    How can you not have any MPC kids on this list, A QB who was Offensive player of the year in the region is snubbed by a kid who didn’t take a snap, No disrespect to Darlington Qb who is a great player but come on? Why not have a TE spot ..MPC TE is one if not the best in Private A, OT all Region two years in a row, C who is one of the best, and a transfer WR who was 7A all region kid??? Someone has no love for Mt. Paran….that just more fuel for them heading into the season….Congrats to all that made hope they all have great seasons…

  3. David Bertrand from Mount Pisgah is the number 1 ranked long snapper in the class of 2021 in the entire country, but does not even make honorable mention?

    1. I don’t do long snappers for All-State

    How is Mount Parans QB and TE not on this list?

    1. Jackson Manning is listed on HM. Maybe I should bold his name?
