In determing the 2009 VirginiaPreps.com AA All-State 1st and 2nd teams and honorable mention awards, the VirginiaPreps.com staff used the following criteria, in addition to seeing various games throughout the season both in person and via video highlights and/or broadcasts.

  • Stats:  For the offensive skill positions (quarterback, running back, tight end & wide receiver) and special teams, we are usually able to track down season statistics for most areas of the state.  Defensive statistics (tackles, sacks, interceptions, etc.) are somewhat more sporadically tracked (and there are inconsistencies in how they are tracked, as well), so those play less of a role in the selections. 
  • Team Success and Playoffs:  These teams are selected based on both regular season and playoff performances. This does not mean that players whose teams missed the postseason are penalized; however, players whose teams make deep playoff runs and who play a significant role in that playoff success can see their stock rise.  In the end, we try to look at the numbers based on games played and contributions during those games.
  • All District and All Region Teams:  While both the all-district teams and all-region teams are used for reference, we try to be make objective selections based on the criteria listed above.  Some positions, such as offensive line, do rely more heavily on the all-district selections than others.
  • Positional Numbers:  This year, we selected the team with the same offensive and defensive positions as VirginiaPreps.com's AAA All-State team.  The biggest difference from last season's team was moving from three running backs on the 1st & 2nd teams to two running backs on each team.  On defense, we selected three defensive backs instead of four, but added an Athlete position to the defensive side.
