All-Sunflower Slate football

The first All-Sunflower Slate football team is comprised of players from the schools in our coverage area — four MIAA teams, 10 teams from the KCAC and eight schools in the Jayhawk. My fear going in was that the team would skew toward the MIAA or the Jayhawk more than the KCAC, but it didn’t turn out that way at all.
