We’re in the process of selecting the 2010 Tribune All-Area football team, which includes player and coach of the year and the top 25 position players, but there will be a twist, it will not be published in the newspaper. Instead, we’re publishing the all-area team in our TribXtra magazine that will run the first week of January and be available to all subscribers and those who wish to buy a copy from the racks or in our office at the Tribune. The magazine will include a first-ever prestigious San Gabriel Valley all-encompassing top 25 football players selected from the Tribune and Star-News coverage areas. The best part, however, is we will still honor and picture traditional all-area teams from the Tribune and Star-News. Essentially, what you have is three teams, the All-Encompassing all-area and the Tribune and Star-News all-area selections all in one magazine, which includes coach and player of the year from each area. There is not “one” player of the year from each area, instead, the cover will feature the player of the year from the Star-News and Tribune. With more space to work with, we also will select for the first time offensive and defensive players of the year, one each from the Star-News and Tribune coverage areas. It’s a huge project and a lot of fun, but we think the players, fans and families will enjoy it. When I get a firm publication date, I will pass it along.
