It isn't my role to knock other players-that isn't why I wrote in-it's to see what our school is doing wrong. There was not one kid from Reedsburg in the all state team. How do you go to state and win it and beat the Div II team without a couple of horses on your team?
Reedsburg had an outstanding TEAM effort. Chad Mazur could have been a candidate for some HM recognition, but there were some pretty QB's left off as it was. Matt Lennon was still outstanding, but didn't put up the stats he did last year. Shane Rockweiler was very good at linebacker, but defense is one of the toughest positions to picks kids at. Nate Brey and Seth Brandt also were very good. Ultimately, keep in mind to get on any of these lists a player has to be named 1st team all-conference. Reedsburg only had four kids total that were 1st team all-conference (Mazur, Brey, Rockweiler, Archambo).
Your right it was a team effort-but why only 4 on 1st team when they beat the team with most of the number one picks?
In the words of Yoda...One game does not a 1st-team All-Conference player make...
Yoda-you have got to be kidding right? It was not just one game-they won state! What game would you be talking about?
You referenced one game and made it sound as if more people deserved AC honors because of it. Not real hard to understand.
As if I wasn't already annoyed by Reedsburg fans after their over-indulgent celebration of the Waunakee win, now there's this.
You got the whole pie, enjoy it. Don't be a pissant about All-Conference and All-State honors. Reedsburg's conference was very good, with lots of good players, and there are more great players state-wide, some whose teams just weren't very good.
Savor the fact that your team had 20+ kids who were good enough to all have a major hand in winning a state championship...Most teams (and great players along with them) aren't as fortunate.
I just hate it when somebody from a state championship starts sniffing out individual recognition (claiming that because they won state someone must have been snubbed) but can't present a justifiable case for even a single player. This topic should have ended after Travis's second post.
Your post was very telling and informative. As I left Camp Randall on November 20th I wished good luck to every purple Waunakee shirt I saw because I thought that it was awesome the two Badger North teams did so well. I think that it is interesting that you feel that the Reedsburg fans were "over-indulgent" with the Waunakee win-I didn't know that was possible on the home field-if you didn't like the celebration-you should not have stayed. You should have seen the crowds at DeForest and Oregon when they beat us this year. Good for them-they played better than us. We did get the whole pie and it was as sweet as yours-but a nagging question always will loom and that was my question stated earlier. I was not "sniffing out" recognition simply stating the obvious. This post is for the kids that are coming up that will be overlooked by the same people in the same positions, doing the same things to do the self-promotion that they feel is coming to them because they feel self-important. You can hate all you want if that makes you feel better than all the rest of us in the Badger Conference or in high school football period. I'm not going to mention people's names-I don't have their permission and I cannot speak for them. You know who they are. I only hope that you are not the future of high school football-because that would be a shame, as you seem to have a great deal of hate and ire stored within your thoughts. AND last time I checked this is a forum and I do have the right to my opinion.
