received first team honors, Kizer is not a player to be forgotten from the 16U Mid Pro team. The wing forward was a key reason for Mid Pro’s dominant championship season. Not just an incredibly active and high-flying wing, Kizer was also one of the top three-point shooters. 

Bennett McCormick – 2023 – G – JH1 Elite
One of the bigger breakout stars of the 16U level of the association. Throughout the entire spring and summer, McCormick was one of the most consistent high-level performers at the 16U level.  The wing guard was just unstoppable at times leading JH1 to a successful season on the association. McCormick is a very skilled slasher who also has a well-rounded game on both ends of the floor. 

Bobby McWard – 2023 – G – 3D Empire
McWard was a huge reason for all the success of 3D Empire this season with his consistent high level of play. While McWard can do plenty on the floor, all season he was one of the top shooters on the entire association. With such a great looking jumper, McWard was continuously knocking down threes in bunches game after game. 

Adison Mittlestadt – 2023 – G – Movement Hoops
One of the top scorers of the entire 16U level on the association. He’s a high IQ guard that continuously impressed with an efficient and versatile scoring ability during the season. Mittlestadt is a knockdown shooter from the outside but also showed a nice scoring ability going to the basket on drives and cuts. One of the top scoring guards in the 16U association.
