    They need to come up with a better system of selecting the best and most deserving players. Like last year, when Ka’u had almost the entire team on selected to the All Star team, I can’t believe the two worst teams in the league have that much All Stars! If thats the case, they would have won more games. Seriously, Yamaguchi on the Honorable Mention? No Salzman or Williams? Form a selection committee made up of sports writers and a representative from the Officiating crew (conduct and sportsmanship), have the Head Coach from each team nominate a player(s) to represent the team for input. Final voting and selection done by the selection committee.

      Doesn’t anyone see the obvious? You don’t need to be someone with behind the scenes info. Look at the list! Salzman and Williams did not make the All-BIIF team . Both should of made honorable mention or better. However, the other coaches couldn’t even vote for them because they were not even nominated by their own coach!

      Now look at the coach of the year! Baldwin coach of the year? No! Why not? Coach Baldwin who went 10-2, is beat out by a coach who is 0-3? Maybe three of the division 1 coaches were completely exacerbated by the actions of the other one.

      The student-athletes play all year for their Coach and Team. At the end of the season its time, for their coach to represent them, to help reward his players for their success and hard work. No matter the politics or the pain in the behind it is, the coach needs to represent his student-athletes, to the best of his ability. It may not be a big deal to Coach Baldwin. However, I am sure it is to the young men who may never play another game of football!

      I am tired of biting my lip. Keeping my mouth shut! No one seems to want to say it out loud! Coach Baldwin is not Coach of the Year simply because he failed to represent the student-athletes who played for him!

    Congratulations to all who made the All-BIIF Football Awards. But it doesn’t make it any less for those players who work and played hard, who truly belong and deserve to be on. The fans would know. Better system and room for improvement? Most certainly!

      That is exactly why we need a new unbiased system of picking the best and most deserving athletes. This happens every year on all sports and happening at its worse on Oahu in the OIA white division All Star selections. The kids ultimately suffer at the selfish and egotistical hands of coaches, players coaches and opponents coaches with personal agenda’s. My understanding is that the Head Coach will list the players from his team that he feels are deserving. That right there is a problem and has been a problem for years now, and until that changes, we will be having these chats every season.
