    true that escalante would get destroyed bad by 2-A champs wow there not even on the same map its a whole new world out of 1-A dont even try to make an arguement about escalante beating the north summit braves or south sevier rams that would be a joke. your old competition would make you look bad from south sevier!

    oh ya Escalante played two 2-A teams this year parowan and richfield. seriously they were both the lower teams in 2-A you cant say escalante was good this year. ya for 1-A! come on richfield beat them and they choked at state don't compare escalante with 2-A teams seriously they would get destroyed by 90 percent of them north summit, south sevier, rowland hall, layton christian, manti, south summit, san juan ya if you would have played any of those teams you would have lost by 20+ points get real.

    Region 15 like we all said it is hard to be in a region where you may travel 1 1/2 tops for any of your region games. Region 16 & 18 have to travel for hours. oh yeah it is easy to win a championship on a court that let's 26 other teams don't get to play on in the 1A preview. So your kids are used to everything. Come on up to a real tournament in Region 16,17. The only reason that your region has one so many times is all they do is play bball. NO region 15 school except Panguitch is consistantly good in baseball. So what ever just keep enjoying your nice cozy beds while other people are trying to get better and take state over you. Also Tabiona will be an elite team next year and Region 20 will once be overated like every in 09-10. So get over yourselves.It is easy to lose by 20 when you have homecooking referees doing your games? Everyone knows how it works down their in Southern Utah.Other then the last 5 years how many titles has Escalante won?

  • HAHA
    March 30, 2009 6:23 p.m.

    haha why would they be scared to play those teams on there home courts? they played them at state.. ha maybe those teams are scared to play at there home courts. TABBY played at Escalantes home court and hmm there coach got kicked out of the game and escalante killed them by i think more than 20 points? and had there 3rd string in there by the end of the game weird how escalante was just soooo scared huh but they won by double digits WEIRD!

    Once again, a region 15 team that didn't even make the state tournament went TO your region champion's HOME court, and won. Why aren't you people interested in facts?

  • haha

    Region 15 is just scared to play rich tabby and duchesne at home... they know they will lose

  • I LOVE region 15!! (escalante)
    March 29, 2009 4:56 p.m.

    Why are some of you ripping the Region 15 teams? You didn't play us either you can schedule it and Region 15 teams will play you! I think a little jealousy is going on here cause Region 15 is a pretty dominating region. Fact is a Region 15 team won it this year and last year? So why are you saying Region 16 is so much better? Escalante will play any team that wants to play them. We played Tabiona and if I recall DOMINATED them. They beat Rich so do your talking next season Escalante Won face it get over it and move on! GOOD JOB REGION 15 BOYS!

    March 28, 2009 3:17 p.m.

    You must be from region 15. You brushed over Andersen and Browning like they did well with their teams and that was about it. Norris is a great kid and great player but..., he did not lead the state as the best scorer. He did in numbers only because they would not take him out of the cake games when they scored over a hundred a couple of times and even in the tournament when they were playing weak teams. Not the kids fault, just his coaches. Good player and good kid. Just not the best scorer in the state in 1A. Andersen is not a great ball player because he is a good team leader. That is not his forte. He just is a great ball player and a great kid. To say that region 15 has the best scorer and the best ball handler etc..could be a little assumptive. Tabiona, Duchesne, and Rich have just as talented of players.

  • region 17 ?????
    March 28, 2009 10:47 a.m.

