I know everybody’s got their favorites, and there’s bound to be plenty of subregional and conference bias, but here’s your chance to give me what you think are the best players in the Greater Fairfield County region covered by the Connecticut Post.
I’ll be working with coaches over the next few weeks to come up with our extremely tough postseason awards. To give you an idea of how tough, this is who qualifies:
OUR TEAMS (first, second and honorable mention) include:
Offense: 2 Ends (receivers), 5 Offensive linemen, 3 running backs, 1 quarterback and 1 all-purpose player.
Defense: 3 or 4 defensive linemen, 4 or 5 linebackers, 3 or 4 defensive backs.
Special teams: 1 punter, 1 kicker
Some variations can be made, but that’s the basic format.
OUR REGION covers 49 teams.
We cover all 19 FCIAC and all 16 SWC teams.
In the SCC: We cover 10 of 20 teams: Law, Foran, Derby/O’Brien Tech, Fairfield Prep, Shelton, Amity, West Haven, Notre Dame-WH, Hamden, Hillhouse
In the NVL: We cover 3 of 12 teams: Ansonia, Seymour, Woodland
In the CSC : We cover Bullard-Havens
By no means is this a serious poll, but it is your chance to sit in my seat for a little while:
UPDATE, December 17: Our team will be released Friday, Dec. 21.
