Then who belongs on all-state this year? How should they be selected? Has it been posted anywhere...obviously the players know because I saw that they played last night. But, who and how should it be selected? Who was left off in your opinion.

coaches have said how it works

 

Also, a lot has to do with how some players are marketed, for lack of a better term. They are marketed by their coaches. They are marketed by their parents. They are marketed by friendly news reporters. They are marketed and marketed and marketed. It can be relentless and a lot of times everyone just buys into it. It is widespread and it happens all across the country. Sometimes the kids are special talents, but a lot of times they are average players. After being marketed they go to maybe a Division 1 school and disappear. I'm sure that anyone who has been around soccer for any length of time could come up with a few examples.

anybody who thinks that the all-state teams are perfect is dreaming. the teams are quality, but there is always error. first off, the number of coaches that join the macs from each area affect how many kids they can get on the teams. for example, if only a few coaches join from your county, it is a lot harder to get a lot of kids on the teams. second, many players are "talked up" either by club teams or by the papers. some kids may be going D1 for a certain position in club, but are only decent at a different position in high school. they will still get treated very well. also, the success of your team plays a role. teams still playing in the state tournament when they pick 2nd team and honorable have a better chance of getting their players on it. also, sometimes a team will have success and have no standout players, but their best player will be nominated anyway. the all-state teams are a good recognition of good players, but a few players are treated unfairly. sometimes they don't get recognized because their coach didn't join/attend the meeting, sometimes they are overrated. it is a judgment that politics influence, but that's the way it is. its not so bad and rewards mostly good players.

Wanted to bump this up and thank everyone for making this a good thread that has ran for a long time.

 

Congratulations to all the champs (yes even JM Bennet:D) and to every player that gave his best over the season. Well done everyone.

Bump... :D

 

Any more college commitments from this year's seniors, other than the ones already listed in The Sun?

 

Howard County All-County should be out this week and All-Met is out next week...

 

shutout, any word yet on who will be replacing DeVincent at Liberty?

No word as of yet. I would imagine that may not come out until spring
