The Southwestern League football coaches and Carl Galloway, athletic director of Vista Murrieta High School, recently met to go over the selections for the First and Second All-Southwestern League Offensive and Defensive teams. The first-place team always hosts the meeting with their school’s athletic director, which went the way of the Broncos during this shortened season.

Based on where an SWL team placed also determines how many selections that team will get. Also in play are the Most Outstanding player award, Co-Offensive and Co-Defensive awards, Outstanding Lineman award and the Outstanding Special Teams Player award.

For the Offensive Teams, Vista Murrieta has eight selections, Chaparral has six, Murrieta Valley has five, Great Oak and Temecula Valley have four and Murrieta Mesa has two. On the Defensive side of the ball, Vista Murrieta has eight selections, Chaparral has six, Murrieta Valley only has three, Great Oak and Temecula Valley have four and Murrieta Mesa has two.
