    Patrick. On Wyopreps it has Austin Paterson and not Bo Paterson. Did they both make it or is one list wrong?

    Hi Riverton,

    When I look at the 3A all-state list on Wyopreps, it says Bo Patterson… So I’m not sure what to tell you.

    You’re right. I looked at it a half hour ago I thought it said Austin. My bad!

  4. Patrick on November 25, 2013 at 9:55 pm said:

    All good. I appreciate all those who have my back!

    I’m curious about the format for this year’s all conference and all state teams. In the past, there’s been a first team, a second team, and an honorable mention for both levels, but I don’t see it published that way this year. Did they change it?

  6. Patrick on December 5, 2013 at 6:14 am said:

    Each classification handles its all-state and all-conference selections differently. Which classification are you referring to?


  7. Wyofootballfan on December 5, 2013 at 6:51 pm said:

    I guess I’d be referring to 4A…

  8. Patrick on December 6, 2013 at 6:24 am said:

    Wyofootballfan: I think what happened in 4A was that, previously, if you made first-team all-conference, you were given second-team all-state. I think they’ve eliminated that, so now first-team all-conference doesn’t guarantee any state-level recognition.

    At least that’s my take from looking at the teams the past few years. I’m not sure about this, but that’s how it has looked to me.


  9. Patrick:

    As far as the 2nd team and honorable mention selections; the Wyoming Coaches Association recognizes the 1st team all-conference selections in every classification, as they are the athletes that are allowed to be on the ballot for the WCA All-State award. The 1st team All-State is the only team recognized with an award from the WCA.

    It is the job of the classification coaches to disseminate the names of the 2nd teamers and HM players from their respective classes or conferences. I’m positive there were selections made at both levels by all classifications.
