The Washington State Football Coaches Association released all-state teams for the condensed spring 2021 high school football season on Thursday, a first for the organization.
Nominees were split into two teams: one covering 4A, 3A and 2A schools, the other encompassing 1A, 2B and 1B.
Players were selected by a nomination process that started with the eight WSFCA district commissioners sending “several” emails to coaches in their districts seeking nominees that had at least earned all-league recognition, Lakewood coach and District 1 representative Dan Teeter said.
The association initially hoped enough players would be nominated name teams for each classification, but settled with two teams when not enough players were nominated. Every nominated player were approached, Teeter said.
The WSFCA says its first all-state team won’t be its last. The Washington State Baseball Coaches Association and Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association also release postseason all-state teams.
