I noticed this is a Pennsylvania team, not just a PIAA team.  Hence Duke recruit Cam Reddish being player of the year.  His school doesn’t play in the PIAA.

I think he starts, but they might bring him off the bench.

Sometimes I wonder who votes in these. Not that I disagree with any but it seems like they only post ppg. I know that is important but what about rebounds, assist and defense/steals. A lot of these players scored a lot but it may have been because their teammates got the rebound or set a screen...made a nice pass. Also, what about those kids who play on a terrible team, I have seen a lot of good players struggle because they have no help on the court.

Who votes on the teams? Do they really see all these kids play? Or it is just who you know and if your team makes a deep playoff run?

Just taking a wild guess here.  Maybe someone can shed some light on this.
With the announcement being from the Associated Press Sports Writers, so I'd imagine they conduct the voting.  To my knowledge the Altoona Mirror is an Associated Press contributor, the Tribune-Democrat might be as well.  Point being, they probably get a vote or votes depending on their subscription/coverage area/etc.  I'd imagine they take their 1st team selections to the nomination process of the Associated Press.  Mirror first teamers were: Ruggery, Holsinger, Haupt, Dillow, & Trent Walker.  Ruggery, Holsinger, & Dillow received all-state honors.  Johnstown coverage received Britt, Zimmerman, & Instone as all-state.
If points per game was the factor you would a lot of other players on the list.  Regardless, you can argue a player should be on the list.  I'd like to think our area was represented very well.  Ruggery, Holsinger, Dillow had some monster nights on some pretty big stages.  I think that may very well have had some influence.  Ruggery & Holsinger had big performances a lot of nights in the LHAC.  Dillow had some monster nights against Hollidaysburg & Everett.
This is just a theory or possible reasoning.  Thoughts
