  1. concerned citizen says:

    Why would you nominate a player from a team that lost in playoffs without nominating someone from a team that won? What about Cody Gander from Lakeview who scored the game winning lay-up and subsequent free throws to seal the win for Lakeview? By the way…Lakeview had not won the first round since 2002.

    • Tom Reisenweber says:

      When we looked at the Lakeview game we thought that several Lakeview players could have been nominated but they were all kind of on the same level and it might not have been fair to take one over the other. We will make sure to get one in there next week.

      Thanks again,
