There were certainly deserving players left off the team since it is limited to 13 players. Leading the list of players left off the list were Justin Mitchell of Wayne High School, Ernie Duncan of Evansville Harrison High School and Aaron Brennan of Guerin Catholic. I thought there were 9 locks for the team and then the final four spots could go in many different directions. Everyone on the team is worth the selection though.
