A major part of this tournament weekend is identifying the players who have stood out as the best of the best in their respective divisions. Our All American Committee has done fantastic work to identify these candidates, highlighting them through their stats, their game-changing plays, and their presence on the field. We look for game changers and game makers. Some of those candidates may have been mentioned in the highlights on this blog, with decisions coming out on our All American players at the conclusion of each championship game on Sunday.
The first round of playoffs can make or break a team’s chances at advancing toward a national title, and can affect a player’s chances at getting that All American recognition. Whether they won or lost this morning, every individual on the field put their best efforts into making an impact.
