If this is the case, then the coaches should be allowed to go ahead and say 'since I get X number of kids on the all district team, I will go ahead and choose who gets it from my team along with the input of my staff'. I don't necessarily like it, but that is what I hear pretty much is the deal anyway. I think it defeats the purpose of even having a vote, except for maybe the POY and COY.
