Each year, 22 members of the Maryland media scene are offered a chance to vote for All-State honors. Each day from now until the ballot is released to the media, we are sharing the names of the players nominated. It is important to note that ADDITIONAL NAMES ARE ADDED EVERY DAY until the ballot is complete. The players generally are added as local all-stars are released, thus some regions may not be represented in this update. Players earn nomination to the All-State ballot by being named to certain all-county, all-league and all-conference first teams and/or through coach's recommendation.
Below is the inaugural list of Small School nominees:
