There are no qualifications. There are many All State teams but two that are considered the ligit version (arguements expected). The Texas High School Coaches Association & the Texas Sports Writers Association. Both are selected by High School Coaches help by turning in their stats and the Sports writers have the ability to turn in names that weren't turned in by a coach. Phone calls and such from writers to coaches do occur. Politics as always plays a part. Most kids deserving do get on one or the other and sometimes both. Also coaches can nominate players from other schools during these conversations with writers. Rest assured there will be plenty of players not on it that should be and some on it that shouldnt. An impossible task to make everyone happy. The state tournament also has an all tournament team. Any player selected to play in the All Star game in Roundrock next weekend is automatically on it. 1A through 5A. Hope this helps.
