    Oh well, here we go again, A selection list of names chosen by coaches whom supposedly was at every single game and writers whom was present at every single game and have gathered information to make a selection of the best players in the state, or state tournament, championship game, or whatever….and be able to separate player A from player B and who out performed who. At least this list had the intellect to keep D1 and D2 separate. Someone once admitted that yes these list are basically just a list that someone puts together based on information of their choosing and the reason why is….because they can. No additional info required. CONGRATS! to all the players that made this list and to the many players who didn’t because of who knows what! #unsunghereos #transparency #callemasyoucem

    @trump 2020 my guess is your kid didn’t make it? After all of that….CONGRATS? A lot of the names on both teams had a great season and did a bang up job in the tournament. Good luck to your kid next year!
