Preseason 2A Player of the Year: 2022 Tanner Te Slaa Tanner Te Slaa 6'5" | SF Boyden-Hull | 2022 State IA , Boyden-Hull

The future South Dakota State Jackrabbit wing does a little bit of everything for the Comets, and has led them to a 2A championship and a pair of runner-up finishes in the last three years. While crosstown rival Western Christian will open the year as the favorite in the class, it's Te Slaa who opens the year as our Preseason POY selection.

 

First Team

2022 Tanner Te Slaa Tanner Te Slaa 6'5" | SF Boyden-Hull | 2022 State IA , Boyden-Hull: 21.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.9 steals, 53.1 FG%, 36.6 3P%, 81.0 FT%

A long, versatile wing with a high IQ, Te Slaa is an efficient scorer who lets the game come to him. He uses his length well on the defensive end to play passing lanes and contest shots, he gets others involved, is a good rebounder, and is a dominant three-level scoring threat who takes what is given to him. 

 

2022 Ty Van Essen Ty Van Essen 6'4" | PF Western Christian | 2022 State IA , Western Christian: 16.9 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.1 steals, 58.5 FG%, 55.4 3P%, 78.6
