Coleman Ford, Timpview (Sr.)
Top-ranked Timpview rolled through Region 7 play with a perfect 12-0 record this season and sports a 20-3 record as the 5A state tournament gets underway this week. A big reason for all that success has been the consistent backcourt play of senior Coleman Ford.
Ford ranks third on the team in scoring at 10.5 ppg to go along with his 5.4 assists per game.

“Coleman is the best point guard in the state, he has been for two years,” said Timpview coach Kevin Santiago. “When he gets going to the rim he’s really hard to stop and he’s making that extra pass to our shooters. Teams have to choose if they’re going to stop him or if they’re going to close out on shooters.”
Ford was named a second-team all-stater after leading Timpview to a runner-up finish in the playoffs.
Maison White, Grantsville (Sr.)
Maison White was her usual dominant self during Grantsville’s 70-32 opening round playoff win over Juab last week.
White scored 12 points to go along with her five rebounds and four steals. She leads Grantsville in both scoring (16.6 ppg) and rebounding (11.4 rpg) this season.
“Maison is one of those athletes that every coach dreams about coaching. She is selfless, she finds joy in the process and in working hard to achieve her and her team’s goals and she is her team’s biggest cheerleader. I’m grateful to be a part of her journey and I’m excited to see what her and her teammates will do this week at the state …read more
