[QUOTE=Unregistered;2612135]It's hard to admit there is a big difference between D 1 and D 3 players. They could have perfect season as a team...but... those players can't compare to D 1 talent. Same with D 1 and D 2. Not as drastic yet still not up to par with D 1.
We have witnessed over the years (through realignment) players who thrived in D2 could not do as well in D1. Here and there maybe a player or two. For the most part, no way.
That's my opinion[/QUOTE]

You are talking about teams going up to D1 from D2 - not individual players?

And we are talking about a few players - point is the all state awards are LIMITED to D2 and D3, based on the division, not based on individual talent yet these are individual awards. Ive never quit gotten that.

There's absolutely every chance you could have a great club soccer player on a D3 team who is better than some All State players but doesn't get that recognition b/c of division being played in. This is the reason they HAVE all division awards. However, I would agree there's too many of them and its a bit much.

I agree, a team like Pilgrim with a large girl enrollment and elect to stay in Division II, should accept that by choosing to stay in Div II that the result will be less chance at an All State opportunity.

You think the AD and coach really care about an individual player award when they are thinking the options are between a shot at a state championship (even if in a lower division) vice being a bottom feeder by moving up?

Yes you could have a D3 or D2 club player that is thriving in those divisions. But... very rarely are they as good as the D1 players. This debate has gone on for years. Last time it was the girl from TG that went to PC. Absolutely lit it up in D2 but Could NOT in D1. Just saying.

How can you categorize talent by the school a kid plays for? There very well could be a player in D3 who absolutely could be a top talent in a D1 school. A kids talent shouldn't be assessed by his/her school uniform. If soccer in RI did what basketball does, an all star game would be fun to mix these kids up. The debate means nothing if you can't actually see these players on the same field.

Right.... That is exactly why the coaches have scrapped the banquet and are looking forward to improve the system. Less awards and possibly an all star game instead of a banquet.
Let's face it, more than half the girls at that banquet received participation awards. Why bother?
