Player of the Year
Stephen Clark, Douglass
The story: Oklahoma State's future point guard closed his high school career as the No. 5 scorer in state history, and he won four state championships. Clark averaged 36.8 points and 13.0 assists as a senior, and he went out in style, hitting the game-clinching free throws for a 51-point performance in the state finals.
Jaylen Lowe, Owasso
The story: After quarterbacking the Rams to the football semifinals, Lowe played a similar role leading the basketball team to the semifinals. He averaged nearly 19.3 points and 3.7 assists per game to effectively run the offense. Lowe signed with Tulsa for football, but hopes to try to play basketball as well.
Shaquille Morris, Edmond Memorial
The story: One of the most improved players in the state, Morris became a dominant force in the paint on both ends of the floor. He shot 74.4 percent from the floor to average 17.1 points and 8.7 rebounds per game, while demonstrating smooth footwork and agility in a big frame. He'll play next season for Final Four participant Wichita State.
Jordan Woodard, Edmond Memorial
The story: The future Oklahoma Sooner battled through a severe hamstring injury and knee pain that required arthroscopic surgery after the season, but still averaged 15.4 points, 7.1 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game. And he capped the year with the steal and buzzer-beating tip-in that gave the Bulldogs the Class 6A state title.
Seth Youngblood, Roland
The story: Youngblood averaged 25.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and nearly four assists per game to lead the Rangers to their second state finals appearance. Headed to nearby Arkansas-Fort Smith, Youngblood helped Roland win the Tournament of Champions, knocking off Tulsa Union in the finals, and he scored 41 points in the state championship loss to Douglass.
Coach of the Year
Dewayne Bradley, Midwest City
The story: You could argue no one played better team basketball this year than Bradley's Bombers. Their intense defense and opportunistic offense took them up the national rankings and within one play of a state championship. And they did it all with the majority of the roster standing 6-foot-1 and shorter, regularly facing teams with much more size.
