All-Met Watch | Football

Previous: Preseason | Week 1

The All-Met process is starting to pick up steam as some teams reach the season's midpoint this weekend. Here is our updated All-Met Watch first team. Throughout the week, you can vote on our picks, and each week we will select a new team. This week's movers include offensive linemen Jimmy Long of Battlefield and Nick Appel of O'Connell, whose teams are off to undefeated starts. As in the past, the final selections will rest with The Post high school sports staff, which bases its assessment on interviews with coaches and on players' performances in games covered by the staff.
