Clovis Gallon Sr. is undoubtedly a little biased when it comes to his children.

Most any father would be.

Tuesday, however, the York High head boys' basketball coach had good reason to express pride in his son.

Clovis Gallon Jr. was one of two York-Adams League boys' players to earn berths on the 2018-19 Pennsylvania Sports Writers All-State Boys' Basketball Teams. He was the only player from York County to be honored.

Gallon was a third-team pick in Class 5-A, while Littlestown's Logan Collins was a second-team selection in Class 4-A. Both are seniors.

The 6-foot, 5-inch Gallon averaged 18.6 points per game this past season, good for eighth in the Y-A League. He was also second on the team in assists and shot more than 40% from 3-point range and 80% at the foul line.

"Clovis Jr. is a unique player at the high school level," his father said. "(With his size as a guard) he could impact the game in every way."

Gallon Jr. helped the Bearcats win both the Y-A Division I and Y-A playoff championships. York finished 24-5 overall and 12-2 in D-I. The Bearcats finished third in the District 3 Class 5-A playoffs and qualified for the state playoffs, where they won a game.

Gallon Jr. is a big reason why the Bearcats enjoyed such success.

"He's a gym rat and was always looking for more time to get shots up and improve his game," Gallon Sr. said. "He has also fallen in love with the weight room, which is a rarity but a must for high school players that desire to play at the next level. He is in a rare class of York High greats and I'm happy to have been able to witness a great high school career. He's left a great example to the younger guys as to what a student athlete should look like."

Gallon Jr. has not made a college choice. He is currently debating between Lawson State (a Divison I junior college in Alabama) and several prep schools.

Logan Collins: The 6-foot, 4-inch Collins averaged 22.0 points per game in helping the Thunderbolts win the York-Adams League Division III championship. He was second in the Y-A League in scoring.

Littlestown finished 24-4 overall and 13-1 in D-III. Littlestown finished fifth in the District 3 Class 4-A playoffs to earn a state berth. 

Collins has committed to play at the NCAA Division III level for York College.
