2021 OHSAA Final Four: All-Tournament Team

*** MVP of the tournament is at the bottom.

The 2021 OHSAA State Tournament was a resounding success once again. All the folks behind the scene with the OHSAA and the Canal Park staff do a great job every year in making the State Tournament one to remember. From all of us here at PBR we would like to thank all that are a part of the OHSAA and the Canal Park staff. The State Tournament for Ohio is unlike any in the nation and you guys do a great job in making dreams come true for all the athletes.

We have the entire tournament covered. We have game stories, a scouting notebook, a video montage (coming soon), the All-Tournament Team and much more.

In the past we had the "Top 22", but in 2018 we expanded it and are doing the same in 2021 as there were so many guys deserving of honors. Congrats to all who have made the team.

*** Reminder - The All-State Teams will release later in the week ... to nominate, click here.
