Preseason Player of the Year: 2021 Cooper DeJean, OABCIG

The best player in 2A, Dejean led the Eagles in scoring, rebounding, assists and blocks last season and will be asked to do much more for a group that doesn’t return anyone who scored more than 13 points last season. An explosive athlete, he plays above the rim and should have a massive season for OABCIG. 


First Team

2021 Cooper DeJean, OABCIG (23.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.7 steals, 50.9 FG%)

DeJean is the league's leading returnee in scoring, rebounds and assists. He's an explosive athlete who is going to be asked to do even more this season for an OABCIG team that lost just about everything to graduation.

2020 Jonah DeRoos, Siouxland Christian (17.9 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.5 steals)

The 5-11 guard averaged 20.5 points in the Eagles' eight wins last season. He led the team in steals and finished second in assists.

2020 Christian Heilbuth, Siouxland Christian (15.5 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 7.1 blocks)

Heilbuth's 156 blocks last season were more than all but five TEAMS around the state.
