Player of the Year: 2019 Will Clapper, Baxter

The league’s leading returning scorer, the future college gridiron star is the South’s top player. He averaged a double-double for the Bolts last year in their first year after breaking off from Collins-Maxwell, and he’ll be looking to help Baxter get to the top of the division this year.

 

First Team

2019 Will Clapper, Baxter (17.5 points, 10.2 rebounds, 60.3 FG%)

The 6-4 forward averaged a double-double last year and shot 60% from the floor. A big, physical and athletic forward, he’ll post monster numbers this year for the Bolts. 

2019 Brayden Peterson, GMG Garwin (17.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 51.3 FG%)

A talented scoring wing who can score inside and out, Peterson looks like a threat to average 20+ a night this winter.

2020 Cole Damman, Baxter (12.4 points, 2.7 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.2 steals, 54 3PM)

Damman’s 54 made 3s lead the South’s returnees by a significant margin, and the junior guard is an all-around stat sheet stuffer for Baxter.

2019 Tate Bear, Meskwaki Settlement (15.5 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists)

A talented 6-3 combo forward who averaged nearly a double-double last year, Bear is an athletic forward capable of dominating games on either end of the floor.

2019 Aaron Fleming, GMG Garwin (13.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists)

A gunner who fits well alongside Peterson, Fleming is the team’s most willing shooter and a solid scoring threat from anywhere on the floor. If he can improve on his efficiency (37.2 FG% last year), watch out.

 

Second Team

2019 Hale Hulme, North Tama

2020 Emmett Roberts, Meskwaki Settlement

2019 Noah Bond, North Tama

2019 Kolton Gill, GMG Garwin

2019 Cael Even, North Tama
