Please send all-region teams to GHSF Daily at email@example.com and we will post them on ajc.com. We recommend that all-region teams include the year in school of each player. All-region players who are recognized as underclassmen have a better chance of being recruited and getting recognition on preseason all-area or all-state teams in 2013.
