Jake Wadding’s accolades keep rolling in.

After averaging 17.5 points and 8.0 rebounds per game, the fifth player in CHS history to eclipse 1,000 career points (1,054) has been named to the Indy Star Indiana Boys Jr. All-Star Team.

“I’m extremely happy for Jake,” Chesterton boys basketball coach Marc Urban said. “Anytime you get named to that team in Indiana says something about you.”

Wadding, who was named to the Red Group of All-Stars, helped lead the Trojans to their first IHSAA Sectional title since 1987. The Red Group players joining Wadding are Deontae Craig of Culver Military, Johnell Davis of Gary 21st Century, Zak Krueger of Homestead and Chris Grubbs and Mabor Majak of Hamilton Southeastern.

There are 24 players selected and lumped into four groups of six players each.

The White Group players are Brayton Bailey of Bedford North Lawrence, Carson Barrett of Lafayette Central Catholic, Tre Coleman of Jeffersonville, Sincere McMahon of Crispus Attucks, Tayson Parker of Northwestern and Tony Perkins of Lawrence North.

Mark Detweiler of Delta will be the head coach for the boys Junior All-Stars. Detweiler will be assisted by Ryan Eakins of East Noble and Ryan Osborn of Carmel.

The Junior All-Stars will play two games against the Kentucky Junior All-Stars, the first tentatively on June 1 at a Kentucky site to be announced and the second on June 3 at Jeffersonville High School. The Junior All-Stars also will play one game against the Indiana All-Star senior boys on June 5. The June 5 game also will be at a site to be announced.

The players listed as Core Group players will play in all three games. The players in the Blue Group will play on the June 1 game against Kentucky. The Players in the White Group will play in the June 3 game against Kentucky. The players in the Red Group will play in the June 5 game against the Indiana seniors.

The Junior All-Star team is determined by the 20-member Indiana Basketball Coaches Association all-state panel in conjunction with its selection of the IBCA/Subway Underclass All-State Team. The selection process allows all IBCA-member head coaches to nominate players through the IBCA all-state process.

Representatives from 16 regional areas from across the state, district representatives from the IHSAA districts (one each from District 1, District 2 and District 3) and the committee chair then meet to review the nominations, vote and finalize the selections.
