He saved his best for last, translating what coach Jacob Stern calls “the best technical skill I have ever seen” into 17 goals and three assists while leading the Hawks to the District 13-6A title and a spot in the regional quarterfinals.

DEFENDER: Griffin Smith, sr., McCallum: The Knights enjoyed one of the deepest runs in school history by reaching the Class 5A regional quarterfinals, and the Clark University signee not only served as a back line stalwart but also chipped in six goals and two assists.
