First congratulations to those players selected as 1st and/or 2nd team or received honorable mention for their respective sections! Congratulations as well to the players and coaches who were selected to represent their section as section player and section coach of the year!!! Here is the list of section player and coach of the year:
POY - Baylend Stephens/Mogollon
COY - Tim Slade/Mogollon
POY - Laramie Wolfe/Duncan
COY - Tony Luzania/Valley Union
POY - Casey Jeans/Bagdad
COY - Dalton Mills/Bagdad
POY - Tanner Conover/Gilbert Christian
COY - Willie Jordan/Ray
POY - Kyron Newton/Valley Lutheran
COY - Lonnie Guthrie/Ajo
I think every player selected was worthy of their selection. I am puzzled by two of the coaching selections. No disrespect intended to coach Guthrie but Ajo goes 1-7 and somehow that earns "coach of the year"? IMO coach Wolfe was the better choice. And how does Ray's Wllie Jordan beat out Gilbert Christian's Larry Cain? Gilbert Christian wasn't expected to do much this year after losing last years senior class. Ray went from 7-1 last year to 5-3 this year. Just one opinion. Again congratulations to all selected!
