Philadelphia High School Basketball
Top All-City Players by "Power Points"

(1972-2021)

Return to TedSilary.com Home Page

  Like myself and others going back to the early '70s, Aaron "Ace" Carter decided to list his All-City selections -- 2014 to 2019 -- in what he saw as the proper order. So did Norm Eavenson, owner/operator of the Middle Atlantic Scouting Service, who picked the team in 2020. As did Randy Miller Jr., owner/operator of The Miller Report, our 2021 contributor. With that in mind, here is a list that shows which guys have accumulated the most All-City "power points" from 1974 through 202c0. In most years, the three teams have included 16 players. So, the Player of the Year earns 16 points, the runnerup 15 and so on. Co-Players of the Year split 31 points (or 29, in years when only 15 players are honored). The top spot, and oldheads won't be surprised, belongs to '77 West Philly grad Gene Banks with 46 points.
