1     Player is a positive, supportive teammate who always gives their best effort and can be trusted to represent the team well in all situations.
2     Player who was named to the 23-player varsity roster
3     Player who was named to the 23-player developmental side (if they offer these games)
4     Player serving in a team manager role
5     Final priority given to players who completed their paperwork first
