CHOOSING THE TEAM
The 2013 All-Central Texas football team was drawn primarily from high school players within the five-county Austin metropolitan area, which consists of Travis, Williamson, Hays, Bastrop and Caldwell counties.
The American-Statesman’s high school sports staff — reporters Danny Davis and Rick Cantu and editor James Wangemann — reviewed nominations from area coaches and studied all-state and all-district teams to determine the final selections.
