Each year at the end of the regular season, coaches from each respective conference meet and decide which players should be rewarded as a result of their performances. As the postseason draws near, Adam Ayalew will reveal his 6A North Region All-Conference selections. Below are his picks from the Liberty District.

Player of the Year: Nate Shafer – Langley

Swarthmore commit Nate Shafer anchored the Saxons defense as they held opponents to under 42 points per game in conference play where they were 11-1. Despite what seems like a modest average of 12 points per game, the 6-foot-5 center demonstrates advanced feel for the game on both ends of the floor. He’ recorded multiple double-doubles and most recently two triple-doubles.