    I think the list is pretty good for the most part, but the kids I feel bad for are the ones from region 17, they only have two players from their region on any of the teams, and only half of their coaches even submitted all state ballots. Christian Heritage, ICS, and Mt. Vernon didn't even bother to send in votes. What doesn't make sense is that Christian Heritage had a decent ball player in Metzger this year and the first person left off the list according to the voting results is that Khokhar kid from SL Lutheran who averaged 18 ppg in their two games at the state tournament vs. Montecello and Escalante. Coaches should definitely be able to take a couple of minutes to send in an allstate ballot!

    thats what i mean why doesn't 1A just have a 1 loss and your done tournament. it could be a shorter tournament, would be more competive then it currently is.LET SEE SOME REGION 15 TEAM PLAY IN OGDEN,RANDOPLH,SALT LAKE,PROVO.THEY WONT PLAY UNLESS IT IS IN RICHFIELD IN THE REGION 15 INVITATIONAL OR I MEAN THE 1A PREVIEW MY BAD.REGION 16 WILL HAVE THE BEST 2 TEAMS IN THE STATE NEXT YEAR AND 3RD BEST WILL BE PIUTE & PANGUITCH. I THINK IT IS FUNNY HOW THESE REGION 15 PEOPLE GET SO DEFENSIVE ABOUT NOT LEAVING THEIR HOME GYMS. OH YEAH IT WONT MATTER CUZ NEXT YEAR YOU WILL BE REGION 20,SO WHATEVER.GOOD LUCK ANNOYMOUS LIVING YOUR HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS THROUGH THESE KIDS.

    It's funny how this character says Region 15 teams won't travel north, then when called out, says places like Tabiona and Duchesne are east, not north. What northern schools is this guy talking about then?

    Yes, not much thought going on inside there.

  • come on northerner
    March 27, 2009 4:49 p.m.

    i wish more people would think before they get all worked up like our friend who continues to demand Reg 15 should travel. They travel up north as much as Reg 16 travels down south. That's how it works they switch years, it seems pretty sumple to understand that if up north schools want the games to schedule them. Also as far as teams choking isn't that what happens with play in games and the first day of state to even play on the winners side of the state tourney, then everyday after that to get to the championship? (eg wayne county) Your thoughts, obviously have not been fully processed.

    hey i didnt know that region 15 was the big east,acc of 1A BASKETBALL where they could demand people to come play them on their court.DO THEY GIVE GUARNTEED MONEY WITH THOSE GAMES LIKE THOSE CONFERENCES DO?I know region 15 thinks they are king but their are 1A teams that are in utah,salt lake,weber counties.Also escalante did play a 2A&3A schools this year.Escalante made the plays when they had to so they could win. I think 1A should have a round robin like 2A does,see how many good teams would choke on the one & deal.THEN WE COULD REALLY MAKE 1A TOUNAMENT THE BEST IN THE STATE.THE WENDOVER KID DID DESERVE ALL-STATE.NO MATTER HOW MANY SHOT HE TAKES A GAME.NOT ANY BBALL PLAYER MAKES EVERYSHOT.TO BE HONEST I WOULD OF LOVED TO SEE SO. SEVIER & ESCALANTE PLAY THAT WOULD BE A GREAT BBALL GAME

  • Another 1A Coach
    March 27, 2009 11:21 a.m.

    Coaches don't need to justify their voting, but I want to make some comments. While there are a lot of good players, coaches do recognize the top players since we are the ones creating plays to defend against them. Also, it is a no brainer that we pay attention to players who get their teams to state. Almost anyone can score against weak teams, so we also take into account other factors. Kevin Griffin is tough and was key in Escalante's success and could have been named the MVP with Tim. Beau Browning and Caden Anderson are both great team leaders of top ranked teams and proved themselves at state. Matt Hoyt is the best ball handler in the state and probably the leader in assists. Trac Norris was the 1A top scorer on a ranked team that only had one loss at state. The next few players listed in the voting are all top players on their teams, but Tyson Westwood stood out at the state tournaments the past two years. Each one of these first team players deserve this recognition for their years of hard work and dedication to the game of basketball. Congratulations!

    it's easy to average 18 ppg when you take 25 shot a game and don't get the other team mates involved

    March 27, 2009 10:52 a.m.

    Escalante has had some of the best teams to ever go through 1A the last 5 years. Very few state champs ever have the win loss records they do and they are always playing a bunch of 2A teams.

  • not traveling North.. HA
    March 27, 2009 10:52 a.m.

    What a joke are you people really getting worked up because Reg. 15 doesn't travel up north all the time to play you guys? Why would they when your not traveling down south. Also they just wait til state and beat you then. It more fun that way!!

  • anonymous
    March 27, 2009 10:43 a.m.

    they should travel and play a couple 16 teams Rich, Tabby, and Duchesne are tough and good competition... why do you think Escalante takes turns playing Tabby?? good competition.......

  • WHY SHOULD THEY TRAVEL
    March 27, 2009 9:02 a.m.

    Why should they travel???? It appears that most of the competition is east and south of Richfield anyways. So why travel????? I am sure they would welcome you to travel to their gym. Oh yeah didn't Escalante play a couple of 5A schools a year or two ago? Most of the big schools won't play little schools, its a no win situation. If they win it's no big deal and if they lose they lost to a little school. Looks like the teams to give Escalante the most trouble are south or east or richfield. If you want to play region 15 you gotta be willing to travel there.

  • Re:?????
    March 27, 2009 8:51 a.m.

  • 1A Coach
    March 27, 2009 8:12 a.m.

    People, there are only so many spots available on the all-state lists! EVERY team has a case for someone who was left off the list, that's just how it goes. It is impossible to get everyone on there who deserves it, and if we increase the size of the lists, it waters down the honor. Often times, coaches have to go on the intangibles in selecting nominations. In other words we don't just use scoring as a criteria for nominations. Also, strenghth of schedule and strenght of region has to play a factor. Performance in the state tournament is another huge factor and those teams who don't make the field are at a disadvantage when it comes to all-state selections. This is not a perfect society and it is not a perfect system, but it's the best we have. I think every year the coaches do get it as close to correct as we can, given the number of spots available on the lists.

  • Escalante
    March 27, 2009 7:57 a.m.

    Well you guys can cry all you want but Escalante had three boys that didn't make it that would drop 15 to 20 points a game on any other team but they knew what their role was and they took it! Thats what made Escalante so good!

  • bertrom
    March 27, 2009 7:41 a.m.

    What I want to know is how Victor DeSantiago in wendover can be the fourth leading scorer in the state and not make that list anywhere. That's just awful. I know his team didn't make it all the way to the state tournament, but something is wrong when a kid scores over 18 points a game and doesn't make any of the all state teams.

  • Rebel Fan
    March 27, 2009 7:22 a.m.

    So I guess the coaches are the selection committee for ths all state thing from what I hear. They only acknowledged one of Rich High School's five very talented Juniors. I guess we will see how that works out for them. I do not think they are right about this but I guess we shall see next year. Whitehorse had two players on the second team? Panguitch 3 and the Rebels handled the Bobcats twice. Do you really think Leach is better than the other four juniors for Rich? Maybe they are right but I do not think Leach would even start for Rich next year if he was playing with them. It is nice that not too many people are giving Rich a lot of credit after loosing to Valley. I think they are saying thek Rebels have no heart, no drive, do not pay as a team. Is that true Rebels? I do not think so but i guess we shall see. Way to go Calder for getting in the Honorable Mention as our super sophomore.

    March 27, 2009 6:38 a.m.

    Hey bud last time I checked those schools are east of Richfield not North. I find it funny that Region 15 will go to Vegas & St. George to play in summer leagues but I didn't see any Region 17 or 18 or 19 teams on their schedule.Anything outside of traveling 2 hours for these teams for Region is too much. Try and go play some road games that are not at the Sevier Valley Center preseason tournament. Go play at Rich or at S.L. Luthern, that new school Liahona that will be in 1a next year.I hope the 2nd team All-Staters throttle on 1st teamers because I think some of them are overated yes I did say overated. But Hughes did deserve the MVP.

