Mater Dei High School’s Gary McKnight, among the greatest boys basketball coaches in California history, will coach the boys Southern Section team at the 20th annual Collision All Star Game on Saturday April 14 at Los Angeles Harbor College.

McKnight, who led Mater Dei to a record 22nd CIF championship and has won 91 percent of all games he’s coached with a remarkable record of 1107-105, will be coaching against Taft’s Derrick Taylor, an accomplished pilot in his own right. Taylor will be coaching the City Section boys for the third time at Collision.

Gardena Serra’s McKinsey Hadley, who led the Cavaliers to the girls CIF State championship, will coach the Southern Section girls team and City Open Division champion Westchester’s Charles Harrell and Legacy’s Ronald Estrada which finished as City Section Division I runner-up will co-coach the girls City team.


Collision features the top senior girls and boys from the City Section against the Southern Section.

The girls game is scheduled to tip off at 5:30 p.m. and the boys game at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for ages 12 and older and $5 for children.
