2012-2013 ESPN NH's All-State Team Announced

As many of you know by now, WGAM the Game has been sold and is now called, 'ESPN New Hampshire'. The staff of the station's high school sports coverage got together and voted on some end-of-season-awards. The awards were for Player of the Year, Coach of the Year and 1st Team, 2nd Team and 3rd Team all-state picks.

Players and coaches from any division were eligible for selection. Votes were submitted on Sunday and Monday, so regular season AND tournament play was considered by the voters. The voters were Sean Sendall, Chris Shuker, Joe Marchilena, Chris DeTurk, Nick Anastos, Rich Flerra, Nick Montecalvo, and yours truly Jeremy Leveille.

  1. I think the 1st and 2nd teams are spot on! Nice job. Is there any consideration for similar selections for the girls?
