How are All State Players selected? That is who picks them, any criteria?
My kid's coach told me that they narrow it down to the players that get the most and most "significant" votes for All-County. Most "significant" meaning votes from coaches from top teams. So say a kid gets an All-County nod from an opposing coach from a team that's Division champs or County Champs or even State Champs, that nod will get weighed more heavily than a vote from an opposing coach from the last place team that a kid snagged a bunch of points from.
From there, the NYSSWA weighs difficulty of team schedule and team success to suss out what team the kid get awarded.
