How do you know when someone scores the “Goal of the Year?”

That’s a good question. You get into the college levels and professional leagues with all their camera and video and fancy stuff, and it’s easier to archive and remember a goal that stood out. BUT, if you cover sports at the prep level, you have to rely on your memory — and in some cases, I think that is a much truer way of defining the best goal of the season. I decided to award my Goal of the Year to Angela Knowles of Aragon and you can read why by clicking on the page below — it just had a ton of factors that made it the best.

We’ll be selecting our Players of the Year soon. And I think we’re going to go ahead and do the All-Daily Journal teams. Gulp. Here come the angry emails. Actually, now that I think about it, it might make for a fun blog post. Lesson #28 for being a Prep Sports Journalist: Thick skin.
