Information in this article, originally published March 29, was corrected March 31. A previous version of this story contained an error. Rob Fahnestock's name was misspelled in a historical list of Seattle-area Parade All-American basketball players. He attended Roosevelt High School in 1962 when he was named to the team.
Seattle Prep's Spencer Hawes, who plays in the McDonald's All-America Game tonight, has been named a first-team Parade All-American.
Hawes is on the West team for the 7 o'clock game in San Diego that will be televised on ESPN.
The Parade Magazine honor is just the latest for Hawes, a 7-footer who is headed to the University of Washington, where his father, Jeff, and uncle, Steve, played.
Hawes is the third player in three years from the state of Washington to make the Parade first team. Last year, Seattle Prep teammate Martell Webster made the 10-man first team. In 2004, Marvin Williams of Bremerton became the first athlete in state history to make the magazine's first team.
Webster and Williams are in the NBA, Webster playing for Portland and Williams for Atlanta. Williams scored the deciding basket in the NCAA championship game for North Carolina last year.
Hawes averaged 19.9 points, 11.3 rebounds, 3.1 blocks and 3.0 assists in leading Seattle Prep to the Class 3A state championship this month. He was MVP of the state tournament, Seattle Times state player of the year and Gatorade state player of the year.
Seattle Prep coach Michael Kelly has called Hawes "a teammate among teammates."
Parade named Greg Oden, a 7-footer from Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis, its player of the year. He has signed with Ohio State. Hawes and Oden are likely to find themselves guarding each other tonight.
A Northwest player joining Hawes and Oden on the Parade first team is junior Kevin Love of Lake Oswego, Ore. Love, a powerful 6-10 post, led the Lakers to the Oregon 4A title this season.
