Changes in OHSLA Honors for 2021

May 14th, 2021 

The following is a memo sent to coaches this evening regarding 2021 OHSLA Honors for players. 
Dear Coaches:

At our weekly OHSLA Board Meeting last night, the Officers discussed post season awards including All-Conference, All-State, All-American and Academic All-American selections.  2021 was a compressed season, with travel limitations, and team quarantines which resulted in very little inter-conference play, muddled LaxNumber rankings and finally concluded with no state championship.  So the OHSLA Board was unanimous in its decision to move forward with post season player recognition as follows:
  • All-Conference Team selections will be at the discretion of each conference.  Conferences may choose to select an All-Conference team as in prior years or may elect not to select an All-Conference team this season.  Conferences that do decide to have an All-Conference team, can have on of their Coach Representatives submit the player information to OHSLA usual online process by Friday, May 21 which will allow players full visibility for the season.  Conference Reps will be contacted directly on the submittal process.
  • All-State Team selections will not be held this season.
  • All-America selections will not be held this season.
  • Academic All- America selections will be held this season consistent with current OHSLA criteria as posted on the OHSLA web page.  The nomination period is now closed.  Selection criteria will be reviewed in the off-season for possible changes in the 2022 season. 
Thank you all for your continued support and patience as we navigate through the ups and downs of this COVID shortened season.  Best of luck in your games through the remainder of the season.
