I’ve been kind of quiet on the blog the last couple days because I’m finishing up The Journal News’ all-star/all-county football package, which will run in Sunday’s paper. I hope to complete everything by the end of tonight.
As you may know, the all-star package includes all teams in Westchester and Putnam Counties, public, Catholic and private. There are 11 offense, 11 defense and three special team slots for the first and second teams. Then there are a number of players who will receive honorable mention honors. One player from the first team will be named the player of the year. There will also be a coach of the year, which is extremely difficult this season.
The all-county package just includes the 11 schools from Rockland County. There are the same number of slots for first and second team, as well as picks for player of the year, coach of the year and honorable mention.
Section 1 will host its all-section dinner on Sunday evening at the Crowne Plaza in White Plains. I will have the section’s honorees on Sunday night. Unfortunately, I cannot attend the dinner because I have to work.
Let me know who you think are the players and coaches of the year, or which players deserve recognition. There are an amazing amount of quality candidates, as there are every year, but I’m interested to hear what you think.
