Athlete of The Year Candidates

This year more than others, there are a host of candidates for the Daily Union Male Winter Athlete of the Year. There are eight basketball players from seven different teams and six wrestlers from one team.

Tristan Warner (so.) of the Windsor Blue Devil basketball team averaged about 20 points per game as the team's leading scorer with almost 400 points. He was slighted in the conference balloting and was only picked as an Honorable Mention. He finished the season with a 28-point performance.

Brandon Helmuth led Stew-Stras basketball in scoring, with about 400 points and averaging about 20 points per game. Helmuth had an area season 2nd-best 33 points in one game.

Colton Burrus (jr.) led Cowden-Herrick basketball in scoring with 444 points, averaging 16.4 points per game. He made 43 3-pointers, shooting 30%. He was 91 of 126 (72%) at the line and shot 52% from 2-point territory for the season. He also led the team with 46 assists. Burrus was also slighted in conference selections, picked as an Honorable Mention. Burrus had an area season-high 37 points in one game.

Peyton Hagerman of Okaw Valley had over 300 points and averaged about 15 points per game and led the Timberwolves in scoring as a point guard. He scored 25 points in their regional semifinal win.

Brady Barnes came back to the Beecher City basketball line-up after leading them to wins, then missing several games. BC played three games in three days to end the regular season and Barnes scored 68 points in those three games (22.7 ppg). Despite missing games, Barnes was still picked as 2nd Team All-NTC.

Trent Chepan of Central A&M averaged almost 15 points per game with well-over 300 points per game in the post. Chepan was also an area leader in rebounding with over 200 boards, averaging almost a double-double in scoring and rebounding.

Cwenton Williams (sr.) led Shelybyville basketball in scoring with 260 points (10.8 ppg) with a team-high 44 free throws of 77 attempts (61%). He shot 49% from 2-point range and had 22 3-pointers (29%).
