:allhail: Right on Derek!!! :) Wow!!! You better be smiling too!

This is completely deserving and accurate. I look at all the other guys on first and second team and agree with them all. Got to agree with Drav too.
I hope this will have a completely positive, confidence boosting, effect on Drav...I think he needs a little confidence booster right now. I think he's been just a little off his shot lately. I'd just LOVE to see him get really hot right about NOW!!! It'd just be perfect. :drool: Having a first team Regional guy on your team will boost everyone's confidence I think...This IS a very good Zag team!!!:bishop_smiley:

ps I'm happy for Zag '79 too.

I don't see how Rodney didn't make the first team. He stats are ridiculous for a second year guy, and maybe that's just it, maybe the other are upper classmen. But jeez, the guy is a stud.

Excellent, and 'grats.

It's too early to post my All America teams, but he has a place in it.

--don't ask me why GU is in District 14 and EWU is in District 13)

I bet it is because whoever created the districts assumed that GU was in western Washington. Isn't everything in Western Washington?

Another GU/WCC coaches and refs conspiracy. Go Dons!

But Los Dorkos, isn't that the whole conference?