  • RE: Who else was lest offthelist

    "LET'S FACE IT THE REGION 15 WON'T GO PLAY ANYONE NORTH OF RICHFIELD UNLESS IT IS THE STATE PLAY-IN GAME."

    Woah, we have nothing but respect for Escalante. I don't know who the poster was who said we'd have won for sure had the moveouts stayed, but the last time we played Escalante with that group of guys two years ago, they beat us. In other words, they were always the better team. McKay's gotten so much bigger and stronger over the last two years that maybe that could have changed things, but who's to say?

    What happened, happened. No need to seek to diminish Escalante's successes with these "what could have been's". They were always top notch.

  • Who Else was left off list

    Wastach Academy even though they had a bad record they have some young talent that should of got some consideration. I THOUGHT ALL-STATE WAS FOR THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE STATE, NOT WHO GOT TO STATE. LET'S FACE IT THE REGION 15 WON'T GO PLAY ANYONE NORTH OF RICHFIELD UNLESS IT IS THE STATE PLAY-IN GAME.THEIR WAS GOOD TEAMS AT STATE BUT THEIR WERE ALOT OF GOOD PLAYERS WHO DIDN'T GET TO STATE EITHER. I THINK THE ALL-STATE SYSTEM SHOULD NOT BE FOR JUST STATE BUT ALL YEAR. IF IT IS JUST FOR THE STATE TOURNAMENT THE WHY DO HIGH SCHOOL COACHES HAVE TO CALL IN THEIR SCORES.IT POINTLESS UNLESS YOU ARE GOING TO VOTE ALL-STATE FOR THE WHOLE YEAR. LOOK IN THE NEWSPAPER ONCE A WEEK DURING THE SEASON AND YOU CAN SEE WHO IS GOOD.I KNOW OF AT LEAST 5 KIDS THAT COULD TAKE THE FIRST TEAM TO TOWN.

  • huh?
    March 26, 2009 4:20 p.m.

    Escalante is the worst team to win a 1A title in 15 years. It's safe to say Wayne would have handled them with the guys back. Last year too. And don't come back at me with how much higher the enrollment numbers are. We actually have a 2nd winter sport here that attracts top athletes, unlike you.

  • congrats to all
    March 26, 2009 2:35 p.m.

    good work to the boys who made it on the lists and to the ones that didn't, not a big deal, there have been tons of good players over the years who didn't make the list they deserved to by the caliber of player they were because either their teams wasn't good enough or certain coach's had a bias. not a big deal this is supposed to just reward some kids who did well and everyone is turning it into much more than that.

    IT'S NOT ABOUT SCORING.....IT'S ABOUT TEAM WORK.... IT'S ABOUT MAKING EACH YOUNG MAN ON THE TEAM BETTER, IT'S NOT ABOUT ME,ME,ME, IT'S ABOUT US! YOU CAN BE AN MVP, OR ALL STAR, OR EVEN AN ALL STATER, WHOOP T DO! BUT ONLY A SELECT FEW GET TO BE STATE CHAMPS, IT IS TEAM WORK THAT MAKES STATE CHAMPS, NOT JUST ONE PERSON SHOOTING THE BALL ALL THE TIME. HAD THE MOQUIS NOT WON STATE WE WOULD NOT BE HAVING A BATTLE OVER THE MVP SPOT! IN MY OPINION THE MOQUIS HAVE 7 MVP'S TIMMY,BRADY,JACE,LOGAN,KEVIN,DALTON, AND KAM. EACH DID THEIR JOB!!!!! AND DID IT WELL. THANKS FOR A GREAT SEASON!

    Look at the stats on Duncan, they don't lie. He only averaged 11.6 ppg. at the state tournament. This definitely doesn't make him the "best" player in the tournament. He scored 10, 13, and 12 in their three games. At 6'5" I would think he should be putting up better numbers than this.

  • 1A Coach
    March 26, 2009 8:26 a.m.

