Congratulations to Albany High's Azera Gates and Deavion Springsteen, NewsChannel 13's final picks for the high school basketball all-star teams.

Springsteen, a senior guard, averaged 18 points, five rebounds and four assists per game for Sean Brown’s Falcons squad this season. Details here.

Gates, a sophomore guard, averaged 11 points, six rebounds and four assists per game for Decky Lawson and the Falcons. Details here.

Both stood out this season for more than their athletic prowess. Their leadership on the team - on and off the court - and love for the game, were evident every second they played.

Senior forward Shonyae Edmonds was also named to NewsChannel 13's All-Star Team in January.
