Official All-Area release dates … unless they’re changed again

In an effort to ensure color print for the traditional back-page full of football player mugshots/capsules, the release date for the all-area football was moved from Christmas to Saturday. That jumbled some of the other target dates.
As of Thursday morning, the latest target dates for the remaining three fall sports (boys/girls cross country and volleyball teams have already been released) are:

Boys water polo, Friday, Dec. 25
Football, Saturday, Dec. 26
Girls tennis, Tuesday, Dec. 29

Enjoy and feel free to express opinions, as I know you will.
Remember, please keep them short and to the point. Personal attacks about the players selected will not be allowed.

It’s scary, but how about this senario …. ?

Last week of the regular football season.
How’s for a possible scenario?

California (5-0) defeats La Serna (2-3);
Pioneer (2-3) defeats Santa Fe (2-3) ;
Whittier (2-3) defeats El Rancho (2-3).

La Serna defeated Santa Fe, Whittier; lost to Cal, Pioneer, El Rancho.
Pioneer defeated La Serna, Santa Fe; lost to California, El Rancho, Whittier.
Santa Fe defeated Whittier, El Rancho; lost California, Pioneer, La Serna.
Whittier defeated El Rancho, Pioneer; lost to California, La Serna, Santa Fe.
El Rancho defeated Pioneer, La Serna; lost to California, Whittier, Santa Fe.

California defeated everyone.

You figure it out.
Is it a double coin flip to determine the league’s second and third place entries for the playoffs.?
