    Only saw five of them play, and haven't seen Hollingsworth since last year, but I'm cool with the list. Wilson is still my favorite Purple, but Taylor had a nice enough career that I can't be mad.

    I'm not familiar with the kid from Russellville, but the rest of the list looks solid to me. Good to see The Jake on there.

    Faulkner is the only one I haven't seen in person but I've heard great things. Solid list for sure.

    Are we allowed to say Player A should have made it before Player B?

    Trevon Faulkner is well deserved. List over all, I've only seen about half, looks good. I might have put Steven Fitzgerald on there and I'm curious to know how far from making the list you would say he was?

    Peyton Broughton, Peyton Gover and Steven Fitzgerald all had to be close to making this list. Good list.

    It just seems to me that in the state all together that the margin between 1 thru about 40 is minor. I don't think any of the guys on the team are far superior than let's say a Kel Stotts. I don't think we have a dominant player maybe other than Hollingsworth. Certain parts of the state are gonna get more benefit of the doubt when selecting All State and All Star teams. Kinda seems like that's we the way we did business this year. So kudos to you for coming up with this team.....must have been difficult.

    If I know @Clyde as well as I think I do I believe that was a rhetorical question.

    I can't speak for the rest of the committee but IMO Fitzgerald had more help than Faulkner so Faulkner got more of a boost to make this team than Fitzgerald. I looked more at how each individual player impacted their team's success when trying to compile a list of 10 players who had outstanding seasons. @dognation 2 nailed it in his post. There is a minor margin of difference between 1-40. I feel like I could make a legitimate argument for Peyton Gover and Noah Young to be on this list along with Fitzgerald and many many others throughout the state.

    This time it was an actual question.

    No

    But you are more than welcome to talk about other great players that are worthy.

    This list has to be almost impossible to put together. Thanks for your time. There are many great players throughout this state and these are a good representation of that talent. Kudos!

    Hoping next year to see more WKy players on that list. I realize that they will have to take their game to the next level to do so however.
