DANIEL LANGI, Bingham, football: Capped his stellar career in spectacular fashion by anchoring Bingham's defense in last week's 20-3 state championship game victory over American Fork.

The middle linebacker led Bingham with nine tackles, one sack and one interception, finishing the season with 116 tackles, four interceptions, three fumble recoveries, four pass deflections and four sacks. He was recently named the Region 3 Defensive Player of the Year.

The three-year starter, who was a Deseret News first-team all-stater as a junior last year, ended his career with 246 tackles and five interceptions.

Anchored by Langi, Bingham's defense only allowed 7.8 ppg during the 2014 season, the best scoring defense in 5A.

In the playoffs the Miners only allowed a staggering 12 total points in four combined games.

DARRI FRANDSEN, Panguitch, basketball: The reigning Deseret News 1A girls basketball MVP picked up right where she left off at the 1A Preview at the Sevier Valley Center this past weekend.

The senior forward scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds in a 59-31 victory over Duchesne last Friday, and then Saturday she led Panguitch to a 60-21 win over Wendover by recording 15 points and eight rebounds.

Last season Frandsen led Panguitch to a perfect 25-0 record and a 1A state championship by averaging 17.7 points, 10.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.8 rebounds.

Earlier this month, Frandsen also helped lead Panguitchs volleyball team to the 1A state championship.
