The State Player of the year is one of the most prestigious awards a prep player can take home in his career. No POY race in recent memory has had as many potential candidates as this one. Throughout the season PH will keep you updated with the POY race. In this article, we take a look at the candidates after week 8.


M’Wani Wilkinson 6’6 SF Bishop Gorman 2020 (#4PHN 2020) – Last week I used the word quiet in describing Wilkinson's season. You can scratch that. MW has exploded onto the national radar, doing basically what he has been doing all year.  He has transformed himself from an elite run and jump athlete into an elite run and jump athlete that consistently makes game impacting plays.

Julian Strawther 6’6 SF Liberty 2020  (#2 2020) – Strawther has been his dominant self. He's added to his game this season. He's faced so many double teams he has learned how to get teammates involved with his passing.

Daishen Nix 6’5 PG Trinity International 2020 (#1 2020) – Nix was selected as a McDonald's AA this week. I'm excited to see him play down in Arizona
