Paul VI (Fairfax, Va.) star Amira Collins received her honorary McDonald’s All American Game jersey Friday.
Collins was honored as part of the McDonald’s Hometown Heroes presented by American Family Insurance.
“It was a great experience,” Collins said of the ceremony. “I had all my closest friends and teammates there.”
A 6-3 Tennessee signee, Collins has had her eyes on the McDonald’s game for quite a while.
“I’ve always dreamed of this—it was my biggest dream,” Collins said. “Ever since I was little I grew up watching this game, and having that dream and having that hope and now I’m able to say, hey, I did it.”
