With only one local team still playing — Class A regional champion Byram Hills — I’ve started to lay out my choices for our annual all-star teams, and there are tough decisions to be made at every position. I’m going to make my own all-star selections for both Westchester/Putnam and Rockland, but this year, we’re also planning to print two teams selected entirely by YOU, the fans.
We’ll start today with our polls for the Westchester/Putnam team, and I’ll be back later in the week with our choices for Rockland. The Dutchess team will be selected by our friends at the Poughkeepsie Journal. What I’ve done to get the conversation started is give you my top 10 players at forward and defense, top 12 at midfield and top six at goalkeeper. But as you’ll see, you also have the option to write-in a player who you think we may have overlooked. Any players who played in Westchester and/or Putnam counties are eligible. The final results will be printed in The Journal News on Nov. 30.
Vote now, vote later, vote as often as you’d like…
