ATTENTION Head Football Coach

Deadline to nominate for our team is Dec. 29. Again, please include postseason stats in your season totals. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY FAXED/E-MAILED ME NOMINATIONS, via Maury Salinger's form or just on your own, great, put this in File 13 — providing you sent me ENOUGH information. I GOTTA HAVE BASIC STATS. You are limited to SIX nominations (a player nominated at QB and DB counts as two nominations). The all-purpose athlete, punter, place-kicker and kick-returner DO NOT count toward the six.

On offense, we'll select three running backs, two split ends, a tight end, a center, and four offensive linemen. Remember, make sure to list WHAT POSITION YOUR OFFENSIVE LINEMAN PLAYS (G, C, T), if not, I'll place him for you.

On defense, we'll select four linemen, four linebackers and four defensive backs.

Don't forget about all-purpose athletes, place-kicker, punter and KICK-RETURNER. Include ONLY football stats and honors.

You can e-mail me at: robert.cessna@theeagle.com or fax nominations to 979-776-8923. Please try to avoid calling me if possible, it would be way too much if every coach tried to call. You can contact me via fax or e-mail (I'll confirm e-mails as I go through them). If you are worried about me getting it, fax it AND e-mail. I've found that works out, I'd rather have it twice than not at all. Thanks. I'll work for you if you work for me. If you are still in the playoffs, you can send in nominations this week and update when the season is over — so you don't forget.

2016-2017 Realignment


The UIL has announced the 2016-2017 realignments and reclassifications.

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.
