The Gazette sports department selects the members of its All-Gazette teams in every sport where at least half of the public schools in the county compete. Selections are based on the observations of journalists, but nominations from coaches and athletic directors are encouraged.
There are three criteria staff considers: First, season statistics; Second, value to the team; Third, future prospects.
The number of spots available per team is limited to the number of starters, or players who score points in competition. Also, all the starting positions must be represented.
