Days away from a battle for City League supremacy between Brookhaven and Walnut Ridge, the league's North division announced its first and second team All-City rosters. Take a look below.

All-City League North (First Team)

Ronnie Williams (Senior PG / Brookhaven)

Brookhaven's spiritual and emotional leader, Williams willed the Bearcats to their first City League North title in eight years. Whether he was scoring, distributing, or playing swarming defense, Williams made the difference for Brookhaven in an inspiring run to a division title.

Shemar Waugh (Senior PG / Northland)

Joining Williams at Ohio Dominican in the fall, Waugh was a no-brainer for first-team All-City. One of the state's top on-ball defenders, Waugh was also one of the area's assist leaders in leading Northland to a 13-1 mark in league play. Although the Vikings faltered late at Brookhaven in their second matchup with the Bearcats, Waugh was key in limiting Williams in the Vikings' win in the teams' first meeting.

Joseph Thomas (Junior PF / Centennial)

Averaging 18 points and 10 rebounds in leading Centennial to a 13-8 mark on the season, Thomas was a breakout performer in the City League North. Alongside senior guards Octavius Luke and Gyai Gyamerah, Centennial had one of the division's top trios with Thomas in the middle.

Dalton Laster (Junior SG / East)

Another breakout performer in the City League North was East's Laster. Related to former Tiger standout Jordan Laster, who took home first team honors in 2010, Dalton was one of the top perimeter shooters in 2013-14. Leading East to a 13-8 record on the year, Laster had big performances in wins at Beechcroft (24 points), and home vs. Mifflin (22 points).

Stanley Jackson (Junior SF / Mifflin)

Mifflin's post presence en route to an 11-10 regular season campaign, Jackson earns first-team honors for the first time as a junior. Paired with junior point guard PJ Wilkes, who is a surprise snub this year, the Mifflin duo were one of the top scoring combos in Central Ohio, a sign of good things to come for first-year coach Mike Thornton Sr.

J-Saun Davis (Junior PF / Brookhaven)

Brookhaven's grown man in the middle, Davis is a no-brainer for first-team in the city after strong performances vs. tough competition in the final week and a half of the season. Davis, otherwise known as the "Red Dreaded Monster," (I totally made that up), is a force to be reckoned with in the post, as his great size and strength help him finish consistently around the rim. Davis is also a very strong rebounder, especially on the offensive glass.

Seth Towns (Sophomore SF / Northland)

The youngest player on the North roster, Towns was Northland's most consistent scorer in a disappointing season according to Viking standards. Excelling with mid-range jump shooting, and excellent off-the-ball movement, Towns is a pure scorer that looks to take a greater role in the Northland offense as a junior.

All-City League North (Second Team)

Octavius Luke (Senior SG / Centennial)
Derek McKeithen (Senior SF / Northland)
Hasan Varence (Junior PF / Linden-McKinley)
Jordan Radcliffe (Senior SG / International)
Jaylen Tucker (Senior PF / Northland)
