HOW THEY ARE CHOSEN The NOW sports staff contacts all coaches in its coverage area and asks for nominations. That information is put on a ballot to which NOW reporters add their own first-hand impressions of players. Each staff member then votes for the 10 players he feels should be on the team, ranking them from 10 to 1. Online votes are tabulated and count for a fifth of the final tally. The player with the most points is named the Player of the Year and the next 10 players are also named to the team. Those players receiving votes who do not make the team earn high honorable mention and those who are nominated but don’t receive votes earn honorable mention.
