Here is the best of the best in 5A. These players will not only help their squads make a run for a state title this season, many may help their future squad take a shot at college bowl glory as well.

Here is the best of the best in 5A.  As is often the case, players from the state‚Äôs top programs dominate the team and although these players are worthy of All-State honors, this senior dominated squad is more concerned about league and state titles.
