We at Grassroots Media are excited to announce our second annual All-Greene County football team.

The team was selected by the Grassroots Media staff with input from local coaches. Selections are based on performance and production during the 2022 season.

We were fortunate to see all five Greene County teams make the playoffs this season, and some of them did so in historic fashion. With that came some truly spectacular seasons turned in by a plethora of great players, which meant there were a lot of worthy candidates to choose from. Selections were not taken lightly, but our staff watched more games than anybody else, did more interviews than anybody and broke down more film than anybody else, and because of that we feel like we have given you the best team we can to represent Greene County football.

So without further ado, here is your Grassroots Media All-Greene County football team, the offense.
