As stated by the Associated Press after-the fact:
The Associated Press revised the selection process this year, doing away with its first and second teams in favor of 12-player squads for boys and girls.
This decision by the AP to drop 1,2,3 team all AREA High School Athletics is simple a â€œKick in the Gutâ€ to many male & female athletes. Especally; after many deserving kids were ALREADY named and were aware they were named. Majority being from right here in Guilford County.
Everyone has heard of the players the AP has selected. Great, we hear about them ALL the time, and deservinglyâ€¦ but the fomat you have decided on just IS NOT FAIR to other athletes around the areaâ€¦ they too need to see their names in the media and know that the community is paying attention to their acheivements as well.
Bad callâ€¦.by AP. Thanks for all youâ€™ve done supporting area athletics in the past but this has hurt many and definitely has sent the WRONG MESSAGE to many deserving players and teams in Guilford County.
We say print 1,2,3 teams. Let the kids have somthing to get excited about and look forward to EVEN IF THEYâ€™RE NOT IN THE ESPN TOP 100.
