The NCHSAA season is nearly upon us (finally!) The last thing to do before we kick off our in season coverage is to release our preseason all-state teams.

A few notes: While we do take into account college potential, these teams are based on our projections for this season. We expect the players on this list to have big years, due to both past production and future potential. We also included more than 11 players on each side of the ball to account for multiple schemes and alignments (For example, our “hybrid” on defense is for players that are somewhere between a linebacker and a defensive back)

So, without any further fanfare, here are our 4A/4AA first and second All-State teams.
