ST. GEORGE — With Desert Hills and Pine View tying for the 3AA South crown, it only makes sense that each team would have an MVP and that’s precisely the case as the coaches all-region team was announced Thursday evening.
Thunder linebacker Tucker Cowdin, who led the state in tackles and sacks, will share the MVP honors with Panther Pano Tia Tia, who rushed for 1,666 yards and 13 touchdowns in 11 games.
D-Hills, which captured the No. 1-seed by virtue of its win over Pine View, placed seven players on the first team, including running back Bridger Cowdin, safety Gabriel Sewell, lineman Boogie Sewell, lineman Justice Alo, LB Badge Morris, return man Nephi Sewell and punter Mason Macdonald.
Pine View also had seven first-teamers, including receiver Bladen Hosner, quarterback Kody Wilstead, WR/DB Blake Ence, linebacker Gage Afatasi, lineman Harrison Goebel, lineman Raymond Fiame and placekicker Ethan Baer.
Hurricane had five first-teamers: LB/RB Jeremiah Ieremia, linebacker Charlie Sefita, WR/DB Noah Elison, back Nick McDaniel and lineman Matt Olsen.
Dixie had four first-teamers: QB Ammon Takau, OL Jaxon Davis, DL Jeff Martinez and WR/DB Jaden Harrison.
Snow Canyon’s three first-teamers were TE Chance Thorkelson, LB Brady Sargent and receiver TJ Taimi.
Cedar placed LB Dallin Brooks and WR/DB Jeff Rogers on the first team.
