Preseason Player of the Year: Trey Shearer, Montezuma — 2021
This Montezuma sophomore is still quite young, but has already started to build a lasting legacy. His freshman season at Montezuma was among the best freshman seasons we’ve seen in five years of Prep Hoops Iowa. He followed that up with a strong offseason, both on the camp circuit and with the Iowa Barnstormers’ 15U squad. Big things are coming for this potential three-time conference player of the year.
Trey Shearer, Montezuma — 2021
16.0 points, 3.9 assists, 3.2 steals
He had a fantastic freshman season, and there’s no reason to believe that he’ll follow that up with an even better sophomore campaign. Especially after he clearly put in plenty of work this offseason.
Hunter Ray, Montezuma — 2019
11.2 points, 2.2 blocks, 5.4 rebounds
The conference’s returning leading shot-blocker will likely be the biggest difference-maker in the paint defensibly this season. At 6-foot-5, he’ll be one of the biggest guys in the conference.
Rylan James, Lynnville-Sully — 2019
8.8 points, 6.8 rebounds
A grizzled veteran now, James has been integral in several seasons of winning Lynnville-Sully hoops, bow he’s got the keys to the car, and after its three leading scorers graduated, James could see his points average skyrocket.
Noah Beck, BGM — 2020
11.5 points, 5.5 assists, 5.0 steals, 4.0 rebounds
An assists and steals aficionado, Beck is a guy that could lead the conference in both this season. And he’ll look to lead the Bears to an better season that last year’s seven win campaign.
Brady Berkey, Colfax-Mingo — 2020
9.8 points, 3.9 assists, 1.9 steals
Colfax-Mingo had a good season last year, it won 15 games, but it’s three top scorers are gone. Now, returning leading scorer Brady Berkey will be the guy who captains the ship, and should see his numbers balloon this season as a junior.
Cole Watts, Montezuma — 2021
Tyson Vander Linden, Lynnville-Sully — 2019
Sam Gensley, BGM — 2020
Ulises Feliz, BGM, Brooklyn — 2019
