    At right, Boulder's Micah Blackburn was a steady defender that had a lot of say in Boulder's set pieces throughout the season.




MF — Omar Castruita, Sr., Boulder: Mr. All-American had 13 goals and 12 assists despite missing eight games with a hamstring injury. He finished his high school career as the program’s all-time leader in goals and assists with 40 and 53.

MF — Sajji Singh, Sr., Fairview: Singh was named the 5A co-player of the year by CHSSCA. A number of area coaches praised his play in a survey sent out after the season. “As dominant a midfield force as I have seen in a while,” one rival coach said.

MF/F — Tanner Smith, Sr., Broomfield: Smith moved into the team’s center forward position to help the Eagles surge in the postseason. Perhaps his finest moment came in the quarterfinals as he speared a header into the net in double overtime to lift his team past Legacy and into the semifinals.

MF/F — Noah Stover, Sr., Legacy: A threat with either foot, Stover was a crucial part of the Lightning’s ability to possess and attack.

MF — Dylan Weiss, Jr., Silver Creek: Weiss is an all-around force for Silver Creek, which moved into the second round of the playoffs for a third straight year.

F — Cooper Harmon, Sr., Fairview: Dynamic on and off the ball, Harmon tallied 15 of his team’s 41 goals this season. One look and you’ll see he plays with pure passion.

F — Nathan Wanninger, Sr., Skyline: The Tri-Valley Conference player of the year had 25 goals and nine assists. His 59 points were the fourth-highest in the Class 4A this season.

F — Fernando Ruiz, Jr., Centaurus: Ruiz scored 22 goals for a second straight season.

F — Christian Nunez, Jr., Centaurus: Nunez proved why he’s one of the most talented players in the state with 15 goals and 13 assists.

F — Jesse Bacardi, Sr., Boulder: Bacardi scored 15 goals this season — including seven in the final month.

D — Micah Blackburn, Jr., Boulder: Blackburn, solid at center back for the Panthers, did a little bit of everything on the field as he helped his team wherever he could in their run to the semifinals.

D — Myles Ellis, Sr., Fairview: A lockdown defender and a clutch scorer. Ellis scored two walk-off goals, including a brilliant goal in double overtime against Boulder that sent him diving into his student section.

D — Andres Ocampo, Sr., Broomfield: Ocampo was named first-team all-state in 5A by CHSSCA and CHSAA and was first-team all-conference in the Front Range League. He was a big reason why the Eagles turned gears in the postseason.

D — Ben Tuka, Sr., Legacy: Tuka anchored a talented backline, which allowed just 19 goals in 18 games this season.

D/MF— Reid Dimond, Sr., Peak to Peak: Dimond created scoring opportunities for his teammates from the backline and the midfield. His all-around play was pivotal in leading the Pumas into the postseason.

GK — Diego Chavez, Sr., Skyline: Multiple coaches around the area called Chavez the best goalie in town. Maybe his best moments came on the two penalty kick saves during the Falcons’ 15-game unbeaten streak.

GK — Hank Dalle-Molle, Sr., Monarch: The Coyotes keeper faced a lot of pressure this season and often kept his teams in games with his dynamic play.

GK — Carter Melton, Jr., Fairview: The stingiest team in the state was backed by Melton, who allowed only three goals all season.

GK — Mario Munoz, Sr., Niwot: One of the most talented keepers in the area. He was brilliant in keeping Centaurus and the Warriors’ one-two punch of Nunez and Ruiz scoreless on Oct. 2.

Coach — Anthony Romano, Legacy: The Lightning had perhaps their best season in program history — from starting a best 7-0, to winning a program-most 13 games, to reaching the round of 16 for the fourth consecutive season.
