The Catholic League was loaded with a number of great high school basketball players this season. The amount of talent was very evident in the Philadelphia Catholic League Boys' Basketball Coaches' All-League team.

The All-League voting was done by the league's 15 head coaches, which picked a first, second and third team. Archbishop Wood guard Rahsool Diggins was named the league's Most Valuable Player. Diggins was also chosen as the 2020-21 MaxPreps Pennsylvania High School Boys' Basketball Player of the Year.
