Since anyone can create one of these teams, I thought I would give it a shot. I will be compiling data from as many coach interviews that I can plus I welcome any input that all of you fellow board users have. Do not just nominate your son or local hero. When you nominate someone, provide their season stats in comparison to the state leaders stats and if they are less, explain why they are more deserving of the award over the player with the better stats. Players of any age that played varsity are eligible so do not just nominate Seniors.
Secondly, I would like to create a Under-Dog All State Team too. This team will be for those athletes who may not have been the best player on the team, but had the biggest influence on a teams success from the scout squad or the sidelines. For example, my third string Center this year would be my scout team player of the year. We are not a shotgun program but when we were up against a shotgun team, he nailed every long snap on scout team. He saw playtime in one game this year and he was a senior. He had a huge impact on our team by giving our defense the best look possible on scout O. Another example of the type of kids I want on this team would be the kids that have hearts bigger than their bodies. Who would be a 3 star recruit if they had a frame to match their hearts. Players who made the all state, all area, and all conference teams would be excluded from this list.
