Right, I agree, but it seems like while some teams report every stat possible,
others tend to report maybe points scored 80 percent of the time. It just seems
like an imbalanced way to look at it. I think it may be more likely whoever is
the loudest whenever these coaches get together is who gets players chosen. I
notice there are 2 girls from Weber and one from Davis who, in my opinion, are
questionable considering I watched Layton play Weber and Davis twice. Both
times they were severely out-talented. Just my opinion.
The coaches select the teams based on what they see during the season. Stats
are an important tool because coaches might only see a player 2 or 3 games all
season. In a perfect world coaches would be able to recognize the most talented
and deserving players but......
Is that how these teams are picked? Based on what stats are turned in by
coaches? I'm not sure what happened to the stats, but I agree with you
about Maddi Smith. I watched that team play several times this season and she
was consistently the best player all year long on what most considered to be the
second best team in the state. Yet, she gets no recognition or accolades.
Having a great season like Layton did, and not being recognized, it's a
I don't take anything away from Layton as a team, they proved they belong
at the top of team play. All-Area and All-State are individual honors and
"team" has nothing to do with it. An example is Dezz Ramos, a sub-par
team with an exceptional player. Numbers tell the story, Layton had great team
numbers but no one individual stood out. What happened to Layton’s stats?
Maddi Smith 1 rebound? I would blame the coaching staff for not reporting
Amazing! The region 1 teams are pretty poor. Layton loses 2 games all
season(only to Syracuse) and plays one poor game in the state tournament(which
allowed Weber to play lesser teams) and they are not represented well. They beat
Weber, Davis, and Northridge twice handily during the regular season. So if one
team plays mediocre all season and then has a couple decent games in the state
tournament, they must have good players? After looking at the deseret news all
state teams...I shouldn't be surprised.
Good list except the Point guards. Amber Daly was the best point guard in
region 1 hands down. And proved against Weber twice winning both games by a big
margin. She was short changed.
