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 9.


M’Wani Wilkinson 6’6 SF Bishop Gorman 2020 (#4PHN 2020) –Ho hum week for Wilkinson he went for 20-11 and 3 with 4 blocks. One of the best 6'6 rim protectors that I've ever seen.

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) – Another week another tournament Championship for Nix. He led Trinity to the Alaska Airline Classic back in his home state.

Jaden Hardy 6’4 PG Coronado 2021 (#1 2021) – Hardy is a legitimate candidate that has led the Cougars all season.
