About McDonald’s All American Hometown Heroes presented by American Family Insurance: For the second year, McDonald’s All American Hometown Heroes presented by American Family Insurance will traverse the country recognizing the 48 boys and girls selected to play in the 2017 McDonald’s All American Games. The program consists of a series of presentations honoring each All American in their local community to recognize the impact the player and community have had on each other. It takes a special talent to be recognized as a McDonald’s All American. Earning that distinction can be an unparalleled source of joy for not only the player, but also for the friends, family and community that have loved, supported and mentored them every step of the way. The feeling of representing those who have guided each All American will help support these players in their future aspirations, while those in their hometown – young and old – will beam with the pride that, “they’re one of ours.”
For 40 years, the McDonald’s All American Games have celebrated the nation’s top high school talent – now the hometown of each of these athletic heroes will have the opportunity to join in that celebration thanks to the support of American Family Insurance.
