    One thing is for sure......they are both more accurate and reliable than the questionable methods used by The Daily Herald in selecting their "All Valley Team".

    interesting Difference between The Desnews and Tribune Selection. Appears to me that the Tribune uses more weight from Coaches who actually game plans for the opposing players that are listed and are more qualify to decide who the best players in the States are..

    There are 2 quarterbacks, 2 running backs, 2 WR's (Not even a TE). 6 OL, 5 DL, 4 LB, 4 DB. What's wrong with that? That's only 25 players. I don't get what the complaint is. How about we congratulate these kids for their recognition.

    I completely agree with what you just wrote. There is no consistency, criteria or formula for these selections. Some selections are very obvious while others are very subjective. However, it has been that way for many years. The sad part is that the all-region voting is roughly 10 times more subjective, discombobulated and political. Either way, congrats to all those that were recognized this year and those that should have been. Both groups know who they are.

    Congratulations to all these young men and all the people who have helped them along the way, including family, little league coaches, mentors, scout leaders and of course their high school coaches. Also a big thanks to the entire education community in Utah who seek to educate the whole child. emb

    I always like looking at the All State Teams. The teams have no consistency. Two first team quarterbacks, 3 running backs no full backs or tight ends. anywhere from 3-6 OL 2-7 DL 2-5 LB and so on. No Punters. This seems like a bunch of politics to me. Look at the NCAA ALL American Teams or NFL all-pro That award one per position. All State in Utah is a joke.
