Burnell’s MVP leads winter award winners

ROCKFORD – The NIC-10 all-conference boys basketball team was released today after the culmination of the IHSA basketball tournament and Chris Burnell was named conference MVP.

It’s not a surprise. The four-year starter led the E-Rabs to a fourth-place finish in Class 4A and East shattered records for wins for East and the NIC-10.

Chris wasn’t alone on the NIC-10 team. Teammates Sha’Den Clanton and Sincere Parker also were picked for the first team. In fact, RPS 205 players made up half the first team as sophomores Josh Ausler of Auburn and Latrell Graham of Jefferson also were picked for the first team.

It was a strong winter run overall for RPS 205 sports. Here’s the complete list of first-team and special mention all-conference athletes.
