The annual Star Tribune All-Metro football teams (first, second and third teams), along with a story about our Metro Player of the Year, will be announced in Tuesday's newspaper. The information will be posted here on GameFaceMn sometime this evening.
Our process is unchanged from past years. We bring together one coach from each metro conference -- generally the coach whose team won the league title -- for a dinner here at Star Tribune World Headquarters, followed by an evening of discussing all the top players. The coaches fill out ballots for each position as well as Player of the Year and our crack staff tabulates the votes.
This year's All-Metro teams are filled with outstanding athletes who have worked very hard to become the players they are. We do not take this responsibility lightly and we know there is no perfect method for postseason honors. But we like the way we handle this duty.
