Here are the complete details:
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
BEN CUEVAS, Marshall, Senior, Forward
The goal for the recently completed soccer season was not necessarily to score goals. The goal was to win games.
“The focus was to win,” Marshall High School’s Ben Cuevas said. “It was about being around the team and not just one player.”
The senior forward did not have eye-popping statistics this season. But he helped the Eagles to eye-popping results, and that earned him Player of the Year honors.
COACH OF THE YEAR
MIKE WILLIAMS, Monrovia
Many overlooked Monrovia as a serious threat to overthrow La Canada as the Rio Hondo League champion. But Wildcats coach Mike Williams was confident his team could contend for the title.
“We played these tough preleague games to get ready,” Williams said early in the season.
