    What only one Offensive Lineman and like 4 QBs. Any receivers? Typical reporters…… My coaches always said linemen get no credit

  • what the heck said,

    Braxton Daye nor Raymond Bridges got mentioned at all,what is wrong with this? after what both of these players did and also rubin crosby who was very great as a linebacker for the bison this is redecilous and no Dorian Anderson from western either wow this is unbelivible.

    How could Mark Mitchelll from Northern be left off completely ?

    I don’t think you can call this an All-Area “Team”. It’s not a “Team”. A football team has offensive and defensive linemen and this team has a severe shortage of the men in the trenches. This is just a list of the top players who get their name in the paper and get the recognition. It’s the lazy way to name an “All-Area Team”. Look at the NCPreps All-State teams and they are willing to do the work to find the best lineman to make a true team.

    It’s great for the players to get the recognition in the News & Record, but to call it a “Team” is a misnomer. Do the work to actually name a Team or just call it all All-Area players.

    What a joke of a Team. Does anyone believe these stats? I saw were one kid had over 200 tackles

    We had this same problem with the All-ACC basketball team years ago….It may be time to start re-defining the term term and in this case, what does it really mean??? .ACC hoops used to pick two guards, two forwards and a center….Then they went to the process of just selecting the Top Five players….May have to start calling this the Top 11/22 All Area Players and not team…..

    Very good points being posed…..If that was 200 unassisted tackles, this kid should be All-American….I remember being in a game back as a kid and one kid got 30 tackles and 20 of those came on late hits….I think that kid may have been me or somebody with the same last name, but I don’t remember…Too many concussions or too much late night TV……

    It is the same in basketball. All the talk is about scorers. Andy Durham adds to it with his coverage. There is more to these sports than the “flash” often covered by “journalists”. “Teams” win games and championships. Folks in this country used to know that fact. Most basketball and football fans don’t get it anymore. Sad commentary.
