    bayliss treen is first team all FCIAC to Matt Shannons 2nd team. Yet he is not on the list. Both are amazing players, its just interesting to see how things change from in to out of league perception.

      Perhaps it has something to do with limits for how many all americans a team can have. Darien already has 4, so maybe they couldn’t get any more. Regardless, I would have thought that if Darien got 4 all-americans, Treen would be one of them, along with leading scorer Richard Gregory.

    • It Depends says:

      In fact, I thought being on your All-League’s First Team list was also a requirement for selection to the AA Team?
      And there is no rule regarding a number limitation per school. Both Darien and Wilton have had 5 AA’s represented in one year in the past.

    Jimmy Joe Granito from NC shouldve been an AA

    Congrats to all.
