It's not the All American team. or even the ESPY's, but WTAP Sports will be unveiling its first annual All Mid Ohio Valley basketball team. And you get a say so on who makes the grade.
The WTAP Sports team (Anthony Lima and yours truly) has been all over the valley since the season started and we've seen the best of the best in basketball talent that the area has to offer. And we feel they deserve some special recognition. So in the final week of March we will be honoring an All Mid Ohio Valley Boys team and an All Mid Ohio Valley Girls team.
We want the input of area coaches and fans in the selection process. So beginning Monday March 16, you will be able to nominate players that you feel have earned a berth on the first annual All Mid Ohio Valley team. Each squad will include 15 players divided into a First team and a Second Team. There will be a nominating link on our webchannel, so you can enter the name of the best players that you have had the pleasure of watching this season
The teams will cross state and class lines. So you could have a Parkersburg South Patriot and a Waterford Wildcat both on the same team.
The All Mid Ohio Valley team will be profiled on WTAP News at Six and Eleven, and on wtap.com, and each player chosen will receive a trophy to acknowlege the honor
So do your part to start a new sports tradition with the first annual WTAP All Mid Ohio Valley Basketball team.
