VERY IMPORTANT: We are certainly looking forward to you making great points about who should have been a first-teamer, second-teamer, etc. Some players have been picked over others, so comparing and contrasting is a natural part not only of the process but of the analysis afterwards. Remember, if someone should have been placed higher, that means another player has to be knocked down. But don't knock a player on this blog. Be respectful and polite, as almost all of you have been in all of your posts. Thanks very much for your feedback and enthusiasm for high school football.