    I agree with the other coaches on Monticello. This team was led by Frost and Torres. The Weatherford kid played a bigger role on this team than Duncan. Duncan definitely plays soft and spends a lot of time away from the basket. But remember, he is young, only a Soph. Monticello supporters need to realize that their votes might have been affected by the team's performance at state. You need to go deeper into the tournament and win a couple of games to get noticed. You need to realize there are a lot of good players who did not make any of the lists, and you should be greatful that you got 2 players on the lists. It's really difficult to get three all-state reps. Calling him the "best player in the 1A tourney" is definitely a little ambitious, Bballer Fan.

    Let's all just be happy for all these awesome athletes who worked hard and played well all season long. It's true that some players can get overlooked if their team didn't make it to state or lost out at state...if the coaches don't see you play it's hard for them to vote for you. Good job guys and thanks to the Deseret News for being so awesome at covering the preps, especially 1A. Good job All-Staters!!!

    Don't you think the kid might read your comments and take your opinions to heart. He didn't make it so what a few years from now that wont mean anything but your negative comments will stick with him...There is no perfect system to selecting All-State athletes but the one they have does a pretty good job. These kids think their world hangs in the balance on rather they get selected or not don't put the extra pressure on them.

    March 25, 2009 4:24 p.m.

    Taking nothing away from the kid, who is going to get better and better, he most definetely was not the best player on his team. I watched Monticello multiple times and while you had to be concerned with his size, you knew he could be defended. He has yet to fully realize what he potential he has. he needs to work on his quickness and jumping ability, butmostly his killer instinct. He is way soft. He will be a good player for the next two years but there's no way Monticello has the record it has this year if he is one of the best 1A players this year!

    March 25, 2009 2:32 p.m.

    I agree completely with you that at this level individual awards are given to players on winning teams. Five above average players are a better team (Escalante, Rich, Duchesne) than one great player with four poor players, as you know this happens all the time at all levels. If he had the same 4 players that Duchesne and Rich had, he would have been equal to the job! I commend these teams for having enough good players to win, it must be tuff for Dallin to play on a poor team. My friends in SLC saw him in an AAU tourney last fall and were very impressed. Don't beat the kid up for being on a bad high school team it's not his fault!

  • re: bballer fan

    Have you even read the other comments? Duchesne and Valley both finished in the top three as a team, and only had one player recieve 1st through 3rd team all state honors. So your comment that "The top 6 teams at 1A state had 5 good or great players" is completely wrong and off the wall. Each of these teams had good team play and defense...not a buch of show off all star award seekers. Dallin Duncan obviously didn't shine in the eyes of the coaches because none of them even remembered his name when they voted. Let me clue you in on how things work. You have to win at the state tournament in order to get all-state votes. Or else you have to be the top 2 at your position. Duncan was neither of those. Anderson from Rich, and Browning from Duchesne were both better, and their teams won. Come on pal everyone knows that.

    the fact that Trac Norris scored .6 more points than Tim Hughes is simply because when Escalante was playing their best ball toward the end of the season there were several games where Tim did not even see the floor in the fourth quarter. Tim had the opportunity to break the single game three point record during their state play in game, but he only played three min in that second half. It's not about the numbers it's about the team goal, and that is why Escalante is holding a second straight state title.

    That's what the article says that Hughes was second in scoring. Get over it, congratulation to Tim Hughes. Everything isn't about Panguitch.

    the fact that duchesne only had 1 player make 1st through third team all-state is amazing. The des news got it right...only browning deserved the honor, but the fact that they placed second at state with a bunch of non-flashy role players who really werent that talented, is a testament of their ability to play defense, and play together. this proves that a solid team will out perform the selfish all star types every time. Remember that kids.

    To 1a basketball - Where do you see anything that says otherwise? In his MVP write-up it says that Tim Hughes was second in scoring.

    Tim Hughes did not lead 1A in scoring, Trac Norris of Panguitch did with 20.8, this is even what the des news had posted in the write up for the 1A MVP.
