Academic All-State? Empty Academic All-State?

I have seen several posts on Twitter about kids being selected to an academic All-State team. I didn't think those nominations were due until February.

What are these academic All-State teams these kids are being selected to? I can't find anything online.

I don't know about this year, but in the past they were always due around week two of the playoffs.

The posts you saw were probably IHSFCA academic all state...it's a certificate to print from their website. As long as a kid has the academic requirements and is 1st team all conference they garner that award. 3.5 GPA I believe is the main academic requirement

Lefty is correct. 3.5 and first team AC makes it automatic as long as the coach stand it in. They used to mail the certificates to the head coach.

Actually, the last few years, the IHSFCA has the certificate on their website. You're just supposed to download it and it seems it's pretty much on an honor system. Our athletic department secretary just prints it on a nice piece of card stock and we laminate them to present at our awards banquet. There's a chance his coach just may not realize he qualified via the academic requirements. Worth a question. It's a nice honor for sure!

You might be able to be an IHSFCA All-Stater too (or at least honorable mention)

Last season I had a player who did not qualify - he was not all-conference, his head coach (me) did not nominate him, and he was not on our league list of eligible players.

The lists come out and he is named honorable mention all-state. I mention this to the IHSFCA folks and they say as long as he is not on the all-state team we don't care.

His dad claimed he had no idea how it happened, but another coach must have nominated him. When I mentioned I have served on that committee four times and I know how it works and that other coaches do not nominate other players - he shrugged and walked away. I let it go because by that time I knew I was resigning as head coach.

So his dad got him IHSFCA Honorable Mention All-State? Or was this Honorable Mention Academic All-State?

That's crazy...so the dad took it upon himself to contact the IHSFCA and told them his son should be HM All-State? And there wasn't any kind of vetting process?

I'm surprised that more parents haven't done this! 😆

My last game was in 1973. Is it too late for me?

Given the lack of checks in the system - almost certainly not too late!
