Special to the Drum
There was no doubt that the San Juan Basin League’s best baller wore Ignacio red, black and white.
The only possible debate was just which one of the Bobcats it would be.
Well the votes are in, and the answer is senior forward Adison Jones.
Heading up the 2A/1A circuit’s First Team All-League selections for the completed 2014-15 season, Jones’ best competition came from junior guard Wyatt Hayes – also named First Team All-SJBL, along with Mancos junior forward/center Ro Paschal, Ouray junior guard Nate Fedel and Ridgway junior guard Hasten Beamer.
IHS junior guard Tucker Ward was named to a high-flying Second Team, along with Telluride senior forward John Broadhead, MHS senior guard Jayden Peacock, Norwood sophomore forward Kade Brantingham and Dove Creek junior guard Jordan Ernst.
Dolores senior guard Mikeal Ford and THS senior guard Wilder Hanley received Honorable Mention All-League, while Mancos’ Rodney Cox was named Coach-of-the-Year after helping the Blue Jays to a 16-7 overall finish. Under Chris Valdez the Bobcats finished 23-3 and third at the Class 2A State Championships in Pueblo.
