CHICAGO – For the last two years the McDonald’s All American game has featured a Chicago native who ends up stealing the show.

In 2013 it was Jabari Parker, now in his rookie year with the Milwaukee Bucks, and last year it was Jahlil Okafor, now a freshman at Duke.

This year’s “local” star came from roughly 32 miles away in Lincolnshire, Ill., but he proved to have the most skills of this year’s crop of All Americans on Monday night.

Stevenson point guard Jalen Brunson, a Villanova signee, won the POWERADE Jam Fest Skills Competition, clearing the course of dribbling, passing and shooting in 30.6 seconds at University of Chicago.

Brunson beat out Villa Angela-St. Joseph (Cleveland, Ohio) forward Carlton Bragg (32.8 seconds) and Roselle Catholic (Roselle, N.J.) point guard Isaiah Briscoe (45.5 seconds) to earn the hardware.
