2019 All-Idaho Basketball Players of the Year
BOYS FIRST TEAM
PLAYER OF THE YEAR: GARRETT HAWKES, NORTH FREMONT
Why he is player of the year: After earning first-team honors last season, the 6-foot-3 senior wing led the Huskies to their first state title. He averaged 18.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 2.1 steals.
Coach’s comment: “Knowing he draws so much defensive attention, he is unselfish with the basketball and has the ability to dish and create for others,” North Fremont coach Shannon Hill said.
What others are saying: “Garrett simply played harder than anyone else on the floor and willed his team to a state championship. He had no weaknesses and was willing to do whatever it took to win a game,” West Jefferson coach Dave Hadley said.
What’s next: Hawkes plans to go on a church mission before seeking an opportunity to play college basketball.
MICHAEL URE, RIRIE
The state’s all-class Gatorade player of the year was voted onto the All-Idaho first team for the third year in a row. The 6-7 senior forward capped his final season with a third-place trophy while averaging 21.4 points, 11.3 rebounds and 3.3 blocks.
RICKY GOLENOR, COLE VALLEY CHRISTIAN
The 6-4 senior guard was just as comfortable, and dangerous, firing off 3-point shots as he was battling inside the paint or running the break. The triple threat led the Chargers while pouring in 18.1 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.2 blocks a game.
ENRIQUE QUEBRADO, MARSING
The two-time WIC Player of the Year and 5-7 point guard leaves Marsing with his name all over the school’s record books. The four-year starter averaged 17.9 points and 3.4 assists as a senior, leading the Huskies to a school-record 19 wins.
TREY SHAUL, BEAR LAKE
One constant in Bear Lake’s recent run — two state titles and a consolation trophy this year — is the 5-9 senior point guard. The three-year starter finished with a 69-12 record and poured in 13.8 points and 3.4 assists as a senior.
COACH OF THE YEAR: SHANNON HILL, NORTH FREMONT
The Huskies won their first state championship under the first-year head coach.
