The Arizona Football Coaches Association announced last week its 3A Conference All-State team selections, but will wait until February to make public the seniors chosen to participate in the annual 1A-3A North vs. South All-Star game to be played in June.
The all-stars were chosen during a coaches meeting on Dec. 18.
Those players chosen to the 3A All-State team will be honored at an awards luncheon to be held Jan. 7 at the Scottsdale Hilton Resort.
No Payson players were named to the all-state team, even though the Horns had at least two strong candidates in Payson Herring and Westin Gibson.
The two, however, could still be selected to play in the AzFCA All-Star game.
