Preseason Player of the Year: JD Stout, Keota2020

A no-brainer for this honor, Stout was sensational as a freshman two years ago and even better last season as a sophomore. It will tough for him to up the ante again this season, but we expect him to anyways. Look for Stout to be one of the state’s best scorers this season. 



First Team

JD Stout, Keota — 2020

23.6 points, 2.6 assists, 2.0 steals, 3.2 rebounds 

The conference’s leading scorer from a season ago is back. Not only were his 23.6 points per game the best in the conference, but it was the best in Iowa’s entire sophomore class. 


Garrett Straight, Belle Plaine — 2019

17.8 points, 3.7 assists, 2.1 steals, 6.8 rebounds 

A guy who impacts the game in a multitude of ways. Straight will score at a high clip, maybe 20 per game this season, but will also assist and play staunch D. He rebounds it well from the guard spot, too.


Kobe Grieder, Belle Plaine — 2019 

12.0 points, 3.7 rebounds 

Another Plainsman who makes the first team, Grieder is a 6-foot-1 wing who will do most of his damage by simply getting buckets. He’s the conference’s third-leading returning scorer, and he led it in 3s made last winter. 


Brady Powers, Sigourney — 2020

11.7 points, 2.3 assists, 2.3 steals, 3.1 rebounds 

Defense is the name of the game for this 6-foot guard, and his 2.3 steals per game were second best in the conference last season. He’ll do a little bit if everything for the Savages this winter. 


Spencer Magill, Sigourney — 2019

10.0 points, 2.3 assists, 1.5 steals, 4.9 rebounds 

Not only did he average 10 points per game last season for the Savages, but he led the team in blocks and co-led them in assists. The 6-foot 2 senior could be among the conference’s rebounding leaders this year, too. 


Second Team

Dylan Fry, Belle Plaine — 2019

Trevin Straight, Belle Plaine — 2020

Brayden Monore, Tri County — 2020

Dustin Haines, Sigourney — 2019

Noah Mumby, Iowa Velley — 2019
