Kayden Calder has given 110% all the time. He practiced hard and he played hard. He believed in his coaches and did what they told him. He played his heart out and then felt he needed to step it up at the state tournament and he did that. You made me proud! What more could a Dad ask for? Kayd learned work ethic, sportsmanship and honesty from 1A basketball and his coaches. Thank you to the 1A coaches for all the votes you gave him. "Pa Ned"

Can't argue much with these selections except on one account: How is it possible that a player in the top 7 of every statistical category in 1A, and the leader statewide in assists (by a comfortable margin) not make first team?
For some reason the Deseret News does not track blocks; if they did Brayden Facemyer would of led 1A in that regard to.
Huge snub in my opinion.

1A 1WAY;
You make some interesting points in defense of Facemeyer's selection to the first team, what I am wondering is who would you leave off the first team? Also, not every school reports all game stats, so you could easily have a wide disparity in assists, rebounds, etc. In our region we're lucky if the scores get reported in a timely manner from some of our schools

Congrats to all the 1-A All Stars. I agree with the selection. Too bad that a few other's were not mentioned, but that's how the ball bounces. I was wondering though how the stats were kept, and then posted, for each All Star player? Were the stats posted just for the State Tourny, or for the whole season? Example, Kaden Calder's stats, as posted in his profile, for the season is: Total, 25 games, 25.52 ppg, 1.04 3ptspg, A total of 13 rebounds for 25 games. A total of 3 assists for 25 games. A total of 0 steals for 25 games. As a All Star, which he most definately was, his stat's were posted as: 20.5 ppg, 7 rebpg, 6 assistspg, 5 stealspg. Again, Please don't think I'm picking on Kaden, He and his family and team should be proud, a fine ball player. I'm sure he had better stats than that which were posted for his whole season. I'm just wondering again if it was just for the 4 games in the tourny?
