RE: GETSOME10 Alpena basketball has been garbage for 10 years? Tell that to the District Championship banners hanging for the 2007 and 2008 teams. Tell that to the BNC Champion 2008 team. Maybe you need to "GETSOME" information before running your mouth.

This poll isn't talking about which team or class or division is better. It is talking about who is the best player in the area.

It has nothing to do with playing at a different level. It has to do with size.Class A has more.Class B has a little less and so on.

Last year. Back to back district champoinship games. We would've had to beat other Class A schools to get there. And we're the only Class A school around, aren't we? haha. and why would you bring up the football team? this is basketball man. We know are football program isn't very strong. But honestly in this argument, who cares.

Also Alpena boys basketball coach told our coach he would have loved to have Mason on his team because Mason is one of the best guards he has seen in awhile. I don't know if u know or not but Alpena and Hillmans coaches are great friends.. The coach knows best and he thinks Mason is a great guard

This is the first year that the Alpena Boys Basketball team has had more than like 10 wins.. Alpena is the worst Class A team around judging by the last 10 years. You guys have one good season and you think that's good?*****something's wrong there! When has ur football team won more than 4 games? Except for this year when was the last time ur boys basketball team had a good season? Not lately! I think that if we played you in basketball this year an played ball like we know we could, we would of hung in with you and possibly beat you! Idk if we would beat you but we could hang right in there. And yes Mason is better than alot of ur guards!

Maybe the news should specify the criteria for this award? Also consider one for each class of school? A,B,C,D. Obviously schools that are larger should be better with tougher competition. Northern Michigan will always lag behind the areas who have the facilities to support year round bball. Either way all these guys are great players that were nominated.

This entire argument about cordes being a better player than van pamel simply because of class is ridiculous. Classes are made so teams play schools at their level. Of course alpena blew out tawas a class c school. When you have thousands of kids to choose from and the other team has 300 of course you will have a better team. What you are saying is basically like saying luke cordes is better than michigans mr basketball monte morris because morris is class c. What vanpamel did in the regional final game was amazing. One player can't do everything and vanpamel did everything he could to get his team into quarterfinals. Learn more about basketball before you attack teammates of these kids trying to get their guy to win. Ritchie 24 was just rooting for his guy and trying to defend his points even though it was a bad attempt, there is noo reason to attack a kid likke that

If we're talking about the player of the year, then why are you getting mad over how good a team does. Either way, Alpena plays better competition, it's obvious. And "GetSome10", worst class A school, thats weird that we manage to, what you think, "upset", so many teams this year and close the season on a 10 game winning streak. Ending 18-5 was it?

Sorry for the confusion, but that was not directed towards you. My last comment was in regards to TheNative's viewpoint.

You clearly do not understand the concept of why MHSAA categorizes schools as Class A, B, C, and D. The whole point is so that similar size schools play other schools that are of similar size. Alpena < Most other class A teams. Alcona > Most other class C teams (their 3 in a row district titles proves it). Hillman > Most other class D teams (their regional finals appearance proves it). Do understand now? Class A Alpena plays class A teams, they lose. Class C Alcona plays class C teams, they win. Class D Hillman plays class D teams, they win. Checkmate.

You can't say Alpena is bad when they would beat all the teams that the other players are from. If you're saying Alpena is bad then you must be saying Hillman Atlanta and Alcona teams are absolute garbage

Alpena has always been good at basketball? When is the last time they won a district title? I believe Alcona has won 3 in a row and Hillman just lost in the regional final game, something Alpena hasn't seen in quite some time.

You're so wrong kid, you look stupid by saying this. Just stop. Alpena has always been good at basketball. One on one basketball means absolutely nothing about how good someone is in a game. He's not even the best guard in the area let alone best player.

Class A basketball.. I bet any money that Mason could play one on one with any of u guards and beat them. Maybe we should get together some day huh? Alpena is terrible. Worst Class A school I have ever seen. U guys make it to District Finals one year and you think your good? No... You guys are absolutely horrible at basketball and football for being Class A.

You can also vote as much as you want so that statement is completely irrelevant.

We're not worried about this, that's why. He's the best player and area and should win it. We're not going around telling everyone to vote because we know he's the best.

If Cordes is that great of a player,shouldn't the city of Alpena be able to rally more votes than you have? I'm not dissing Cordes because I've not seen him play.At the very least you need to give it up for Hillman when their fans put up 10% more votes for their player than Alpena which is 15 times larger than Hillman.
