Who's the best of the best. Well, you'll find out in the next few weeks.
The Galveston County Daily News' annual All-County team selections will be announced before the end of the year for the high school volleyball and football seasons.
Volleyball comes first. The All-County teams will be released in Sunday's edition, along with the All-District selection for area squads. Friendswood made the deepest run this year, going all the way to the state tournament before falling in the semifinals. Clear Falls also went deep in its first season of Class 5A competition.
The All-County football teams will be released the last Sunday of the year on Dec. 29. La Marque was the cream of the crop in the county this season as the only area team playing on to the third round. In all, seven teams made the postseason, and there were some standout athletes on the squads that didn't qualify for the playoffs.
First Team, Second Team and Honorable Mention selections will be announced for each sport, with individual honors for The Daily News' Player of the Year, Offensive Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year.
Make sure to grab a paper Sunday to see who was named the county's elite.
