Knowing we might have a little down time before the playoffs get under way, I sent out a survey to the Section 1 coaches this week. It’s just a fun thing, so let’s not get too crazy about the answers. They were allowed to vote for a player on their own team. And there’s no way I’m sharing with anyone how individuals voted.
Not every coach responded, which is fine, but we did get enough to list the top three answers to each question. Enjoy. Do not disparage any of these picks. Add some names if you have a favorite player that deserves a mention.
