Tanner Baird, Sr., Holy Family: Thriving with the mid-range jumper and always keeping his teammates involved, the Tigers’ senior star scored 17 points a game and was in the driver’s seat on his team’s ride to the 4A semifinals.

Mark Dolan, Sr., Fairview: A flat-out knockdown shooter, the Knights definitely would not have won 19 games and the Front Range League regular-season title without his 16.9 points per game and 60 made 3-pointers.

Owen Koonce, Jr., Centaurus: The Warriors had their best season since 2006 and the BoCoPreps.com player of the year was a big reason why they won more games in 2018-19 than the past two seasons combined.

Brady Renck, Sr., Longmont: Good luck finding a better attacking point guard and on-ball defender than Renck, who catalyzed the defending state champion Trojans on their way back to the Class 4A state title game this past winter.

Jax Wilke, Sr., Mead: Mead’s big man changed how every team in the league defended the Mavericks and the senior center was the primary reason the high-scoring Mavericks won 22 games and reached the Great 8.



Thomas Bounds, Sr., Niwot: The proud owner of a 46-point outburst against Mountain View on Jan. 25, he averaged 16.9 points a game and scored 20 or more points eight times during his senior campaign with the Cougars.

Steven Croell, Sr., Broomfield: Maybe he’s a quarterback by nature, but the hard-nosed lefty point guard paced the Eagles to the tune of 16.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game on the hardwood.

Jack Olson, Sr., Legacy: A 6-foot-8 wing that can do just about anything on the floor is a tough player to guard and Olson caused real problems for every team in the Front Range League. He averaged 19 points and 7.8 rebounds a night throughout his senior season.

Beck Page, Sr., Longmont: The 6-foot-3 guard is likely going to play college ball because he can shoot the lights out and led the defending 4A champs in scoring with 14.3 points a night. But the Trojans never would have returned to the title game without his perimeter defense.

Tyler Turner, Jr., Boulder: The Panthers opened the season with a 1-9 record and Turner’s return from injury was perhaps the biggest reason the Boulder boys were able to finish the 2018-19 campaign with a 13-12 record and a playoff appearance.

COACH OF THE YEAR — Travis Maron, Centaurus: The Warriors put together their best finish since 2006 and won their first playoff game since that same year, and never had a losing streak throughout the 2018-19 campaign.
