You could make a solid argument for either Potratz or Fort Madison’s Jayden Fedler for the POY honor, but we’ll give the edge to Potratz, the best player on a Keokuk team we think will be better than Fort Madison. He led the Chiefs in scoring and steals last season.
2021 Anthony Potratz, Keokuk (13.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.7 steals)
Potratz ranks second among returnees in scoring and fourth in rebounding. The leading scorer for what we think will be the best team in the league.
2020 Jayden Fedler, Fort Madison (14.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 58.5 FG%)
Fedler is an efficient forward, and the league’s leading returning scorer and rebounder.
2020 Tyjai Mueller, Keokuk (10.9 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals)
The 6-1 guard led the league in made 3s last season (41), and also led the team in assists.
2020 Keegan Kohorst, Mount Pleasant (10.4 points, 1.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals)
The leading returning scorer for the Panthers, Kohorst also led the team in assists and ranked second in steals last year.
2021 Michael Alexander, Burlington (11.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.4 steals, 43 3PM)*
After cutting his teeth against the likes of DJ Carton, Cortaviaus Seales and Dylan Peeters in the MAC, Alexander should enjoy the Grayhounds move to the Southeast Conference. An athletic guard who can do a bit of everything, he should have a big year for Burlington, in what should be a much better competitive fit for them.
