Three former York-Adams basketball players were selected to the Middle Atlantic Conference All-Century Men's Basketball Teams, it was announced Monday.
York High graduate Ron Warner, York Catholic High graduate Bob Rudisill and Delone Catholic High graduate Jim Zinn were honored.
The MAC All-Century Teams are part of the conference's "MAC 100," a celebration of its 100th anniversary. Candidates were divided by era and voted on by fans through an online poll this past winter. The MAC is announcing its All-Century Teams at the end of each respective sports season throughout the year.
Warner is a 1962 graduate of Gettysburg College. He was one of eight athletes representing the era from 1912-66 and piled up 1,880 points from 1959-62 -- a school record that stood for 49 years. He played just three seasons because freshmen were ineligible for varsity competition at the time, and averaged 24.4 points per game. The 5-foot, 10-inch guard, also played his entire career before the 3-point line was adopted. Playing when Gettysburg competed in the MAC University Division, Warner was a three-time All-MAC selection, capturing first-team honors as a junior and senior. An honorable mention All-American as well as a Small All-American (given to players under 6 feet tall), he went on to become a charter member of Gettysburg's Hall of Athletic Honor in 1978.
Rudisill was a 1980 graduate of Gettysburg College. He was one of eight athletes named to the All-Century Team from the 1975-82 era. A 6-foot, 3-inch guard, he was a two-time All-MAC honoree, garnering first-team honors in 1977-78 and honorable-mention accolades in 1979-80. Rudisill scored 1,028 points from 1976-80 despite playing alongside the third all-time leading scorer in school history, Bill North, a 1981 Gettysburg grad. Also playing without a 3-point line, he averaged a career-high 14.3 points per game as a senior. For his career he shot 82.0 percent at the free-throw line, which ranks fourth in school history. Rudisill went on to a successful high school basketball coaching career with the Kennard-Dale boys' and York Suburban girls' programs.
Zinn, a 2004 graduate of DeSales, was selected for the 2004-2012 era. He finished his career with 1,079 points . Zinn earned All-Freedom Conference First-Team honors twice and was named the Player of the Year as a senior in 2004. He also earned Honorable-Mention All-America honors by DIII News in 2004 and still ranks No. 1 all-time at DeSales in 3-point shooting percentage. He is currently the head coach of the New Oxford boys' basketball program.
