The 87th All-Southern football team, selected by the Sentinel's panel of experts, is a compilation of the best players in 12 Southern states. Mitch Mustain (above) of Springdale, Ark., is the Player of the Year.
Production, not potential, is the key to being selected. Players are recognized for their play on the field; thus, this is not necessarily a "top prospects" list. Our experts are: Bill Buchalter and Buddy Collings, Orlando Sentinel; Jody Demling, Louisville (Ky.) Courier-Journal; Bill Bumgarner, New Orleans Times-Picayune; Bill Spencer, Jackson (Miss.)
