Attention Coaches, Parents, Players and Fans! ...

When All-State football and volleyball teams are released and you look for a player that didn't make one of the teams -- please do us a favor before sending an irate E-mail listing all the reasons why your player was deserving to be on one of these teams.

We can't select players if they were never nominated. Coaches and/or sports writers are the only ones who can nominate a player(s). If they are not nominated - our writers can't vote on someone who is not on the ballot. So check with your coach FIRST to see if the player was even nominated.

There is no way a single sports writer, who compiles the ballots, can know every player across the state. Coaches are the life-line in helping us select players. If coaches choose not to participate in submitting their players -- then we can't do anything beyond that.



Volleyball

Softball

Football

Baseball

...and much more
