Most of the DI All State selections did not have a lot of points . They played on winning teams with plenty of support. Meanwhile some kids that had double and triple the points did not get picked , while playing similar or tougher schedules. They were also on bad teams that they carried to playoffs .
Iâ€™m sorry what?
My kid didn't get named. So whaaaa whaaaaa whaaaa. Get it now?
Overall the list was far less obnoxious than years past. Sure, some great players got overlooked, most obvious being the shortage of Defensive players-But, there was a pretty decent uptick in the # of GKs recognized, so that's good! Here are some points of interest-
-Class AA High School POY isn't even in HS yet, she's in 8th grade
-Multiple top 5 "leading scorers" from Nassau & Suffolk did not make the list
-Only 2 players from State Champion SWR get a nod-2nd & 6th team
-Close to 60 players from LI named All State, less than 45 of them were named top 100 by Newsday including several 1st & 2nd team picks
