Twelve of the 36 players on the ESPNHS All-American Teams participated in the Nolan Showcase in 2011.
The winter high school girls' season might be limited in the number of states that play, but the depth of talent is staggering.
This year's ESPNHS Winter All-America selections, 36 in all, features 33 players who have committed to NCAA Division I programs, one headed to an NCAA Division II power and a pair of juniors who have yet to commit. No fewer than 10 of the players have been part of the U.S. youth national pool.
Five ESPNHS Winter first-team members led their team to state or sectional titles. All 12 players helped their teams into the POWERADE FAB 50 for at least one week this season.
California led the way with 17 selections, followed by Texas with 12, Florida with five and Arizona and Hawaii with one each.
The ESPNHS Winter All-America team is compiled using a combination of players’ high school performance, coaching and media recommendations, and recruiting details. These players hail from winter-playing high school soccer programs. ESPN RISE waits until after all local all-star teams are named before releasing its All-America list in order to provide adequate research time.
