    Another yes vote for Academic All-Conference. Let's do what we can to encourage the "student" component of student-athlete.

    I'm with you cap8fan. I always enjoy Tom Suiter's extra effort award and any story that celebrates academic achievement/community service by a talented athlete. As much as I hated watching Josh Joyner run all over us in the playoffs, it was hard not to respect his achievements on and off the field (he was highlighted in a Tom Suiter segment the week before CG played Hunt)

    That sums up one of the problems with high school athletics. Everyone talks about the importance of education but nobody wants to recognize or celebrate it. I would like to see how many players who are All-Conference are also Academic All-Conference as well.

    Other then parents, who is interested in that?

    Is there anywhere that Academic All-Conference players are listed for each team?

    I recall a backlash of negativity from people last year when this was announced.
    This may be a deterrent also.

    My point being they are probably having difficulties deciding who to put on the teams because of the number of teams and the number of talented players.

    What is your point here? Some kids might be left off, so we should leave them all off.

  • jmbsr1 Dec 28, 2012

    Its hard when there are so many talented kids. Some will be left off that are well deserving just like some were in all conference teams.

    Nick, are you letting this thing die? I thought it was great. #1 it extended football, #2 it gave kids more recognition #3 it was a nice way to blend the area.
