Each Preseason All-Region Team was put together carefully with hours of dedication. There are a multitude of factors considered when making these teams. I don’t take these lightly. When I say that I have spent weeks putting these together, I mean it.

If a certain player is not listed, that is not an indictment in any way of that player. Not everyone can make the team and I also may not know of every player. If you are a player reading this that didn’t make it, don’t be discouraged...instead, go prove I was wrong to leave you off of it this season.

I use the knowledge I already have of players, the film I’ve watched, interviews, grades, what coaches say about them, personal projections, and more to determine who makes it on there. Stats from previous seasons and current college offers play a role in the evaluation process, but more minimal roles compared to the other factors.

The map pictured below is how I break up the four regions.

With that said, here is the 2020 Preseason All-Pee Dee team for the Class of 2021...
