3A SUPER ALL STATE

3A Super All-State.

3A SUPER ALL STATE (all heights are teams listings)
 
Guard- Porter Caldwell, 6-1, Snowflake
   People in Snowflake will forever talk of Caldwell's exploits on the gridiron and hardwood.  From his 41 in the playoff loss to MV last year, to the 47 points against 5a bigdog Marcos De Niza, to the 50 spot he put on Seton at state this year. The most prolific scorer in the 3a since the Bobby Manheimer/Brian Holliday days.
 
Guard- Devin Dugi, 6-5, Tuba City
   Dugi began the year on this list, then played himself off, but then played himself back on with a stellar playoff run.  He was simply TC's ONLY offensive option in yet another AWA run.
 
Wing- Mike Radanovich, 6-0, Globe
   Great all around game. There isn't anything he cannot do. Shoot from the outside? Check. Handle the ball? Check. Take it hard to the hoop? Check. Get garbage hoops and hustle baskets? Check. I could go on....
 
Post- Mike Barr, 6-6, Payson
   As I said before, the most physically imposing high school kid I've seen in a while. A man child at 6-6 and a RIPPED 225 pounds. He just physically dominated all opponents.  Payson moves to the 4a next year, so he gets to beat up on the big boys next.
 
Post- Sy Tomerlin, 6-5, Globe
   He burst on to the scene in last years playoffs, and in my opinion, outplayed hyped counterpart Messman in Globe's AWA last year.  This year he was simply the best post in the 3a.  He has a great allround game for a big man.  He scores inside and outside with efficiency and swats plenty of shots on defense.
 
Sixth Man- Kyle Phillips, 6-3, Monument Valley
   The 3a north player of the year.  Phillips is another player that can fill any role. At 6-3 he was forced to play the post for the undersized Mustangs, but his versatility was shown as he led MV in threepointers.
 
3a Player of the Year- Mike Radanovich
   It was hard to pick between Radanovich and Tomerlin for the POY, but since Radanovich was voted by coaches as the 3a south player of the year, I went with their pick. Globe really had three players (Radanovich, Tomerlin, along with Clark Bennett) that were simply dominant and too much for any 3a team too handle. Some teams may have had one player close to their ability, but no one had three guys in their class.
