FIRST TEAM

F — Justin Barkow, Jr., Niwot: The Northern League player of the year, Barkow's 20 goals and 52 points were some of the highest individual totals in the entire state.

F — Cruz Valdez, Sr., Skyline: Led the Falcons to a share of the Tri-Valley League title and garnered league co-player of the year honors after recording 10 goals and 23 points. The Cougars' offense ran through Hoffmann in the midfield, and he in turn provided with nine goals and eight assists. Selected to all-Northern League first team.

MF — Quinn Liebmann, Sr., Boulder: One of the best ball-handlers around, Liebmann was key in keeping Panthers out of danger and flipping the flow of play. The Old Dominion-bound senior scored five goals and added eight assists as the BoCoPreps.com Player of the Year.

MF — Billy Hoffmann, Sr., Niwot: The Cougars' offense ran through Hoffmann in the midfield, and he in turn provided with nine goals and eight assists. Selected to all-Northern League first team.

MF — Raul Magno, Sr., Fairview: Strong-legged senior could power the ball downfield, and he showed that with nine assists in addition to a goal. Also did a fantastic job balancing two sports and was named first team all-Front Range League.

MF — Porter Milner, Jr., Broomfield: The Eagles top offensive threat also served as an excellent defender during Broomfield's championship run on his way to all-state and all-Front Range League first team honors. He tallied 10 goals and seven assists.

MF — Andy Vaughn, Sr., Fairview: Vaughn, a first-team all-Front Range League selection, stepped into a major scoring role for the Knights, and he responded with five goals and seven assists.

D — Tyler Duggan, Jr., Broomfield: The Eagles transitioned just fine from Class 4A to 5A, partly because of the beyond-his-years leadership from Duggan. Broomfield surrendered just 18 goals all season on the way to a state title.

D — Skye Guegan, Sr., Boulder: Guegan rose quickly to become one of the Panthers' premier two-way players, not only keeping shots out of Leo Huettel's back yard but also providing timely goals. He scored five goals and added two assists.

D — Mitchell Davis, Sr., Boulder: One of Boulder's most seasoned players, Davis locked down the best of the best for most of the season and helped the Panthers to be Class 5A's stingiest defense with just 13 goals allowed.

GK — Ventura Dominguez, Sr., Centaurus: Centaurus won many games with two or three goals scored because of Dominguez's ability to stave off potential threats. A first-team 4A all-state selection, he posted five shutouts and amassed 105 saves in 17 games.

Coach — Jim Davidson, Broomfield: Davidson deserves all the credit for having the Eagles playing as fluid as ever during a near-perfect postseason run. Broomfield allowed one goal in five games and played strongest in the midst of a school tragedy the week of the final two games.
